an arctic bento?

This bento was decorated by my 8-year-old son. He wanted to pick out which picks were added and chose these ones, a dolphin and a penguin, saying that it was "a little arctic theme". I had a little OCD twitch happening with this selection, but I managed to keep my mouth zipped. I asked how the yellow bear tied in and he replied it was a polar bear. Oh, of course. I asked if dolphins really lived in the arctic and he assured me that they did. I'm quite sure they don't, but I wasn't interested in arguing so early in the morning. ;-)

L&L arctic pals
He has carrots with ranch dip in the polar bear cup (ha), strawberry cereal bar, arctic fish and strawberries.

Next he wanted to pick out the paper for the picture. I didn't notice until I uploaded it that it was robot paper. Arctic robots I'll assume. Of course.
Pin It

super cute! He did a great job!! and I noticed the background paper right away - I love it. :)

Being in Alaska, I can say, I have not seen dolphins here, although we have many species of whale, and may in fact have dolphins too. (your post did cause me to take a break and do a little internet search about them though). one site I found said dolphins live in all the oceans. I'm not as far north as the Arctic (though most people might consider all of Alaska "Arctic") :) We do have polar bears up north, but penguins are antarctic only. they don't naturally live in north america.

You have such great ideas, browsing your blog is such a treat! I'm thinking about trying to do this for my kiddos...I think they'd love it! I'd love to know where you found those cute little animal cups you use. :)
