Bento Style Lunches Without The Expensive Kits

Is it possible to make bento style lunches with the expensive kits? I know our girls would
love that style,but we would almost have to buy 4 kits in case a kit was forgotten at school or we had a really busy night.
What works well

Those are great ideas!
I ended up buying several sets of Lunch Box by Rubbermaid and think they will work out really well.

I'm going to just use regular snap tight tupperware type things. I am actually excited for DD to start school soon so I can start using them

Re: Bento Style Lunches Without The Expensive Kits

Since I'm not buying diapers anymore I needed a new kid related hobby/obsession and bento lunches fit the bill. Today I found Gerber mealtime organizers at Target and am really excited to use them. they have 3 compartments and one includes a tightly sealed container that I think would hold soups/sauces.

I'm about to take your obsession into overdrive and I apologize ahead of time for that.

I discovered this sweet mama who does bento lunches for her kids in a very creative way.

What size are these containers? I may be interested in something like that for my dd. Would it fit in a crocodile creek size lunch bag?

'

Here are the Dimensions I found on Target's website: 2.48 " H x 7.72 " W x 8.66 " L

I searched for the crocodile creek lunch bag and if you have the rectangular shaped one it should fit the dimensions for those are 10" x 7.5"
