The Week in Bentos: June 30 – July 3, 2014

by Wendy Copley on July 7, 2014

Hey lunch packers! We have a light slate of bentos this week because Wyatt did not attend camp and the holiday on Friday made it extra short. But the lunches I have to share are pretty cute.

Preschooler Cute Tiger Bento #678

On Monday I pulled out our new Cuddle Palz set and used it to make this cutie-patootie tiger sandwich. I filled it with pb&j and put a little wild animals napkin underneath it. I also packed hummus, red pepper strips, cucumber slices and strawberries. Super easy and super cute! I used our folding sandwich bento box.


Preschooler Bento #679

Tuesday I was in a rush so I packed this very fast and simple lunch: hummus in a Lego container, cukes, crackers, strawberries and turkey meatballs. It came together so fast that I had a minute to add some picks so I poked in a bee, lady bug and a daisy from the new set of picks I got last week.


Preschooler Soccer Panda Bento #680

Wednesday, Augie had this soccer bears bento box that I packed for last week’s 3 Tools, 4 Lunches post. You can get more details about it here.


Preschooler 4th of July Bento #681

On Thursday, I packed this 4th of July themed lunch in our Yumbox. I started off with a couple of picnic staples: watermelon and corn. (Yeah, it’s not corn on the cob, but close enough!). I also put in blueberries, decorated with strawberry stars to give it a patriotic feel and then I reversed them and filled a compartment with strawberries with a few more blueberries to add to the red and blue. Finally, I rolled up some salami slices and poked a blue pinwheel pick in them. That felt sort of reminiscent of fireworks to me.


There was no school because we were celebrating the 4th of July! I hope my American friends had a great holiday.
