Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

Easy Apple & Bear Bento School Lunches AND Easy Lunchboxes Giveaway!

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

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

Bento Teddy Bear Lunch for Kids!

We have made a ton of fun lunches in the past 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!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

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!

We wanted to make super easy bento lunches and came up with these Apple Bento & Bear Bento themed lunches….

We came up with this A is for Apple Lunch last year and thought that would be cute to make the apple sandwich for a back to school lunch. To make this Apple Bento we cut out a circle from our bread (use a round cookie cutter or kitchen scissors) and then snipped off a bit from the top to make a apple shape. Spread peanut butter in the middle. We poked a hole on top and added a gummy worm. Spread strawberry jam/jelly on the outside under and around the worm. We cut off our crust scraps to make a stem. We cut a green grape in half to make a leaf. My boys love apple sauce so I wrote a sweet note making a apple heart on the top. We also added 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.

We made this simple Bear Bento by cutting our 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. You can make any type of sandwich with this. We also used the bread scraps to make the mouth. We cut a dark grape in half to make the nose and cut a raisin in half to make the eyes (use what you have). We also made a bear out of a clementine. 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. We drew the face on with edible black marker. You could use any black marker…they are not going to eat the peel. We also added teddy grahams to complete our Teddy Bear Bento!

  34. 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!

  121. 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.

  122. 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.

  123. I like their 4-Container Set and the bright bags

  124. I like the green lid color as my son is obsessed with green! He gets so excited when I present something new in "his" color!

Making my own with these wonderful compartments that fit amazingly well into a cooler bag would be awesome! Thanks for sharing!!

  178. 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.
