Rice Balls Bento

The kids are still in the holiday, so I arranged a school holiday activity which is bento making. I really wanted to use my new lunch box, so we only made one set of bento for sharing. After brainstorming with the kids and checking what was left in the fridge, we came up with this idea. The kids were enjoying all the process, and gobbled up all the foods in no time :)

Details as below :

Inside this box :
1. A boy hard boiled egg (with spinach for the hair, nori for the eyes, the nose & the mouth, and red crab stick for the rosy cheeks)
2. A girl hard boiled egg (with carrot for the hair, spinach for the hair clips, nori for the eyes & nose, and red crabstick for the mouth)
3. Rose carved carrot and cucumber slices
4. Cheese Kransky sausages
5. Carved apple

And for the three types of rice balls/onigiri, there are :
1. Onigiri with salmon furikake on top
2. Onigiri wrapped with spinach leaf
3. Onigiri decorated with nori and carrot

Similar stuffs I used in this post :

    1. Thanks, Kathy! I love how they turned out too :)

  2. This all looks so amazing! That's awesome that you got the kids involved, mine would love that!

    1. Thanks, Lisa. It was so much fun making bento with the kids. Somehow, that activity increased their appetite too :)
