This week was not my best bento week, but Zane still loved it. So this really does show, that even if you think that your lunch looks terrible, your kids will still love it.

Bento PirateMonday: Pirate Bento: Pirate Kabobs made with olives, cheese stick, hot dogs, and mini sweet peppers. Whole wheat chocolate chip muffin, grape island with a sweet pepper X, and a fruit cup.

  • Stick with one fruit for the week, even with a themed week makes lunches go faster
  • Find fun accents like cupcake toppers and picks to inspire your lunch themes
