Easy St Patrick's Bento Box Idea

I am not the mom that makes Pinterest worthy, super cute bento box creations for their child's lunches everyday of the week. Up until last week, Kyle primarily bought his lunch at school, but he's actually switched schools in the last week and lunch at the new school is super expensive, so he's now packing a lunch each day.

Even though I'm making school lunches, I have zero intentions of making it super fancy all the time. But a holiday is a fun excuse to go a little bit extra with a lunch right? This St Patrick's themed bento box is super easy to make, and you can easily recreate it to fit your child's preferences. 

I started it off by tossing in one of these super yummy St Patrick's Rice Krispie Treats, and then made a simple sandwich. The only super extra thing I did was buy these letter cookie cutters, and cut a slice of cheese to make the word "lucky" that I placed on top of the sandwich.

For the veggies, I just chopped up a few peppers I had on hand, and tossed in some carrots to make a little rainbow in one of the compartments of our bento box. You could easily do this with whatever fruits and veggies you have on hand that your kids would enjoy. 

Finally, I wanted to make a little pot of gold, so I threw in some goldfish and some golden raisins to pull this off.
