Lunch Box Ideas: Bentos for Kids

I had never even heard of "bento" box lunches until one of my coworkers introduced me to them. I did a google image search and showed my girls. They were SO excited! They get so tired of taking the same things to lunch all the time. This is a way they can be creative which their lunches. Nina and Alyssa decided to make "practice" lunches. I didn't really have box lunch items since it's summertime, but I think Nina did pretty good with what she found.

You can find all sorts of fun things to add to your bento boxes online and at Asian stores, but it's fun to get creative with what you have at home too!

And then there's Alyssa's bento creation. She's such a kook. She worked forever on it. What a goof-ball!

Where did you get your Bento boxes?

I just started using Bento boxes for school lunches too. My picky eater is so hard to please. I thought this would be a fun way to give her lots of choices and help out with the process. I figure it will probably be the only way I get her to actually eat her lunch!
