Happy 2012! Well, we are finally back to a routine in our schedules after the long break so it’s back to bentoing.
For Christmas, Paige received an Angry Birds board game which the kids have been playing quite a bit. It gave me the idea to make this bento (pictured above) with the pig surrounded by the blocks. I used a couple of picks for his ears and sugar eyes both of which you can find at All Things For Sale. I made the peanut butter and jelly sandwich fist and then cut out the pigs head using a small oval cutter. Then I cut the top off of the sandwich and then the two sides to make the blocks. Then I took a small slice of bread from the leftover sandwich and cut a smaller oval for the snout and poked a couple of holes for his nostrils.
Bear chicken and veggie burgers with rice and a few veggies. The hat picks are available at All Things for Sale as well!
Here are a few pics from our vacation! The view from Makapu’u Light House trail.
Fun at the beach.
