I have one very tired 3 year old at the moment. This is her second week of pre-school and as much as she loves going, she is also tired and grumpy after each session. To cheer her up at the end of the week I thought I would make her a bento lunch inspired by her favourite Sylvanian friends. She has to have an early lunch for her afternoon sessions so bento is perfect for filling her up and making lunch time fun.
Sylvanian Families bento lunch
My daughter’s favourite Sylvanian, Freya Chocolate Bunny, helped me decide what to include.
There were leaf-shaped sandwiches with leaf-shaped pieces of cheese.
A little pot of humous with some carrot shaped pieces of carrot and a tiny orange.
I added some cherry tomatoes and cut cucumber slices into flower shapes, held in place with some of my favourite bento pics.
For a sweet treat I included some acorn-shaped gingerbread biscuits, made using my favourite gingerbread recipe.
My 3 year old was really happy when she saw her lunch today. I served it on a divided plate and she said “thank you mummy” and gave me a hug when she saw it which definitely made the effort worthwhile 🙂
