Baon Buddies: Bento Box Fun
Aqua Adventure Bento Box
Bento boxes are the Japanese versions of lunch boxes. While these are appropriate for people of all ages, making a bento box for your child can be a fun challenge when you try to make it so cute and attractive that your child can't help but finish everything that's in it!
Choose a food art design that your child really enjoys. If he likes sports, make basketball food items. If she is into princesses, shape her food into princess tiaras or crowns.
Clean carrots and cucumbers, and cut them into half-circle shapes (crosswise).
Tear lettuce leaves into strips to resemble seaweed.
Peel, de-seed and cut an apple into eights to represent the sea floor.
