St. Patrick's Day Bento Lunch

We made this fun St. Patrick’s Day Bento Lunch and my boys really loved this! What’s not to love about a Shamrock PB&J, Rainbow Apple Sauce, & Clover Chips!

St. Patrick’s Day Bento Lunch

2 Pieces of Whole Wheat Bread
Peanut Butter
Apple Jelly
1 Drop of Green Food Coloring
Green Grapes
Spinach Tortilla
Apple Sauce

We started out by cutting a clover shape into a piece of bread using a clover cookie cutter. We spread peanut butter on the other piece of bread. We tinted our apple jelly with 1 drop of green food coloring. We added the cut out piece of bread on top for the green jelly to show through. We preheated our oven to 350. We cut out clover shapes from a spinach tortilla using the clover cookie cutter. Spray the clover cut outs with cooking spray on both sides and bake for about 10 minutes. We drew a cloud with a rainbow and pot of gold on a piece of paper and cut it out. We taped it to the of the apple sauce. We cut green grapes in half and placed them around the sandwich. That’s it!

A fun St. Patrick’s Day lunch for the kids and I bet they will love opening this up at school!:)

Very cute

how adorable! I made a St. Pattys day lunch for my son last year and he loved it!

That is so festive.. Nice and cute.

So cute! My kids would love something like that… 😉

Super cute! :o)

I love how you tinted the apple jelly!!

Super cute! I've love you to link this up at Bento Blog Network, although the St. Patty's theme doesn't start until the 15th!

Really cute!!

I'm wondering how many colors the apple jelly could be colored. If red – use it in Feb. and cut out a heart. Isn't apple jelly kind of yellowish? One could experiment with food coloring on it to see which holidays it could be used for.

Since we see it colors green quite nicely – a Christmas tree cut out in Dec. Thinking, thinking…


Looks awsome!
