Native American History Bento

Native American Lunch Teepee Up

My 9 year old nephew requested the theme of this bento. He is studying Native American history in school. He specifically requested that I make wampum using garlic bread. I made cheesy garlic bread to help the corn and beans stick to the bread. My 14 year old niece enjoyed following these directions to make the teepee and added her own flare by drawing on the details with food markers.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Arrowheads: Apple slices covered with cinnamon and a little bit of sugar

Feathers: Green pepper

Wampum Belt: French bread slice with some garlic powder, cheese, corn, and black beans – baked in oven until cheese was melted

Teepee: Cheese quesadilla with carrots to hold it up. We followed this tutorial by Rook No. 17.

    Loved your idea! Thanks for supporting the classroom curriculum in a culinary fashion…your creation makes all those close readings about the Iroquois Confederacy easier to swallow! Great to get to meet you at Open House! What a fun and creative aunt you are! I will keep your idea in mind next year during this module.
