I was very excited to have this bento lunch sponsored by goodnessknows in partnership with One2One Network.
Have you noticed that I have a lot of themed lunches for the boys? I have found that if I have a theme for the week that I can quickly come up with creative ideas. I don’t have to think as much each day about what I’m going to pack, I can plan a few lunches all at once.Themes for lunches don’t have to be over the top. Sometimes I do all muffin lunches or all PB&J sandwiches.
Great ways to come up with themes for your week is start looking at holidays, your child’s favorite cartoon or game, or what they are learning about in school. Zarek is learning about trees and their life cycles so I did a whole tree themed lunch for him.
Last week was Minecraft Lunch Week for the boys so I made a few different fun Minecraft themed lunches. This lunch is so easy and you don’t need any special tools! I even made you a quick video sharing exactly how to make this bento.
