I get a lot of inspiration from other blogs. So, in hopes someone might get some inspiration from me, I've decided to post some pictures here.

My Bento Baby

Avery didn't have school today so she's home with me. She wanted to make her own lunch and decided to make it "bento style". She decided on a "stars and moon" theme.
She used a large moon shaped cookie cutter to cut her sandwich and then had fun using my new food markers to add faces. (One was me and one was her Daddy.)
Then she used small moon and star cutters to cut a piece of cheese. She used the markers to add faces to those too...the stars were her and her sister and the moons were me and her Daddy.
Her finished product!
2 PB&J sandwiches on whole wheat (I would have had the moons facing the other direction but who am I to direct an artist!), cheddar moons and stars, peas, and a fruit salad made of strawberries, banana moons and blueberries on star picks.


  1. A Bento Maker in the making!! :)

  2. My daughter saw this and said: she's so pretty! lol She kinda looks a bit like my daughter too, or could be the glasses. Fun idea her making her own lunch.

  3. Ahhh Kelly - please tell your daughter "thank you!"

  4. So cute! Just found your blog ~ love it!
