MOCK BENTO BOXES
I started creating mock Bento box lunches for my children about 3 years ago. It's an amazing simple concept and you as well as your children will fall in love with it.It's creative and fun but best of all healthy. You do not need to purchase the $30-$40 Bento boxes. You can create your own. Stop in the nearest dollar store or Walmart and pick up your different size, colorful containers and a nice cooler or insulated lunch box.
It's amazing what you and your children and create.
