Frozen 2 Bento Box – No Fancy Sandwich Art!

by Wendy Copley on December 6, 2019

Have you seen Frozen 2 yet? Augie and I went to see it Sunday night and we LOVED it!

Anna! Elsa! Olaf! That cute little fire lizard whose name I don’t know!

To channel some of that excitement I made a Frozen lunch and I’ve got a video showing YOU how to do it right here: 

The best part? There’s no fancy sandwich or rice art in this bento so it’s actually, really, truly, realistic to make it on a weekday morning. Hooray!
