Fun School Lunches

School is in full swing and these are some of the fun lunches that I have packed my little Kindergartener. We went with a PlanetBox Rover for her lunchbox. So far I love it! It makes it really easy to plan and pack her lunches.
I found these cute Minion shaped graham crackers from Honey Maid. To make her sandwich I just cut it and a piece of cheddar cheese into the shape of a Minion head. On a slice of provolone cheese I cut a strip with a knife and a circle with a cookie cutter. I laid the pieces where I wanted them and trimmed the strip to fit. To draw on the face I used a Wilton Food Writer marker in black.
I carved the wax on a Babybel cheese to make a ladybug. To get perfect circles I used a hard straw from a plastic tumblers to cut the wax. I used heart picks that I got from the Dollar Tree to make her "fairy wands". I just put on a couple of grapes and then a piece of flower shaped honeydew melon to make the wands. She also had sunbutter, jelly, and granola on a bagel thin. For her treat I gave her some nut free chocolate chips :)
For the green balls I just used a melon baller on honeydew melon. I bought these super cute and easy to use egg molds on Amazon. You just pop a warm hard boiled egg into the mold, close it, and stick it in the fridge until you need the egg. I found that an extra large egg worked pretty good in the fish mold but some egg did squeeze out the sides. I just cut off the extra and they looked adorable.
I made her a homemade lunchable. I had the deli slice my Boars Head ham thick. When I got home I used a circle cookie cutter on the ham and sliced cheese. For her treat I gave her some mini marshmallows.
Sorry for the horrible photo. This was her lunch from the first day of school. I was in a big rush and didn't realize how blurry this photo was. (I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone and feel that it takes awful photos). Anyway, the white hearts are a hard boiled egg cut in half. I used my new eggs molds that I talked about on the fish lunch. You have to use extra large eggs to fill the heart mold.

  1. What adorable lunches Amber! My oldest is starting Kindergarten tomorrow (eeks!), and I will be packing snack and lunch for her. I've decided to go the bento box route because she enjoys eating a little of a lot of different things. I love your lunches! I'm going to be using egg molds as well. So excited! Thanks for the great inspiration!
