It’s Bunny Hop day!  My post today is one of 20+ bento bloggers with Spring/Easter/Passover ideas for fun kid foods.  I hope that you find something cute that you can make for your kids over the weekend.

Please make sure to click on the bunny at the bottom to link to the next page!

Today my girls are having, what else, bunnies!

Miss G gets the bunny booty today.   I’m playing along with the Bunny Hop button and decided she gets the backside with the fuzzy tail.  It’s Rudi’s Nut & Oat bread with the same old almond butter & jam today.  The tail is a sweet & sara brand vegan marshmallow with toasted coconut.  To the left of the bunny are mangos cut into carrot shapes.  Above at the top left are bunny cucumber slices and at the top right are watermelon bunnies packed in her Easy Lunch Box.

Miss A is still 2 which means she likes a food one day, and the next day she says it’s yucky and it’s thrown on the floor.  I try to change it up for her a bit.  She has watermelon flowers at the top left, at the top right are pita bunny chips I made with garlic powder & sea salt.  In the blue flower are pink hummus flowers.  I colored some Sabra hummus with natural India Tree red food  color derived from beets.  I froze them in a silicone mold, and I’m hoping they’ll be totally thawed by lunchtime. At the bottom left are dried apricot bunnies and a small bunny sandwich made from the same Rudi’s Nut & Oat bread with Biscoff spread inside.  The tail is made from a sweet & sara vegan marshmallow tail all packed in her stainless LunchBots Duo.

And I decided that my husband would be in on the fun today too.  He gets a spinach salad with the leftover cucumber punchouts, a green plum tomato sliced and mini carrots.  At the top left is a cornbread bunny and the top right is a California mandarin with some peeled bunny ears packed in his Easy Lunch Box.

The week before Easter is fun for me because I love building up the excitement for my girls.  How many more “sleeps” until the Bunny comes?  My kids, like most, adore little animals.  They recently got their spring pictures taken with some little baby chicks.  Miss G was VERY into mothering them and holding them while little A just stared at them.  She wasn’t sure whether or not they were scary, and every time these 3″ high chicks walked towards her she would shriek.   These chicks are the best kind.  Nothing to clean up!

Miss G has watermelon flowers at the top left with a chick pick, at the top right are blueberries and a strawberry butterfly with a duckling pick.  The chick sandwich is on Rudi’s Nut & Oat bread with almond butter & jam.  On top are slices of mozzarella and cheddar Vegan brand cheese, a candy eye and a carrot beak.   In the yellow chick cup are edamame and carrot butterflies on top, and in the Easter egg are cashews packed in an Easy Lunch Box.

Little Miss A has a duckling today with the same sandwich and Vegan soy cheese on top wearing a hat pick.  The beak and wing are carrots and the eye is a pre-made candy eye.  At the top left are blueberries with a strawberry butterfly and a chick pick, a clementine orange is next to that, and in the yellow chick cup are edamame with a carrot butterfly on top.  Her lunch is in a Hello Kitty bento box.

I also made a salad for my husband to go with his Amy’s brand frozen rice & veggie bowl lunch.  His salad is all spinach leaves underneath topped with a quartered watermelon radish (the purple slices with the green edge).  I hadn’t ever seen one before until a few months ago.  They are pretty plain looking outside, but inside they’re amazingly pretty.  They are also much spicier (I think) than a normal radish.  I also included orange & yellow carrots from the local King Family Farms and a handful of walnuts packed in his LunchBots stainless bento.

Please check back tomorrow, as I’ll be linked to Stephanie from A Pocket Full of Buttons and 15 other bento bloggers for a Bunny Hop with awesome springtime ideas for lunches!
