Ethan is loving those Star Wars cookie cutters. I'm crossing fingers for Williams-Sonoma to release some Strawberry Shortcake (old school SS, thankyouverymuch) or CareBears or something more my speed. I'm not holding my breath though. ;-)
This week Ethan has Cub Scout day camp, which means a week of packed lunches. So, fun waste-free lunch for today, packed in an EasyLunchboxes container:
On the left he has a dish of pretzel sticks (dish is from a Sassy box) with a cheddar cheese Yoda on top (turned out nicely!), and a bunch of strawberries and raspberries.
On the right are pickles, a Trader Joe's cereal bar and a granola bar.
That little blue fork/pick was a fun find. I found a box of 100 in assorted colors at Dollar Tree for just $1.00! Cool deal! They were stocked over in the kitchen utensil area, with spatulas and stuff like that. :) We've used them quite a few times for lunches already but I don't think I ever posted a picture of them yet. They've been working out great and I totally don't stress one itty bit over them making it back home (though so far they have!).
On a related note, Ethan begged for more Star Wars grilled cheese sandwiches this past weekend and he packed his own little bento box. I made the sandwiches, but the rest of this is the handiwork of my 8-year-old.
Under all those carrots and berries was a whole sliced kiwi. I suggested that he make it visible, but he said "the kiwi isn't important, this bento is all about my blaster". Yes, that weird, er, I mean interesting carrot and raspberry rod thing is a Storm Trooper blaster. He was very happy with his creation and told me I could use his blaster idea anytime I wanted. (LOL LOL LOL) ;-)
