For my Easter/Spring-themed bento, I HAD to have a bunny. But I also wanted to do some kind of hatching chick. Waitaminnit... bunnies must hatch from eggs too, right? Since the Easter Bunny has so many...

It's Spring Break at our drop-off preschool, so no school this day. We didn't technically even need a bento, since
I slept in we didn't go anywhere. But since I make healthier lunches this way, and she's been asking for a "beautiful lunch" for the past few days, I decided to go for it. I chose our EasyLunchboxes because we love them. And I was kind of in a hurry and didn't want to have to dig around in my bin with all the other bento boxes. Plus then trying to figure out how to get everything to fit.
When I made my home-made fruit juice gummies, I used my chocolate box mold to try to make gummy boxes. Success! I put a tiny flower on top from my flowers mold to jazz up the lid, and put jellybean "eggs" inside. The green stuff is flavored sugar powder from a Fun Dip-type valentine candy. The sugar 'dipping stick' is tucked below the sandwich.

I wasn't sure how well my plastic mini butterfly cutter would work, but I've seen other people make cute little carrot butterflies. Turns out, it worked great!
She was very eager to start eating. She kept trying to pull herself up so she could see onto the cutting board while I was trying to take pictures. And kept bumping everything out of place! (Since we were going to be eating it at home, I didn't bother "gluing" anything down.)
She. Ate. The. Whole. Thing! Never before in the history of ever has she eaten every single bite!

my husband does the dishes it's easier to wash one EasyLunchbox than a plate plus bowl, I served myself lunch in one too! And, quite frankly, they won't break if I drop one, which is more likely when trying to juggle a baby and a meal at the same time. Plus, because they're lighter, it's easier to balance one atop a pile of junk on my desk when I'm done hold one.

BentOnBetterLunches' Rainbow Connection link-up has motivated me to try and make at least one 'rainbow meal' every week... We could do a craft instead, but I don't feel like clearing off enough space at the table.
