Penguin Bento Lunch in a Planetbox!

We received a this awesome lunch box from Planetbox to try out & we love it! We decided to make this fun Penguin Lunch the other day for all of you penguin lovers! I know there are a lot of you and all of these ideas are very simple to make. I bet your kids would love to open up this at school for a fun winter lunch!

Penguin Bento Lunch

2 Pieces of Dark German Wheat Bread
1 Slice of Provolone Cheese
3 Dark Grapes
1 Plum
Penguin Crackers (found at Walmart)
1 Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cup
Edible Eyes & Marshmallow Bits
1 Carrot
2 Raisins
Orange Sprinkles
1 Clementine
Fruit Dip

For the Penguin Sandwich you need to cut around the edges of a piece of bread in the shape of a oval using kitchen scissors. Use that piece as a guide to cut the other piece in the same shape. Use the crust to make wings. Make any sandwich of your choice. We decorated with provolone cheese, raisins, & a carrot….

We came up with these little guys by using dark grapes & filled with fruit dip. We used oranges for the feet & orange sprinkles for the beak. We also cut Jet-Puffed mallowbits in half using a black edible marker to make the pupils for the eyes…

Penguin Treats

We used Penguin crackers found at Walmart….

This is too cute! Love it!
I've made penguins a few ways, including using cream cheese and olives, but I haven't made all of these. Thank you – you've given me some new ideas for my penguin-obsessed kiddo!

Such a cute assortment of penguin themed food. Pinning!
