I had a little fun today with the bentos. I was trying to figure out something that I could do with a dino sandwich cutter that I had. The kids were really interested in having a "dino" lunch. I also remembered that it was pizza day for the two oldest, so if they didn't like it, it wouldn't be a big deal. So, here's the result.
Bentos for 3 kids:
Wow, fun stuff! I've seen dinos eating brocoli trees before, but didn't think my kids would go for it... they loved it! I figure if I can toss in a simple tree, I'm at least getting something in their lunch they never had before, and it's a veggie, so double wow! Here's the lowdown. all are two tier bentos. Blue for boy, pink for girl, and two thinner pink ones for the 3 yr old girl. Basic ingredients.... Good old Bologne and cheese sandwich, brocolli, strawberry, cucumber, grapes, cheese cutouts, tomatoes, and one lone chocolate mini muffin on the top left. I found my spiral cutters, so I mad the cukes out of that, then used some christmas tree cutters for the trees. I dunno if it worked, but they liked it. Oh, the kids thought the dinos needed spots, so we added a few halloween sprinkles for eyes and spots. Fun fun!
