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.

If I had kept up with the paperwork that comes home from school, I would have known about kite day earlier!  Instead, Miss G’s teacher was kind enough to remind me yesterday.  I had another transportation lunch planned, but I decided to reroute.  It’s actually the perfect idea because my little girls have been very into Mary Poppins lately so I was thinking about the song, “Let’s Go Fly A Kite”.    I did a FunBites giveaway a few weeks back, and I had a kite idea that I didn’t use. The two kites at the bottom were cut using the FunBites Luv It! cutter.

FunBites Luv It!

At the top left are pineapple chunks cut with the FunBites Luv It cutter and topped with a heart strawberry.  To the right is Sabra hummus in an orange flower cup.  The heart in the middle is a snow pea, on the KITE picks are edamame and below are mini carrots for dipping in the hummus.  The bottom 2 kite sandwiches are made on Rudi’s Nut & Oat bread cute with the FunBites Luv It! cutter which can be found through their site or on Amazon.  Both have almond cutter & strawberry jam inside.  The kite to the left is topped with Veggy brand soy cheese, and the clouds are also made from the same cheese.  The kite strings are made from black rice vermicelli.  Miss G’s lunch is pack in an Easy Lunch Box, and she has ice water with her lunch.  In keeping with our new diet, her whole lunch is plant-based and vegan.

Below are the other lunches I made with the same cutter.  The giveaway is over, but there will be another one coming up soon so please stay tuned!  FunBites Fun Food Ideas for Kids (and big kids)

My neighbor and I decided to try to stuff all the little tummies before the candyfest this evening.  We divided up duties and made a fun and healthier feast.  Most of the kids are under 4 which makes it a little tough.   We decided on PB & Js on whole grain bread since there were no food allergies in the group. The PB & Js are the skeletons and pumpkins so the jelly would “bleed” through the eyes and mouths.   We also made owls, cats and a few brooms.  We used pre-made candy eyes and used plastic rings as decorations.

 

We also did cups with ranch dip on the bottom and carrot & celery sticks stuck in them after seeing the idea on Pinterest.

Mandarin orange cups with Sharpie marker faces on them.

Green and black seedless grapes with skeleton rings.

Also included (and not impressive) were Sabra mini hummus cups with pretzels.

Hope everyone had a safe & fun Halloween evening!

 

I received a lovely package from a good friend who sent me all kinds of fun Halloween things including these ghost and bat shaped corn chips.  Miss G will use them to dip in her hummus sprinkled with pumpkins & bats.  To the right is a sliced plum, and below is a homemade corn muffin stamped with a ghost.  I also cut up a string cheese with a crinkle cutter to make little ghosts and next to those are mini carrots with ranch dip in the bunny container.

 

Little A has a similar lunch today.  Her picture is a bit out of focus today, but I didn’t notice until now so it’s blurry. Sorry!  She’s got a small container of Sabra hummus too with sprinkles, green snap peas for dipping, red seedless grapes sliced in half,  the same string cheese ghosts, grape tomatoes halved and a bunch of yogurt covered raisins with ghost faces.

I use these Foodoodler food safe markers for writing on food.  You can buy them through their site, on Amazon and even at most local kitchen stores in the baking section.

Every little girl needs some pirate fun in their lunch.   Miss G had a skull & bones soybutter and jelly sandwich today surrounded by Halloween themed marshmallows for a surprise.

She had grape tomatoes, bat & skull head watermelon chunks (black sesame seed eyes), and on the right are Dominex brand Eggplant parmesan bites and a BabyBel cheese.

Little A finally went back to school today after a week of sniffles.  We’ve had the back-to-school crud here for weeks! She had pumpkin shaped watermelon on the left with green seedless grapes and blackberries.  On the right was Back to Nature brand bug shaped macaroni & cheese.  I mixed in leftover corn ,carrots, peas & edamame to get her to eat her veggies.

She also ate all her Sabra hummus with green pea sticks for dipping.

My husband also got a sandwich today (not pictured) and a bento full of fruits (black seedless grapes and blackberries) & veggies (mini carrots & grape tomatoes) for munching at his desk.  Wishing everyone a lovely fall weekend!

 

I love cookie cutters.  If you’re running short on time in the morning, like I usually am, it’s a great way to make a cute lunch with minimal effort.  I also found the tiny star cutters in Michael’s in the cake decorating aisle.  They are fondant cutters.  She had her usual peanut butter & jelly with a royal icing eye (purchased through Amazon), honey wheat pretzel braids to dip in her hummus, and mozzarella cheese stars.  Her fruit bento is manadarin oranges, watermelon stars and blackberries.

Little A has been sort of an enigma.  It’s the toddler thing.  One day she’s crazy about a food and the next she flat out refuses it.  I have to keep trying new things.  Today she had the same star theme for her lunch.   The heart bento has mandarin oranges on the left with mozzarella cheese stars and watermelon stars on the right.  In the blue bento she has Annie’s Organic Macaroni & cheese shells on the bottom with carrots and Applegate ham stars on top.

This was from last week’s lunches.  I’m just behind on posting.   I was running late the morning I made this.  I used a dinosaur cookie cutter.  I used a chocolate decorator drop for the eye and the leftover crust for the plates and the spiked tail on the Stegosaurus.  I added some wheat spiral umbrella cookies I found at the Asian grocery store along with the snack size Sabra hummus, whole grain pretzel sticks and Craisins in the stainless LunchBot bento.  In the butterfly container, I cut strawberries with my stainless flower vegetable & fruit cutter and filled in the space with raspberries & blueberries.

Little sis got a smaller version of the lunch.  She also had the hummus with mini bread sticks for dipping, cashews and in the heart bento she got raspberries, blueberries, flower shaped strawberries and a mini PB&J circle sandwich.  Both girls had a Lifeway Kefir pouch and waters with their lunches.
