Bento for the Littles {Dino Bites}

I’m still waiting on a really fun BentoUSA order…alas until it comes I must fend for myself! Ok, seriously you don’t need anything super special to create fun Bento boxes! Since I started bento-ing I found all my cookie cutter…and there are A LOT! They range from very large to thumb print size. We have tons of different themes too. Flowers, christmas {of course}, fall, Halloween, trains, cars and so on!

This Dino bento was REALLY easy! I actually FINALLY found the dinosaur cutter yesterday! I was so excited to use it! My boys loved this box…the salad made a perfect jungle and the avocado spears acted as trees 🙂 Topped off with some chips and banana! It was a hit!

Until then here are a few tricks of the Bento trade that I personally love and want…

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!

We started Bento -ing awhile ago and our family fell in love! We love bento boxes and there are so many different kinds…they are  kinda like potato chips…you can’t just have one! I’m absolutely in love with EasyLunchBoxes! We use them for all the littles meals, seriously breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks! The kids love them too! After getting our first set of 4 I decided we needed more! They are so convenient and the size is perfect!

I received the lovely bright set of four with a purple insulated lunch bag {if you know me personally, you know that the purple was not by accident nor are you surprised!} from the Lovely Kelly Lester {the smarty pants mama behind EasyLunchBoxes} From the moment I opened the package I was in love! When it comes to kids and lunch boxes/bento boxes…well…this isn’t my first rodeo! I defiantly knew what I wanted…IMG_3793

  • STURDY STURDY STURDY
  • Tight Fitting Lid
  • Stackable
  • Easy Clean up
  • A Container with a bag it actually fit in {for when where are out and about or on Homelink days}

EasyLunchBoxes EXCEEDED my expectations! First of all they are 100% stackable the containers and the lids all fit together making one perfect little package! That “perfect little package”

fits, well…perfectly in the insulated lunch bag thus making storage super easy! The actual container its self is really sturdy! These are not like those flimsy plastic containers deli meat comes in….these are the real deal!

Same thing goes for the lids…sturdy! Three of the filled containers with the lids fit in the insulated lunch bag, which is totally ideal for us! {psst, between you and me…I’m going to be placing an order for a set in the “classic” colors, one set of the mini dippers and another insulated lunch bag…my oldest has requested orange!}

EasyLunchBoxes are hands down my go to! They are the perfect size for breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks! They container in broken into three compartments the first one is roughly sandwich sized, the second one is perfect for chips, fries, fruits, veggies…just pick your favorite side and go, the third is the smallest of the three and perfect for jello, pudding, applesauce and dips! EasyLunchBoxes are the PERFECT accompaniment to all our Bento gear! Are you a fellow Bento – er  you NEED EasyLunchBoxes! Please note that although EasyLunchBoxes do seal and keep your food safe they are not leak proof…so be sure if you are packing dips or sauces grab yourself some little dippers! IMG_0908
