beary nice snack bento

We are going to make the most of this sunny day and heading out.This is my little girl's snack/mini-lunch to have while we are away for a few hours. :)

primary bear bento

On the left side are cucumber slices with hummus and strawberries.
On the right are little deli rolls of ham and provolone cheese in front, with Goldfish crackers in the back. A little silicone barran keeps the crunchy things separate from the moist things. :)

Happy Friday everyone!

Hello. Can I ask -- where do you get the cute little seperators and toothpic/teddy fork?

Hello Caroline Alexander! :) The little teddy fork was one of the first sets of bento forks I got, I got the little set from ebay. I believe that particular set was called Click Clack and there were about 8 in the package. If you are interested in shopping for them on ebay the term "bento fork" or "bento picks" will turn up a lot of results.
There used to be an online Japanese dollar store that sold a lot of bento gear for very cheap (everything was $1.50!!). That is where I ordered the silicone barran from (three pieces in a set). Sadly, their online store closed. They do have some real stores located in northern CA if you happen to live in that area!

Otherwise, there are some slim pickings on Amazon, a lot on ebay. And necessity is always the mother of invention...when I first started doing bento I used picks I found at a cake decorating store, tupperware boxes, and I'd use small pieces of waxed paper to divide items.
