What’s in YOUR Bento? Valentine’s Edition…

Valentine’s day is right around the corner and we’ve been filling our bentos with a little extra love this week. Today I’m sharing my Coco’s special Valentine’s snack bento. It was very simple to put together, and she thought it was “So awesome, Mama!”

This layer is simply 2 heart-shaped silicon baking cups filled with fruits and veggies, and the outside spaces were filled in with dried cranberries. Oh, and don’t forget a little love note! bottomlayer*The leaf picks can be found here.

The top layer is all about hearts, and even has a Valentine’s bouquet…topLayerThe sandwich is very simple to assemble…mixinstructionsheartsandwichThat’s it! *A set of little heart-shaped veggie/cheese cutters can be found here. If your child prefers cheese and or meat sandwiches, just use the same size of cutter to cut them that you used for the bread.

Now pack it all together…littlevalentineI made this bento as an after school for Coco so I could enjoy watching her unwrap it…and also so you could watch too!IMG_0252peekingiloveyou

Happy Valentine’s Day,

Arlee, Small Potatoes
