Car Themed Bentgo Lunch

November has arrived! Halloween is done and dusted and it’s a new week. For today’s Monday lunch I went with a quick car theme in the Bentgo Kids box. 

  
We have polka dot corn (my sons new favorite thing) along with car carrots and cheddar babybel. 

I finally used the Car cutter from the transport set Ive wanted ever since I got into bento. I ended up having to get it from America and even then it’s a hard set to get hold of. But finally it’s in our collection! I used the car on the sandwiches and they fit perfectly in the top section of the bentgo. Aren’t they cute?!

  
I used the car shaped egg mould and discovered it is the perfect fit for the car silicone cups we have. Another thing my son is going to love in this lunch is the apple and grape cars. I saw these on Pinterest ages ago and always wanted to do them, I thought they’d go great with this lunch and they were easy too. He has the rest of the apple in a small container for fruit break. 

  
The end of the year is coming around so quick, it’s getting towards that time to think of Christmas. I don’t know about you but I’m so not organised or ready so I know it will become stressful soon. On the bright side it means Christmas lunches, Yay!

Thomas Yumbox

Today’s lunch is packed in the yumbox panino. I find it easier to work with than the original yumbox. I went with my sons favorite thing ever…Thomas the Tank. 

  

The peas were a huge hit yesterday and he requested them again today. I used the Thomas boiled egg shaper on his egg, it is probably the best egg mould I’ve used the shape always turns out. Train picks in his grapes and a “T” in his babybel.

  

A Thomas theme is a little hard so I used a Train sandwich cutter, added alpha letters and some Thomas baran. 

  

Plus a Banana for fruit break with a little message of course (he loves them) and it was done! 

  
I try to do a train or Thomas lunch occasionally because my son gets so excited, maybe I’ll think of more train ideas by the next one!
