So i thought of making my first back to school bento for E. I use a round cutter to make the face of the little girl and boy from kaya sandwich.
They have dressed up well and hair was nicely done. A pink ribbon pick for the girl and a green bow pick for the boy.
Put a few musical notes pick I got recently on the grapes. It looks like the notes are floating around while the kids are singing their Kindy songs along with the music. I put in a few colourful mini Microphone chocolate i bought from my recent trip as a treat for Ethan. ( I noticed E does not really fancy Chocolate, which is a good thing I guess?)

2011 is the Year of Rabbit/Hare in the Chinese Zodiac. And the Chinese New Year is just around the corner..Yipee! we love the New Year atmosphere where we got to eat all the good food, Lion Dance and Firecrackers/Fireworks.
To celebrate the year of rabbit, I will make my first bunny bento.
Use difference type of Rabbit cutter to cut some Chiffon Cake, Cheese and Nori for the eyes, nose and mouth.
I made a happy family with a papa, mama and baby bunny. Nothing is better than to have a healthy and happy family.
Add in some Starfruits, mini honey Mandarin orange (its very sweet and juicy, we got plenty of them during period of Chinese New Year) and grapes to fill up the box. Two orange gummies camouflage as Carrots as a treat for E.

E requested for a Mouse bento from the Story book - " The City Mouse and Country Mouse."
I have been reading him night time story since he was 2. I just bought a batch of books recently. And I have finished reading all of them to him, some of them repeated not twice but many times. :)
Hmm.. think its time to replenish the books again. Last night,E requested a Country Mouse bento, so I happily obliged.
I use the newly added Mickey Mouse cutter to cut Strawberry sammies and Banana cake into 2 different colour Mouse.
So there is a White city mouse and a Brown country mouse.
I use 2 different tones of cheese as their ears and nose for contrast. Nori for eyes and whiskers.
Added skewers of grapes and some Cheese crackers. Though they look different , they both love Cheese for sure. :)
Have added this to Shannon's WFLW week 32.
