Reindeer Christmas Bento 🙂 Sandwich as usual, using a gum drop Dot for a nose, marshmallows/mini M&Ms for eyes and pretzels for antlers. It’s hard to see but I tried to give him some eyebrows for some eye definition, too. Sides are pistachios and a little cup of M&Ms.
Gingy today as a nod to our gingerbread houses 🙂 Sandwich with marshmallow eyes (with sprinkle irises), a strawberry Rip mouth, sprinkle bow tie and buttons. Peppermint disk for fun 🙂 Grape and gingerbread cookie sides.
