oh! Bento!

When I was at school lunch was usually a vegemite sandwich. Sometimes we'd mix it up a bit with peanut butter or, if we were super lucky a lunch order from the canteen!

Can you imagine what it must be like to open your lunch box to one of these fancy lunches??

(some are really amaing - look at these and these!)


see what other peeps have to say about school lunches here


  1. I've got a huge frog cookie cutter that I use for Lily's sandwiches - then I give it some eyes and some cucumber lilypads. Its not in the league of these bento but for the timepoor its pretty good!

  2. My girls' lunches are always sandwiches - Nutella, butter & jam, peanut butter & the occasional leftover roast beef. I can't let them see these bento lunches.

  3. They are SO cute - but I can't eat anything with a smiley face! I'm weird like that! How GREAT are bento, though?! Lovely mosaic - so thank you!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a nice day =)
