Archery Bento

Archery Bento

This was lunch for my 8 year old nephew on a day that we were out and about. It was packed in an insulated bag with an ice pack. I thought that the pretzel sticks would get soft but he said that they were alright.

Container: ECO Lunchboxes

Background: Orange bell pepper and sugar snap peas

Bow: Green bell pepper

Arrows: Pretzel sticks with Wegmans Fruit Flat details

Target: I mixed the colors with hot rice and packed into the circle cookie cutters then I carefully lifted out the metal rings. I started with the outer rings and worked inward. It was actually easier to make than I expected.

  • Black – ground black sesame seeds
  • Blue – food coloring
  • Red – ketchup
  • Yellow – turmeric

Dairy: Peach yogurt with apple shaped apple slices on top with a sprinkle of cinnamon

    This bento is so cool!!! The design elements are very strong – it could be a sculpture! I am sure our nephew was impressed.

      Thank you so much! I think that he was impressed. He ate the whole thing. I was not thrilled with the photo, lighting was not right and I was in a hurry to get out the door. But I was pleased that the rings worked the way I had imagined.

  2. Wow your nephew is really lucky to be getting such lovely lunchboxes!!! 🙂 xx
