Back to School Tuna Fish Bento Lunch


We were asked by Bumble Bee to great a fun lunch with their tuna & we came up with this fun Fishy Bento Lunch!! This is such fun lunch to make the kids for school & very easy to create.


We were sent lots of different Bumble Bee flavors to choose from. My favorite was the Sundried & Tomatoes with Olive Oil. My husbands favorite is the Jalapenos & Olive Oil...the Chipotle was SO good as well!  I am definitely going to purchase the flavors from now on...love them!  I mix in just a little bit of mayo with the flavored tuna & it's perfect.

However, my boys favorite is the chunk light tuna. If I am using the chunk light tuna I add a little bit of mayo & spicy mustard.  I also add a bit of onion flakes & just a tiny bit of relish.
 We figured...why not make a tuna fish sandwich actually look like fish. So that's just what we did!:)

Fishy Bento Lunch

2 Pieces of Bread
Bumble Bee Tuna 
3 Carrots
1 Pretzel Rod
1 Twizzler String
Gold Fish Crackers
Blue Jell-O
1 Clementine
Heart Sprinkles (optional)

Start out by cutting a piece of bread into a fish shape using kitchen scissors. Use that piece as a guide to cut another piece. Spread your tuna fish in between the slices & place inside a bento container (we like Easy Lunchboxes). Place 2 carrots on the end. Cut the other carrot to look like a fin & lips. We used a pretzel rod on top to look like a fishing pole & tied a Twizzler string around it to look like the fishing line....


We placed Gold Fish Crackers in the top & blue Jell-O in the bottom. We peeled a clementine & pulled off one slice for the back. Place that on top of the Jell-O. We make 3 little fish using heart sprinkles....


This was lots of fun to make & we I bet your kids will have a big smile on their little faces when they open this up at school! #BumbleBee101

Marvin the Martian Watermelon


I put a watermelon in our cart at the grocery store & asked my boys what we could make out of it. We love making fun creations with watermelon & have made a ton of them. My 10 year old suggested Marvin the Martian & I thought that was a fantastic idea!  So...here he is!  We had so much fun making this & it's so easy to do!

Marvin the Martian Watermelon

1 Watermelon (any size)
Dark Grapes
Sliced Pineapple
Toothpicks

Start out by cutting a small piece from the bottom of your watermelon so it will stand up straight. Cut that piece in half & cut around the edges to make the sides of the helmet. Cut a strip on the top & then pull it off. Secure it back on with toothpicks so it's sticking out. Cut the dark grapes in half & press on the front. Cut a piece off of the back of the watermelon & then cut that piece in half. Cut the watermelon off so the white part is showing. Then cut around the edges to look like eyes. Use toothpicks to press the eyes on the front. We cut a dark grape in half for the pupils. 

We pressed in a skewer for the top & attached a watermelon scrap piece on top. Lay pineapple slices on top.  Here is a side view....
