Turning 8: A Birthday Bento

Turning 8 Bento | OneCraftyThing.com

Today is the kiddo’s birthday… happy birthday, big 8 year old! I made a fun lunch on Friday to celebrate. Once a year (or so) I make a Nutella sandwich for her for lunch — this lunch has more sugar than I would normally like, but hey, it’s her birthday and the kiddo is excited. It’s a day in which she is the boss and we have to do what she says. She’s in heaven.

In this lunch:

Main A once yearly Nutella sandwich, cut to resemble an “8” with a sour belt underneath and wearing a birthday hat food pick. I didn’t have a large “8” cutter, so I made one with two circle cutters. The sandwich is double stacked.
Sides Blueberries with two balloons — the middle piece of bread from the “8” covered in Nutella and then rolled in star sprinkles. Balloon string food picks finish the look. Also, kettle corn with sprinkles and little friend picks to celebrate 🙂
Also included but not pictured Yogurt and string cheese.

World Turtle Day


Today is World Turtle Day! A day to celebrate our fine chelonian friends in the sea and on land. Today’s bento was much simpler than yesterday’s, but I’m kinda loving the way the baby turtle turned out 🙂 Happy World Turtle Day!

Main PB&J cut up with a cookie cutter that does custom messages. Also, on top, little turtle sprinkles.
Sides The little turtle is made from a cantaloupe ball (used a melon baller) and green grapes. His eyes were just parts of the grape stems to make them a little bulgy. Also included were blueberries and strawberries.
Also Included but Not Pictured More melon and grapes and a yogurt
