Happy Lunar New Year: The Year of the Sheep

Year of the Sheep Bento | OneCraftyThing.com

Happy Year of the Sheep! 😀 It’s a simple lunch for the preschool kiddo today 🙂 She wanted in on the fun. I thought a smaller Lunchbot box might be appropriate, since this one eats like a bird! Gung hay fat choy!

In this lunch:

Main Two mini peanut butter sandwiches
Sides Part of a banana carved with the year, a nut mix with yogurt covered almonds, and a couple of chocolate coins.
Also included but not pictured Probiotic strawberry smoothie

Today I used:

The Year of the Horse


Yesterday’s bento celebrated today’s Chinese New Year. Gung hay fat choi! It’s the year of the horse!

Here’s the lunch:

Main PB&J on wheat (crust for the dark part), M&M eyes, nori hair
Sides oranges, strawberries, trail mix
Also included (but not pictured) yogurt

Products included coming soon!
