This is the Valentine Bento I made for my kids. Even though Valentine's Day is tomorrow I made it today since we'll be away tomorrow.
Heart shaped Rice "Balls" sprinkled with pink sugar. I'm too lazy to make eyes so I used beans... the mouth is made of decorating jell.
Heart shaped baloney sandwiches one big one and two tiny ones.
String cheese and Hot dog skewered with my new pink pony picks
My daughter had this adorable owl plate so I decided to use it too since the heart "bentos" were so small... The eyes are made of raspberry yogurt and a drop of strawberry jelly then sprinkled with pink sugar. The tummy has little apple hearts to match the pattern already on the owl... so cute!!!
The kids loved them although they really didn't want to eat the heart faces and chose to play with them like puppets instead... oh well
