Dino Love & A Bento To Go

Birdie and Sprout wanted peanut butter sandwiches yesterday. Birdie chose a dinosaur cookie cutter and Sprout chose a heart. Birdie then picked out a smaller heart and said her dinosaur wanted some love too :)

I made the sandwiches they wanted and added some cheese and fruit leather hearts too. Birdie's dinosaur got his love :)

The sproutlets & I delivered this bento to a friend's little boy who's the same age as Birdie. He likes vehicles so I went with a transportation theme for him:

I packed him a Sassy box containing:
  • a ham and cheese sandwich train - using a Train Bytes cutter - with carrot slice wheels
  • a cheddar cheese airplane, using a Wilton cookie cutter
  • a hard-cooked egg, made car-shaped with an egg mold
  • green grapes
  • grape tomatoes
  • a celery stick

This little guy's mom likes him to have his crusts, so they went in the bento as tracks - her idea, love it! 

Vote for this lunch!


  1. I can't help but sing the Barney song after looking at those cute dinos! "I love you , you love me..." hehe

  2. You are the best and Jakob loved every bite (except the cherry! He even ate his "track pieces", I am trying to think of other things to use the egg molds for. So far I have come up with using them for rice balls, I am going to try it tomorrow :) I will let you know how they turn out! I did try to put marshmallows in there, but they were too small, maybe I could make home made marshmallows..hmmm!

  3. So cute! I am glad the dinos found love :D And the transportation bento for a friend is so nice!

  4. Love the lunches, so cute!!

  5. I just love the transportation bento! Now I have to buy those train and airplane cutters...dratts! Lol

  6. Just voted for this on Bento Blog Network! Very cute!
