Kindergarten Color Days - Purple Laptop Lunches bento

Paige was positively tickled pink purple this morning, the long awaited Purple Day in Kindergarten.  She was giddy as her purple Converse was cinched and tied up. So much so that she took to running laps through the kitchen and family room, arms outstretched Superman style, shouting "purple power!". Oh to be five again! :)

Here's to hoping her purple lunch will power her through the day.

Purple Day Laptop Lunches

Packed in a plum colored Laptop Lunches box:
- ham, cheese and mustard sandwich on multigrain bread
- farm fresh plums, decorated with a purple crayon pick
- Trader Joe's cheesy corn puff stuff
- a boxed grape berry Odwalla  fruit smoothie 

The sandwich  was cut in half with the dolphin shaped Lunch Punch. The two sandwich halves stack and fit perfectly in the medium inner box.

I was compelled to buy the Odwalla smoothies when I spied them at my local Super Target this weekend, after viewing the video by Weelicious last week. I almost bought the strawberry banana flavor (in a pinky red box), but remembered in the knick of time that the purple box of the grape berry flavor would work well for Purple Day.  Whew. ;-)

Speaking of remembering (or in this case, not) I forgot to stick the purple-crayon-printed string cheese in the side of her Laptop Lunches box. It would have fit nicely in the vertical space on the right side, where utensils are meant to go. Darn.

Supplies used in the making of this lunch:

I love this... and the color-coded lunches for the color days also help her eat a rainbow! I hope all the moms thought to do such colorful lunches.

I truly love this blog. It is so inspiring to see the lunches you pack. What I wouldn't give to have your assortment of boxes and supplies!

Thanks, ladies! :)

Daylynne, I'll tell you this - my assortment of boxes and supplies can be FUN for sure, but it's also a curse! My kitchen runneth over with this stuff. Bento loot is stashed in just about every nook and cranny. I need a second pantry!
