PostHeaderIcon First Lunches in Snoopy Bentos

I had found three Snoopy bento boxes on eBay, and ordered them about a month ago. They arrived yesterday, and I absolutely had to make lunches in them! I had originally ordered them with the thought that they would work really well for G3’s snack boxes, or when G1 has a hearty lunch in her Thermos, but today everyone had to have Snoopy! Thankfully, when they all looked at them, they each had a different favorite. Phew!

I also included  Lunchbox Love jokes in plastic sleeves in the girls’ lunches. I need a couple days before I pull out the Christmas Lunchbox Love notes, but those are coming soon. I bought the Holiday Set a while ago, and that has meant that I don’t need to worry about it now.

Snoopy Lunch G1

We had a fun time Monday night watching A Charlie Brown Christmas together as a part of our Family Home Evening. I just love, love, love that show! I also love that my kids can enjoy these “old” tv specials as much as I did as a kid (and still do!).

G1 wanted a filling lunch in her Thermos – gf spaghetti, marinara, and slices of chicken sausage. This meant that it was very easy to fill her Snoopy bento with the last few treats she wanted in her lunch. On the left are some baby carrots and sliced celery in a silicone heart cup, with a homemade Snoopy food pick, and a little blue panda container filled with ranch dressing. At the right, for her dessert, G1 has a chocolate chip gluten-free muffin in a silicone heart cup.

Snoopy Lunch G2

G2 went back to school today after a six day weekend (I want one of those!), so I wanted to put in a little extra effort into her lunch.

At the top left, in her Snoopy bento box, G2 has a gluten-free chocolate chip cheesecake inside a silicone heart cup, with a homemade Snoopy food pick on top. At the right are some slices of Honeycrisp apple (dipped in diluted lemon juice to keep them from browning). I separated the apples from the cheesecake by putting the apples in a small Laptop Lunch Bento Buddies container. In a medium Laptop Lunch Bento Buddies container G2 has three Snoopy and Woodstock provolone & mustard sandwiches on homemade gluten-free bread. I used Snoopy & Woodstock rice molds and food-safe markers to make the details on the little sandwiches.

Snoopy Lunch G3

G3 has a half day today for parent/teacher conferences. As a result, she just needed a filling snack rather than a snack and a lunch. In her Snoopy bento box she has a chocolate chip cheesecake in silicone heart cup, and a homemade Snoopy food pick. In a small Laptop Lunch Bento Buddies container, G3 has some sliced Honeycrisp apple wedges.

As much as I didn’t want to believe the hype, it’s amazing how much my kids loooove the Honeycrisp apples! G3 will eat almost any apple anyhow, but she and G2 simply devour the Honeycrisp apples. G1 still won’t touch apples, but if I only bought things when all three girls liked them, I’d have a much shorter shopping list.
