Bento gingerbread gingerbread house

Gingerbread man bento

Once again I’ve teamed up with some lovely European children’s activities bloggers to co-host a Countdown to Christmas organised by Cerys at Rainy Day Mum. Every Monday for the next three weeks we will have a different prompt to inspire our festive crafting – this week’s theme is recipes. Don’t forget to add your crafty post to the linky at the end of this post!

So this week’s prompt is recipes but I’ve done something a little different and made a gingerbread themed bento box. My children adore bento and I thought it would be fun to make a seasonal lunch for my daughter today.

How to make a Gingerbread man bento:

There’s a gingerbread house-shaped sandwich with chocolate spread.
