sorta-sushi sandwich rolls snack bento

This was a snack made for my girl. I wanted her to dawdle over her snack as much as possible so I could enjoy some Starbucks and mind-numbing magazine as long as possible today, so I put more effort into her snack bento than I usually do! ;-) And I think it turned out pretty darn cute!

butterfly Sandwich Sushi bento
On the right side are some sandwich-rolled "sorta-sushi" bites, made of bread (whole wheat white bread - the closest thing to wheat my husband will eat willingly) with cream cheese and strawberry preserves. Behind those are some cheddar cheese butterflies decorated with sprinkles. :)
On the left are raspberries, silicone barran to provide a barrier for the crunchy things in back - a piece of granola bar, mini saltine crackers and a few almonds.

My trickery worked! My little miss oohed and awed over her little snack, happily nibbling away and I got to relax while enjoying my coffee. :) Yay!

Love the sprinkles on the butterfly cheese! I made my lil one some butterfly cheeses yesterday and that would have been perfect!

Super cute, love the butterflies! What kind of bento box is it? Looks like one of the Disney Store ones but I haven't seen that color.

Shannnon, it is a Disney Store one - it had Tinkebell and some other fairies on the lid? I don't really know who they are? I'm such a bad girl mom! LOL
Of course, that lid BROKE (surprise surprise!) and the only non-broken Disney Store box we have left is a Cars one, so that's the lid that went on it. ;-)
Those boxes are such a nice size and looked so cute it's really too bad those latches were so crummy.
Our Disney Store closed and I got in there one of the last days they were open when everything was on super clearance. I could have gotten some more of those boxes for $2 a piece, but I wasn't even tempted. Such a pity!

Anything that lets you enjoy Starbucks is a winner in my book!

We've broken a few of ours too, just dropping the lid cracked the plastic and made a super sharp spot where it broke off. But since I am glutton for punishment I just picked up a few new ones last week. The square Toy Story one and the battery shaped Lightening McQueen ones have a stackable cup inside, kind of a neat size for snacks since that is all I pack nowadays.

I don't think I ever saw those ones.
The lid for this Tinkerbell box, the whole hinge broke off in my fingers when I was opening closing it to put away one day. Just ridiculous! :(
