10th day of Christmas: ten lords a leaping

Leaping lizards frog lords! I had to take some creative license privileges to pull off ten lords a leaping. These are an amphibian variety of lords.

10th day of Christmas
The contents of this bento box lunch:
- peanut butter & jelly sandwich
- cucumbers
- strawberries
- grapes
- dry roasted edamame
- clementine orange
- gummy frogs

The sandwich was cut with The Lunch Punch frog cutter and decorated with a fruit leather crown and icing eyes. It was the Lunch Punch that inspired me to use frogs to pull off the leaping lords. Gotta love Lunch Punch! :)

Two of the cucumber chunks were cut using a frog-face-shaped mini cutter and also decked out with mini icing eyes. Aren't they cute?

Two sideways grapes wearing crowns and buggy icing eyes become two more little leaping lords. I love these little guys!

I can't tell you how many times I counted the frogs going into this box to make sure I wasn't leaving any out. Over and over again I counted. And somehow I still managed to mess it up.

If you count the frog shaped mini cup that holds the edamame there are actually eleven frogs in this bento box. Doh! (major forehead-slap moment) I can't believe it. Pass me the dunce cap.

This is part 10 of a 12 part bento series on the Twelve Days of Christmas! :)

I love this bento! Are there cheaper ways to get those icing eyes? I love those, but 14 dollars is a bit much I think.

Uniflame, some people have said they have found them at local candy shops. I haven't had any luck finding them anywhere in person yet, though! :)

the froggie cup doesn't have icing eyes, so it doesn't really count. you got it right at 10! ;)

I found an online store in the Netherlands that carries icing eyes so I think I am going to order in some :)

I think this is the cutest one yet! Those gummy frogs look good right now. I haven't had those since high school.
