Little Bee, Little Bee Bento



"It's time to sleep, little bee, little bee,
Yes I love you and you love me."

(Quote from Time For Bed by Mem Fox)

This page was and still is one of my most favorite ones because C and I would resit the last line in unison to each other.


This was C's box




This was M's box

Each box has a Bee shaped with rice and nori details, flower hot dogs, carrots, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. M's fruit box has melon and C's has "BZZ" made from apples. They both have strawberries and grapes. I did not color the rice all the way through. I was using rice I made yesterday so after un-molding the bees I used a paint brush and yellow food coloring diluted in water to paint on the yellow color. It works great and less mess to my hands..lol


Linking this Bento to What's For Lunch Weds Week 2!!!
