Bento days out

Miffy bento lunch

Little Sis loves Miffy so I made a Miffy-inspired bento lunchbox for her today. We spent the day in Oxfordshire as my husband was on a Supercar driving experience. After my children had enjoyed watching him whizzing around the track they were happy to tuck into a fun lunch.

Carrot flowers
Molded Miffy egg
Mini sausages
Egg filled with blueberries
Cucumber sticks
Babybel
Miffy biscuits

two Miffy shaped biscuits

How to make a Miffy bento lunch:

First of all I made special Miffy fairy bread by cutting out a Miffy shape from one piece of bread, making a bread and butter sandwich – my daughter’s favourite – and filling the space with edible sprinkles. It makes for a really pretty sandwich (although I think I will save it for special occasions!).

Miffy fairy breadI wanted to see what else I could make around the Miffy theme so I cut some carrot flowers and made a molded egg in my Miffy egg mold.

Miffy molded eggI used a plastic egg to hold some colourful blueberries, added some mini sausages, cucumber sticks and the Miffy bread cut outs.

Lunch was finished off with some Miffy biscuits, made by Little Sis yesterday.

This Miffy bento lunch was pretty well received from my fussy eating 3 year old. I think this would make a fun Easter themed lunch too so I’m sure Miffy will be making another appearance soon.
