Here’s something to keep the kids entertained.
I’m sure you can relate to the on-going disappointment you’d become accustomed to when opening your school packed lunch. Prepared in the morning whilst they were half awake, your parents just threw in all the usual suspects or anything lying around, sealed it up and sent you on your merry way. And every day you’d open it hoping for something different and were faced with that tired old cheese and ham sandwich and a disinterested carrot stick.
Least I was anyway.
But not so if you’re the son of Heather Sitarzewski, who takes the concept of a creative meal to a whole new level! She creates super cute and fun lunchbox characters for her son – so literally every day is a brand new experience for him. How awesome is that?
In her own words:
I decided this past summer that I wanted to make a fun bento every day for my son’s lunches this school year. I dug around online for a bit to see ideas and found some very fun sites that have recipes and tutorials for how to manipulate food into shapes and patterns that you don’t envision initially when you think about it.
Day one I put together a cute, generic style bento. I knew immediately that I wanted to do Disney characters and other fun imagery. But little did I know, that crazy idea I had during the summer would be received so warmly with my Facebook friends. I started posting them daily there and got so many requests for a place to see them all at once. A book, a blog… a tumblog.
One day a book may be in order. But for now they can all be seen in one place at Lunchbox Awesome.
