Easy Apple & Bear Bento

We created this Bear Bento and Apple Bento Lunch ideas to share with your today and they are SO easy to make!

I have made my boys a ton of fun lunches over the years, but this is the first time we have made Bento themed lunches. We tried out Easy Lunchboxes containers and we absolutely LOVE them! I make my kids lunches every day and have always used what seems to be a billion baggies. I never realized how many baggies I go through until trying these out! My boys love these containers and you can make so many cute themed school lunches that will brighten up their day at school!

Bear Bento Instructions

  • You can make any type of sandwich with this.
  • Cut the bread in a circle. Use the circle as a guide to cut your other piece.
  • Take the crust scraps and roll them up for the ears. Use the bread scraps to make the mouth.
  • Cut a dark grape in half to make the nose and cut a raisin in half to make the eyes (use what you have).
  • For the clementine bear, cut two half small circles using a knife on the top sides. Flip them out to look like ears.
  • Cut off a small slice from the back side. Cut a small circle from that using kitchen scissors to make his nose. Draw the face on with an edible or black marker…they are not going to eat the peel.
  • Add teddy grahams to complete our Teddy Bear Bento!
Apple Bento

Apple Bento Instructions

  • Cut out a circle from the bread (use a round cookie cutter or kitchen scissors) and snip off a bit from the top to make a apple shape.
  • Spread peanut butter in the middle.
  • Poke a hole on top and add a gummy worm.
  • Spread strawberry jam/jelly on the outside under and around the worm.
  • Cut off your crust scraps to make a stem.
  • Cut a green grape in half to make a leaf.
  • Use an applesauce cup and write a sweet note making an apple heart on the top.
  • Add pretzel sticks (apple stems).
  • Serve with apple juice and you have a complete apple themed lunch!
  • You can also add apple slices in place of the apple sauce.

I do not have time to make fun lunches every day so I plan on using these for homemade lunchable type of lunches…using crackers, cheese, and turkey (without all of that processed junk). Also the pizza style lunchables that they have as well (my boys always beg for those and I never want to get them not knowing what is really in it). This is what the Easy Lunchboxes look like and you can also choose from lots of colors for the cooler pack!

  1. I shared your give away on facebook…although I told my friends not to enter because I want to win! LOL

    I love the aqua color bag! What an awesome idea to making my own "lunchables" especially since I don't like the sides that come with the brand especially the ones that include sweeteners. Thanks so much for sharing! Also love that the compartments fit into the bag! My son would love using this at school.

    I like the aqua color bag and what an awesome idea about using it for "lunchables" I love that! My boys love lunchables but I don't like the sides that are included that contain sweeteners. Making my own with these wonderful compartments that fit amazingly well into a cooler bag would be awesome! Thanks for sharing!!

  4. I have 3 sons that have always loved to help me on the kitchen! These would be great for packing school lunches and picnics. Love your blog and all creative ideas!

  5. I absolutely love the purple lunchbox .. purple is one of my favorite colors! Of course my boys would prefer either the green or the black! lol.

  6. I'm loving the green bento boxes! I love bento boxes in general though because they are an awesome way to pack lunches!

  7. I love the container sets, but the green is my favorite lid color. ๐Ÿ™‚ These would be great for my daughter who hates for food to touch.

  8. I would love a lunch box set. My son just started 1st grade and I don't want to use all of the plastic bags and wrappers that comes with a kids lunch.

  9. I'm so excited to use my EasyLunch boxes for my daughter. I love the size of the dividers, and I plan to use cupcake liners to divide the large square if need be. I was just making a list yesterday of possible lunch ideas so I'm organized and ready to go for school next week!

  10. My favorite product is the easy lunchbox! These look awesome! I will definitely have to order these soon!

    My favorite product? The easy lunchbox of course! ๐Ÿ™‚ I like that you get 4 in a set and that the lids are different colors.

    Following you on Pinterest as that is where I first found you. So glad I did as I made the bear sandwich for my 1st grader's lunch. Thank you for the idea!

  13. Amber (bambi64)

    Following Easy Lunch Boxes for sure on Pinterest. have my own little board on there strictly just for kids lunches!

    Love those cooler boxes! I want one for myself and I'm a stay at home mom! Trying to go more green this year for my (4 of them) kids' lunches as we pack every day for school so this entire system would be perfect for us!

  15. Sarah Linkner

    Love the color options because they work for all sorts of kids, on all sorts of days. And, I like that the lids are easy on easy off! I want to win!

  16. These are great containers. My youngest loves anything green. I have wanted to try bento style lunches, but always felt intimidated. I will definitely make the bear themed one this year.

  17. I love the size of their cooler bags! The lunchbox my son had last year strained at the seams if I tried to put a bento-style lunch together, so I used way more baggies than I'd like to admit! Their color choices are great, too… very modern!

    Thanks for the chance! sarayates at gmail dot com

  18. I have one boy that would love the red cooler bag, one that would love the blue one and one that would love the green one! It would be hard to choose! lori at lawrencemonsters dot com

  19. I love the green cooler box! So many lunch sets have horrible, glaring greens, theirs is actually very nice.
