Posts Tagged ‘Nick Jr.

I had a long, frustrating day yesterday with the girls so I decided to pour it into making some extra special bentos for today’s lunches.  They both love Olivia the pig on Nick Jr.  Their friend, Ada Sofia, loves her more than them both combined so this is for her too.  And it’s a continuation of the letter “O” week at school where they both learn about everything having to do with the letter and  practice writing their “O”s.

Miss G gets the more elaborate princess Olivia in her red gown.  The “bread” is flatbread with veggie “meat” and “cheese” slices and the details are in fruit leather in her stainless LunchBots bento container.

The separate container has freshly picked sugar snap peas and strawberries from a local farm with a prune for good measure (iron & fiber and vitamin A).  She also has a little pic container full of unsalted mixed nuts (cashews, pistachios and a big walnut).

Miss A gets the big Olivia face made from the same.

Her heart container has fresh strawberries, a little pig container with lid of raisins inside, a pink container of the same type of mixed nuts and dried apricot chunks.  Both girls have ice waters with their lunches.

Ever since I made the Kai Lan bento, Miss G has continued to ask me to make it.  I asked her who her 2nd favorite character is, and she said Rintoo.   Rintoo is Kai Lan’s little tiger friend who is loud & playful.  I used a kitchen glass upside down to cut his face and a small circle cutter to cut his ears.  The stripes are the heel of the bread handcut with a knife.  He has fruit leather eyes and mouth with vanilla yogurt covered raisin bits for the pupils and his snaggletooth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Along with Rintoo, Miss G has flower carrots on the left, the pig container contains ranch dip and the bamboo shaped watermelon chunks.  The watermelon actually looks like upside down bats…note to self for Halloween!   On the right are seedless green grapes with some fun decorative picks.

Miss A gets Annie’s Organic macaroni shells on the bottom covered by corn off the cob, three little colby cheese bears and leftover chicken breast pieces.  The middle bear has black sesame seed eyes.

Which way to the fruit?  Quartered seedless green grapes with watermelon arrows and a blackberry in the middle.

Mr. Working Man gets his usual sandwich and a giant bento of fruits & veggies to keep him healthy. Included are watermelon chunks (some hidden), seedless green grapes, mini carrots, blackberries on toothpicks, 2 medjool dates and a Babybel cheese in the middle.

Miss G chose to be Kai Lan last year for Halloween, and she still loves to watch her.  Ni Hao Kai Lan is a little Chinese cartoon on Nick Jr.  She teaches little kids words in Mandarin Chinese.   I admit that I woke up a little earlier today to work on this one to surprise her. I made an oval for Kai Lan’s face and cut a circle in half for her ears.  Her hair is all hand cut raspberry fruit leather as are the eyelashes.  The eyes, eyebrows, nose & mouth are cut with a small oval cutter .  The whites of her eyes (yellows) are gruyere cheese.  I cut dried apricot flowers for her hair bows and secured them with 1/2 toothpicks underneath.  I did the same with the eyes and split one of them doing it 😦  The Ni Hao (“hi” in Mandarin Chinese) was also cut with my alphabet cutters using dried apricots.  My husband got the outer parts of the apricots in his lunch!

To go along with the sandwich, I included flower shaped strawberries, mini carrots, cashews and a Clif Kid organic fruit twist for a treat.  Not shown are an applesauce pouch, Lifeway Kefir pouch and an ice water.   Hope everyone has a great weekend!
