A Clown for Lunch

Today is Carnival day for my son’s Summer Camp and so I decided to prepare him something related and familiar to carnivals, a clown! I have him a clown for lunch! Here’s what I made:

clown lunch bento

This clown lunch is made of spaghetti (leftover from last night’s dinner), I had bread for the face, placed a plump cherry for the nose, pepperoni for the cheeks, cut out cheese for the mouth, raisins for the eyes and clown hat (on top of cheese). My son said that he loves his lunch and that it is awesome!

I spent a few more of hours browsing Pinterest for clown lunch bentos and found lots, I realized that I can do it even with the simplest ingredients at home. So I hope he will finish this one and eat the cherry (which is my favourite)!

Happy Friday and have a good weekend! As for me, we will be busy packing and cleaning for our move next weekend! Wish us luck! :-)


Wordless Wednesday – Sleeping Position

My little one always sleeps in this position while riding the GO train and that is just every time we go home. I know he’s very tired because it is always way past his nap time when we go home, and this sight beholds and amazes us.

 Happy Wednesday everyone!

A “Beary” Simple Lunch #bentolove

My bento-making journey has “kicked off” again. I posted the other day the lunch I prepared for my summer camper and today, I made him a “beary” simple lunch. Here it is:

bento lunch for kids

His lunch consists of ham and bread (his favourite), snapea crisps, some red grapes, a brownie bar which I formed into a “bear” of some sort and one banana (not in photo).  As much as I want to put in more veggies and fruits in his lunchbox, I couldn’t. He just wouldn’t eat them. But if I make his favourite veggie dish, he would finish a plateful of serving! I am also not sure if he will finish those grapes, I had to remind him that he has to eat healthy and more nutritious fruits and veggies and I just got a “yes mommy!”

Hope everyone will have a “beary” nice day today!
