Lambs and Chicks for Easter Lunch


This is my quick Healthy Easter idea… On Friday, send your kids to school with a fun, Easter themed lunch.  Here is how ours turned out:

Easter Lunch

I’ve got

  • granola with a sesame seed candy in the lower left compartment.
  • Hard boiled egg chick in the upper left
  • Main compartment contains sandwich (cut into a lamb)
  • Carrots, lettuce, red peppers, and red onions. (all finger veggies, no fork needed)
  • cup of cuties
  • In our Easy Lunch Box
Easter Lunch#2

I saw these little chicks made from your hard boiled eggs on a Google image search for Easter Bentos.  It was super easy to make!

  • Hard boil the eggs
  • peel carefully
  • cut away the white across the center of the egg.
  • I cut out circles from sea weed paper (which I actually always keep on hand for food decorating). and a carrot for the beak!

Love the baby chick idea! We’ve been sending molded hard boiled eggs in our easy lunch boxes. This is a nice way to put the novelty back into a healthy protien.

Kimberly… i’ve sent you like 5 emails about winning the Pine-Sol/book giveaway, but you haven’t responded to any of them. I’m sure my messages are ending up in spam, but I’d love to find a way to get your address so I can mail them to you!!

Adorable Amy! I love how it’s more common now for my kids to take a salad to school daily because I have the right container. I love my bento box!! 🙂
