Here is the 3rd & final post of my Bento Basics series. BUT the tips won’t stop here. Come back each Thursday in August for more Bento fun. More info at the bottom this post!
Tip: Appeal to your eater. Got a Star Wars or Butterfly lover at home? Use that theme in their lunch. Does your child wear Hello Kitty PJs every night? Get some Hello Kitty cookie cutters & supplies for their lunch.
|Hello Kitty lover will gobble up lunch in this box!|
|Mickey lovers will dig having their sandwich & fruit cut like this!|
Tip: Get the kids involved! I have introduced the ease of bento lunches at a birthday party, girl scouts, and play date. I got a variety of cookie cutters out with sandwich fixings & food picks. The kids loved it and gobbled up their lunches. More info here.
Tip: Get ideas from others. There are lots of bento bloggers out there, which means that thousands and thousands of bentos have been posted. No need to be original. Get & share ideas with others. Here are 4 great link bento link parties. Don’t forget tip 3 from part 1~ don’t compares yours to others! Just get ideas!
