Re: When bento goes wrong...

My first bento-ish attempt. I worked with what I had and my kids like. I could get some cutters and decorative stuff and make them cuter, that's for sure, but this is just an example of what uncreative moms can do with regular stuff around the house! That also cost about $3.50 in supplies which is enough to make 4 lunches at a time.
I used cut up chicken strip leftovers with brocolli, crackers and grapes. I gave him a small Tupperware snack cup of ranch too. The other one I used the same except he didn't like the chicken so I did PB&J. I only cut off 2 small pcs to get it to fit so not much waste.
Also, it can tip completely upside down and everything stays in place. Silicone cups were from the $1 spot at Target for 12 and the containers are Rubbermaid (yes, I sell Tupperware and still use these... LOL) were about $2.39 on sale at CVS!
