Bento for Kids

Sandwich flower, originally uploaded by bentomom.
Making the kids lunches everyday, the same things..day after day....BORING! I was searching for new and interesting ideas to make their lunches a little more fun for not only them but for me! I immediately fell in love with Bentomom and her Bento Box Lunches for Kids. Now this is one AMAZING mom!

Check out all Bentomom's amazing ideas!

Now this is a little extreme for me. I did give it a try and it is quite time consuming, but well worth it! The kids were thrilled and couldn't wait to show it to their friends...and EAT IT! I felt like I had sent them off with a newly improved healthy lunch with a twist! Because this takes a little planning and effort...I am not doing this on a daily basis, but thought Friday Lunch Fun was an option for me. Fridays used to be the day that I would send in a cookie or something sweet, but I think this tops that, don't you think?

One of my creative snacks....the kids loved it!

  3. Hi Stacey, thank you so much for visiting me and leaving a comment.

    About your answer I can tell you that if the photo was taken by the owner of the blog you'd better ask for permission. Generally, the rule is that is courtesy to link back to the blog they're taken from... Hope this can help you. Good luck with your new blog!!!
