Today I'm sharing a fun tiger themed bento box that I made for Small Child recently when he had a jungle themed dressing up day at school. At first I was utterly stumped for a costume idea, but then we remembered that he has a tiger onesie so that made the dressing up part very easy indeed! Of course I had to come up with some tiger themed food for his lunch to match, and I was really pleased with how it all came out!
In this lunch Small Child had a tiger shaped sandwich on brown bread, filled with ham and cream cheese. I cut the tiger shape out using the CuteZCute Cuddle Palz cutter kit, and decorated it with pieces of Bear yoyo (dried fruit strip) which I cut into shape using the tiger cutter and stuck on with a little honey. I also popped the sandwich onto a couple of lettuce leaves to add to the jungle feel. On the side I packed strips of raw carrot and cucumber, vaguely arranged in stripes and topped with alphabet letter picks spelling out TIGER, a clementine, to which I added stripes using a sharpie and popped into a lettuce shaped silicone cup (the orange peel was obviously discarded so I was happy to use pen on it) and some blueberries, which I topped with a little tiger food pick.
Small Child ate all of his tiger themed lunch, even the lettuce!
