I created this for my nephew a few days before his 4th birthday. This bento lunch was themed to match the activity we did that day. We went to Hidden Valley Animal Adventure. They have trolley rides where visitors can feed animals such as zebras from a cup.
When I returned my nephew to his parents. They asked him what we did. He said, “I ate a zebra sandwich!”.
Zebra: Peanut butter sandwich cut with a horse cookie cutter. Eye: Wilton candy eye Stripes: Fruit by the foot
Cup: Starburst candy (softened a few seconds in the microwave and then shaped)
Background: celery sticks and snow peas (I know that this was wishful thinking that he would eat it all but I wanted a background)
Striped Cookies: I used these cookies.
