School’s almost over for us.  It’s hard to believe since the days drag, but the weeks fly.  This week is a continuation of Under The Sea theme.  Miss G requested a submarine.  I have to admit it would be one of the last things I ever would have come up with.  It was so creative that I agreed.

She has a Justin’s Almond Butter and jam on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread.  I used a rolling pin to flatten the bread before hand cutting the submarine.  It has fruit leather portholes.  She has a date whale with coconut flakes on top next to the boat.  At the top left are mango slices with a blowfish pick and at the top right are watermelon slices with a small sea turtle pick.

I didn’t feel like making 2 subs so Miss A got an octopus today.  Hers was cut from a biscuit cutter and then I used the biscuit cutter to cut “legs” out of the remaining bread.  His hat is a date roll with coconut flakes shaped into a hat.  The eyes are candy eyes stuck on with almond butter and so is the fruit leather mouth. At the top left is a mandarin orange with a dolphin pick, at top right are watermelon pieces with an octopus baran (food separator), and in the yellow oval are mango pieces with an octopus pick.

My husband has a salad & sides to go with his lunch today.  His salad is organic romaine lettuce,with a locally grown, sliced tomato courtesy of my generous neighbor (Thank you!), unsalted, raw walnuts, mini carrots and cauliflower.  At the top left are dried apricots and a date roll with coconut flakes and at the top right are watermelon slices.  All 3 lunches today are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.

It’s my first review and giveaway!  FunBites was generous enough to offer me the opportunity to try one of their FunBites cutters.  I chose the Luv It heart shaped cutter to review, and they also will be giving one away to one of my lucky readers!  Details below for this giveaway and a few others too!

A few of the first things I noticed when it arrived was that it was made in the USA. Who doesn’t love supporting a business that keeps their money and employees right here at home?  The next was that it’s a fun bright color which my kids were instantly attracted to, wanted to play with and wanted to try out.  The most important thing as a mom is that the product is sturdy.  I let the 2 and 3 year old have a go at it, and I honestly don’t think they could scratch or break it if they tried.  It’s a very well-made product and washes very easily.  As a bento-making mom I also want something functional that give me options.   It also has a “popper” to pop your food out without having to poke at it and ruin the shape.   I like the fun heart shape that it makes, and I wanted to try to find other things to make from it.

For little Miss G I chose to separate the large heart, turn it upside down and make some sailboats out of it.  The boats were cut out of two pieces of whole grain bread & filling was done after the cutting with almond butter & jam.  I cut a piece of Veggy  brand “cheese” to make the sun and fish.  The “water” is barley colored with India Tree natural food coloring.  I also used the FunBites cutter for the mango pieces in the green cup and the strawberries in the blue cup below.  Her lunch is packed in an Easy Lunch Box.

For Little Miss A I chose an ice cream cone theme.  Again, the FunBites cutter washed off quickly with little scrubbing for reuse.  Her bread was also cut from 2 pieces of whole grain bread and filled with almond butter & jam after cutting.  I used the cutter with a sweet & sara brand vegan marshmallow cut in half for the “ice cream”  and shook on some fun sprinkles. Both are topped with a fruit leather heart shaped “cherry”.  Inbetween the cones are dried apricots cut from the very same cutter.  The pink heart container has raisins in it.  At the top right is a clementine with a fruit leather heart and below are all watermelon pieces and a pineapple chunk all cut with the FunBites Luv It.  Her lunch is also packed in an Easy Lunch Box.
