under the sea bento
Hot dog octopi and crab, star onigiri with candy eyes (not my best moment! haha)
penguin mini cup with ketchup for dipping, 2 cherry tomatoes from our garden
grapes, fish shaped apple pieces, carrot sticks
Rose ate almost everything :) This was a real morning rush job and one of the times that I should have been a little neater. Next time I'll plan ahead a bit more. I saw this tutorial a while back and quite frankly I just wanted to try it. I had previously bought some hot dog punches but I could never get them to turn out right so these are a free hand attempt. I actually didn't even have time in the morning to look up the tutorial and just went from memory. I see now that I didn't do the crab cuts correctly. ah well that explains it :) I also saw this fabulous Sea, How cute! bento on Bent On Better Lunches where she made the hot dog critters perfectly. This is way neater than mine and probably one of my favourites of hers. I just think it's so cute :) I'll try this again when I have a plenty of time in the morning as I think the features really make the whole thing look fabulous and features take just a little extra time. Rose was still extremely thrilled with her lunch so that is what matters most!
