Welcome back to our weekly Bento lunch recipe series. If this is our first time with us here is a little information to get you started. Each week we are preparing a new lunch idea to share with you to keep your kids lunch full of variety and fun.
If your kids are like mine, they quickly grow tired of the same old peanut butter and jelly sandwich in their school lunch box. By putting together easy ingredients and making them into unique and fun options, your kids will be excited each day to see what you have packed them.
Today I have a 4th of July lunch idea to share with you. This can not only be used as a school lunch but at home during the summer days too. Not to mention that it would be a fun idea for Memorial Day, Labor Day or an All Star Lunch theme.
4th of July Bento Lunch Recipe Instructions:
You can create this fun lunch idea by using red, white and blue items or making simple star sandwiches, cookies and cheese.
- Step One – Make your sandwiches into stars. We made grilled cheese for this lunch but you could make ham and cheese, peanut butter or just about any sandwich.
- Step Two – Make your fruit kabobs by using strawberries, blueberries and white chocolate. Simply, did the end of your strawberries in the white chocolate and add all the fruit to a kabob stick.
- Step Three – Make star shaped sugar cookies, I used refrigerator cookie dough to make this a little quick and easy.
All the of the ingredients that I used in this lunch where items that I had on hand. I love making a new and unique lunch but still being able to use regular ingredients.
- White Chocolate
- Kabob stick
- Sugar Cookies
My boys loved this lunch. They said they felt like super stars when they ate it! I love that!
