winter themed sandwich bento box :)

Another little winter themed bento. 'Tis the season, afterall! :)

Sandwich box winter bento

This sandwich box holds:
- sunflower butter sandwich
- pretzel sticks
- cheddar cheese gingerbread guy and muenster candy cane
- clementine
- grapes
- pickles, because Paige insisted "I must have pickles!"

The sandwich has an impression of a gingerbread man on it. I used a toast-press thing on it, but you could get the same effect with a regular cookie cutter too. :) The front is decorated with tiny icing eyes and star sprinkles...if my last gingerbread guy looked deranged, this one looks downright scary (to me!). No, matter, Paige loved it. :) Her preschool does the cutest gingerbread man series theme this time of year and she's wholly obsessed with gingerbread people now, hence their appearance in several lunches already. :)

The cheese shapes were decorated with food-safe markers.

I am so excited for the winter break!! The bento posting may slow down, but will not completely stop while the kids are out of school. I have some catching up to do, but also, I've been working on a really fun series of posts that will start up on Christmas day! I'm really excited about them! :)

I love your site and my 4 year old even loves to look at the lunches. I just can't get him to eat any of them!!! I will keep trying. (Like one of yours, he also hates sandwiches.)

I have added a link to your site from my new blog as well. I try to tell all of my friends about your ideas. I just wish I could get some of the great lunchboxes and accessories. We do not have these things available in the UK.
