Simple bento tip #3 - DIY (do it yourself) lunches. This type of lunch is frequently requested at our house and the lunchbox returns home completely empty. Some DIY lunch ideas are: cracker stackers, tacos, sandwiches, and, of course, mini pizzas. Simplicity is the name of the game here.... no assembly required :) Just put the ingredients into smaller containers or silicone cups inside your bento box and you're done.
In this lunch: Baby carrots, marinara sauce with a sprinkle of oregano on top, English muffin (lightly toasted), star shaped pepperoni, mozzarella cheese (I sliced up a cheese stick), and strawberries.
*I added a little more fun and cuteness by dressing the lunch up with Lego containers and accessories.
Everything packed up neatly inside the box with the lids on.
