Frozen lunch! Do you want to eat a snowman?

Disney's Frozen bento Lunch with cheese Olaf snowman
"Olaf!" Birdie exclaimed as soon as she opened her Yumbox. "He has a carrot nose!" Yes, as soon as I saw the bag of teeny tiny "petite" baby carrots* at the grocery, I knew they would be perfect for an Olaf the Snowman nose.

Disney Frozen Olaf the Snowman bento school lunch in Yumbox
Birdie's preschool lunch is packed in Yumbox and contains:
  • apple slices on a snowflake cupcake pick
  • plain yogurt with a little blue sanding sugar swirled into it, topped with snowflake cupcake sprinkles
  • honeydew melon balls 
  • Kellogg's Disney Frozen fruit snacks in Anna & Elsa packet**
  • Ritz crackers (the last of the limited winter snowflake shaped ones, specially saved for a Frozen lunch)
  • stack of cheese slices & carrot styled as Olaf the snowman 

To make Olaf, I cut a slice of cheese into quarter-sized circles, stacked them, and skewered them on a pair of eyes bento pick. I cut a square of cheese for his tooth and wedged a tiny petite carrot between the tooth and the eyes. Birdie was easily able to pick up the whole stack of cheese by the eyes and pull the slices off the pick to top her crackers with them :)

Some of the stuff I used to make this lunch:

* Grimmway Farms Petite carrots are baby finger sized versions of peeled baby carrots. In case you've heard any not so nice things about bagged baby carrots, here's an informative post from Lisa of 100 Days of Real Food: The Truth About Baby Carrots

** The Kellogg's Disney Frozen fruit snacks had Anna & Elsa on the box but only 6 of the packets in the box of 10 had Anna & Elsa on them. 2 pictured Ariel, Snow White & Cinderella, and 2 pictured Rapunzel, Belle, & Aurora. The fruit snacks in the packets were a mixture of Frozen & other Disney Princess shapes. This has been the case with all the Disney Princess fruit snacks I've purchased, which you might want to keep in mind if buying fruit snacks for goody bags to match a party theme, for example.
