"The Giving Tree" - A Storybook Bento


March is national reading month, so it is about time I did some sort of book themed bento.  On top of that, I recently got a Laptop Lunches bento box and they have been sharing different storybook bentos all month long.  I certainly could not let that opportunity go to waste :)

We just bought "The Giving Tree" a few days ago and have been reading it every night since we got it.  In case you have never read the book I will summarize.  It is a story of a boy and a tree.  The tree loves the boy.  The boy loves to play, climb, swing, eat apples etc. in the tree. But, as the boy gets older he spends less time with tree and comes to visit her only when he needs something.  In the end, the tree gives all of herself to the boy until she is just a stump.



In this lunch:  Broccoli and potato wedges as "The Giving Tree",  chocolate chip stuffed raspberries as the apples, cheese sauce for dipping the broccoli, heart shaped cucumbers to represent the hearts the boy carved into the tree, s'mores goldfish in an apple container (this one is a little bit of a stretch, but in the story the tree gives her trunk for the boy to build a boat with.....boat, ocean, fish...like I said a stretch), stuffed grape leaves with leaf picks because the boy loved to play with the tree's leaves, and a cheese stick which does not tie in with the story at all.

Wow Cup Review and Giveaway


I am always looking out for better products to use.  While watching television with my kids one weekend, this amazing product called a Wow Cup was featured on an infomercial and I NEEDED to try it!!!  In case you did not know, I am also a mom to a busy toddler. He is into everything and makes many a mess including tipped over drink messes.


Features of the Wow Cup include:  360° drinking edge; spill free without any spouts, levers, or buttons; BPA, phthalate, and PVC free; dishwasher safe;  and holds a capacity of 9 oz of liquid.  Wow Cup comes in six colors:  pink cup with blue top, orange cup with green top, purple cup with pink top, blue cup with yellow top, yellow cup with purple top, and green cup with orange top.



Mix and match the different pieces of your Wow Cups for your very own color combination.


What did the little guy think?  He loves it and he finds it extra fun that he is allowed to hold his cup upside down :)  Wow Cup lived up to it's name in all of our testing.  We never experienced a spill from the cup tipping over.  The only time we experienced any liquid escaping the cup is when he held the cup upside down and started banging it on the counter (toddler abuse) and that is to be expected!  We love these cups and I am riding my cabinet of all other sippy cups!!!


Giveaway

Wow Cup has offered to give away one of their spill free cups to a lucky reader.  Winner chooses which color they would like.  This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.  Please enter the giveaway widget below and follow the instructions.  Entries that do not fulfill the requirements will be deleted.

Disclosure - All product opinions are my own and are based on my own use of the product. All product information is from the Wow Cup website or product pamphlet. I received free products in exchange for this review.
