Spider Cootie (fruity onigiri), spider eggs (blueberries), wacky pasta, hot dog flower, carrots blossoms, red bell pepper spears, snap peas and salami/cheese roll ups with pickles, a gummy spider (or it could be an octopus..I dunno) and flower melons (under the gummy spider)
Today lunch once again made itself. I started with my strawberry fruity onigiri and that turned into a spider cootie. Bento Summer School Week 2 was focusing on kids finger foods and the feature was making onigiri cooties! Yes I realized I am working back words, but last week was just too busy and really I my brain just spun when trying to think of an idea for cooties. But because I hate not finishing what I started, I had to complete week 2.
After the spider was finished I wanted to incorporate this weeks theme of color. I used leftover wacky mac and tossed in butter and garlic. I got the idea for adding the spider eggs (blueberries) from a facebook post I saw from Katie at Katies Nesting Spot about spider egg sacks...lol Everything else that is thrown in there is things the girls requested for lunch..hot dog, cheese, fruit..so it worked out well.
The containers I used are these cute sandwich boxes I just found in the dollar bin at Target..so cute and a perfect size. You would think they are too small, but I was amazed at how much food I crammed in it today.
Today is What's For Lunch Weds Week 4 at Shannons blog What's For Lunch! Stop by and see all the awesome bentos from the past week!
