Bento Lego

Easy Lego bento

Last week we had an amazing day at Legoland. We try and go every year and we’ve always been blessed with amazing weather. I love experimenting with bento lunches but I only realised after we had got home that a Lego bento picnic would have been fun!

Today I finally got round to it and the children loved it so I thought I would share my easy Lego bento with you.

Easy Lego Bento lunch - the gingerbread house

I already had everything I needed which included a Lego lunch box and small Lego box, egg mould and made picks from plastic toothpicks and small Lego bricks.

First I made a molded Lego brick egg using my own tutorial (my how to make molded eggs tutorial  can be found here). The small Lego box I used molded it perfectly, although I had to use a hair elastic to keep the box closed whilst it cooled.

I also made a Lego brick sandwich which I cut into a square and added round bread circles to the top.

Also squeezed into the lunch box was the small Lego box filled with cheese biscuits, a couple of sausage rolls with a Lego pick holding them together and a Babybel. I added a couple of white chocolate Lego Minifigs as a treat.

I had made some jelly Lego bricks but unfortunately they broke as they came out of the mould. I need to see if there’s an easy way of getting them out as they looked really good!

To finish off our Lego bento lunch the children enjoyed some Lego ice lollies, I picked up the Minifig mould at Legoland and I know we’ll be using it all summer!

This isn’t the first time we’ve had fun with Lego themed food. We’ve also made Lego cupcakes and Lego biscuits which are both really fun to make and popular with my children too!

    My son says: ‘Can we buy that?’
    He’s very jealous and you’ve set me quite a task now!

    This lunch is the coolest! I think you’d have lots of very jealous classmates if your little one took this into school.
