Shoestring Bento: Snowman

Shoestring Bento: Snowman from bunchesolunches.comHappy December 1st! For today’s Shoestring Bento, I decided to make a simple snowman.

I love Christmas. Like seriously LOVE it. Besides celebrating the birth of Jesus, I love getting together with family and friends, teaching my children about giving and who can forget the music? We have so many traditions (my husband wants me to cut back!) that we love to do. Decorating the tree together, watching Christmas movies with the kids (my favorite is White Christmas!), driving around and looking at the lights. Not to mention all of the amazing food and sweets. I know it’s not for everyone, and that’s okay, but for me, it’s awesome.

To ring in the start of the holiday season I thought about making this simple snowman. He was inspired by Frosty (corncob pipe anyone?).

In this lunch:

Great Harvest Bread Company Honey Whole Wheat Bread
Tillamook Cheese
Pirate Booty
Organic Raisins
Trader Joes Sunflower Seed Butter
Trader Joes Organic Fruit Spread
Organic Carrot
Pretzel Stick
Organic Celery
Trader Joes Yogurt Star
Red Grapes

This lunch was served in Easy Lunch Boxes. The circle cookie cutter used was the Wilton Comfort Grip. The silicone cup is Wilton as well. I used a knife to cut the hat, veggies and grape.

What are some of your holiday traditions?

    Adorable snowman and I love how the pirate booty looks like snow. I like making themed lunches and my nephews are still talking about the first snowman themed lunch we made together for lunch at home. So awesome that you celebrate with your family and include cute food.

      Thank you Kathy! When I made it that’s what I was thinking (about the Pirate Booty), so I’m glad it came across that way. I enjoy it as well, though with this series running into December I’m not going to make as many of them (though I may do a few separate posts of my preschoolers lunches). I love that you make lunches with your nephews. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. This snowman sandwich would be the perfect thing for me to make my little grandson! I love how simple it is, and I already have all the ingredients for it. He’s also crazy about Pirate’s Booty, so I know he would love this for lunch!
