Bento box 'accessories'
I am going to be doing a bento lunch for my new kindergartner. I already have our lunchbox (, but I'm wondering where I can get all of the cute cut-outs, pics, sandwich cutters, etc. to make lunches fun for my little guy (and my DD for at home for the fun of it!). We don't have any stores around here that sell that type of stuff, so I need online stuff. TIA!

For sandwich cutters I am using the big cookie cutters found in Target and Walmart. A lot of stores are actually selling the sandwich cutters cheap right now too - I found some in the $1 store and also some in the dollar section at Target.

For veggie/cheese cutters I am using fondant/mini cookie cutters that you find in stores like JoAnne's or Michaels. They usually have coupons for 40% off of an item and I get on each week. JoAnne's actually had a bunch of them for $.50-$1 last week and I bought a bunch.

The problem Im having is trying to find the cute food picks. I did find some toothpicks at my local grocery store that were plastic and in the shape of swords. My boys will love them.

I'll have to check out Target and Michael's. I wish we had a Joann's! I'm still trying to find the cute picks!

I just placed an order with this company:

Also I found some sandwich cutters and tiny metal cookie cutters at our local dollar store (as well as some cute animal bento-type boxes). You can get the silicone cups at Michaels.

Anyone find a good condiment holder online?

I found this: but I am not sure about the size.

here they say its a 3 pack, but no details about the size either...they say it fits into the box so I would say its not bigger than 2 inches.
