Bento No. 72 - Blueberry Panda

Little Miss E is still not feeling well, she was cranky and can't sleep well through the night.
So I got to make another speedy bento again.

Pin the blueberries as the ears and nose of the Panda on Kaya sandwich with short spagetti strips. I cut some Nori and Cheese for the eyes and mouth too.

Bento No. 71 - Little Chick

Hello! Its Monday again! Time flies. For me, it has been zombie nights these weekend, my little Miss E caught a serious Flu. She was crying through the night.

I have to take leave today to bring her to the paedatrician and take care of her at home.

So I made a speedy bento, use the zig zag cutter for the cracked egg shell, and oval cutter on a piece of Cheese for the chick. Another small piece of triangular Cheddar Cheese for the beak.

Drop in a few blue berries and grapes in the Cherry food cup too.

Bento No. 70 - Did you find any Easter Eggs?

The Easter holiday mood is setting in, E joined an Happy Easter colouring contest organised by local Bank, it was submitted by the school last week.

Made a few Egg shaped sammies, nested them in the peapod silicon cup as Easter eggs hiding between the grass.

I decorate the Easter eggs with Cheese and the colour candy sheets. Drop in few grapes too.

Let's start the easter egg hunting fun! Maybe you wish to ask the Cheeky Bunny for some clues. :P

E was amused by my Easter Eggs sammies. He said its cute. :)

Just shared this Easter Bento at Shannon's WFLW, have you shared yours ?

Bento No. 69 - Unicorn

Happy Monday Everyone! (As it usually won't be a "Happy" Monday, so just to cheer up a bit.) Today I choose the "Horse Shape" Wilton's animal cutters to make a Unicorn. The Unicorn itself is triple deck sammies with jam and Cheese. Trim a strip of rainbow colour candy sheets as its mane, Cheese as the tail. Use a sharp end of the food pick as the Horn and add a pair of wings on the Unicorn's back.

Unicorn is an elegant and mystical creature, so i suppose it usually appears in the sky. I added an imaginary cloud shape sammies friend floating in the sky.

Inside the box are a piece of homemade orange flavour Konyaku Jelly, grapes and Laughing Cow flavoured cube cheese (This pink one taste like ham, E loves it).

When I asked E whether he knows what is in the box, he said " Unicorn".

Phew! I am relieved he recognised it as Unicorn. :)

Bento No. 67 - A fun day at the park

Today I use the mini cutters on cheese to make a little rabbit and bear. They are holding their balloons and running around the park happily.

My boy loves to go to the park to run around and feed the fishes in the pond with bread crumbs. It has been a while I didn't bring him to the park. Hope little Miss E will learn to run soon, so she can play hide and seek with his brother. :)

Cut two more grapes as Tulips in the garden.
