We're suckers for bento boxes and, if we're honest, we're also crazy for all things Valentine's Day. So naturally we love nothing more than merging the two! With a few supplies and some creative inspiration, you can become a bento pro and bring a huge smile to your little one this Valentine's Day.
Food picks are a great way to pack up some sweet nothings. Who wouldn't want to open a box, just bursting with love? And hearts. Tons of hearts.
What child wouldn't be delighted by this love bug-themed bento box, created by Karen from Bento-logy? We think your little sweetheart will be buzzing for weeks to come once they've seen this adorable buggy lunch.
Your kids might have some competition when it comes to this grown-up friendly bento idea from Rachel, who blogs over at Following in My Shoes. She's taken the irresistible pizza flavors and cleverly sandwiched them in these homemade hot pockets. (This is just one of the many great bento ideas on her blog.)
Cathy, from 505 Design, certainly has a knack for the small details when it comes to packing a great bento lunch. We love this sweet (no pun intended) love note that she included in her take on Valentine's Day lunch.
If your little one eats lunch at home, why not use your muffin tin as your bento box? Jean, from Bento Days, portioned up some love in these six compartments that give you more than enough space to pack in both nutrition and little displays of affection. Just because they don't go to school doesn't mean they should miss out on the bento fun!
If you need a few little finishing touches to take your Valentine's Day bento box up a notch, check out these adorable strawberry and pretzel Cupid's arrows, dreamed up by Michelle, over at Creative Food.
We're wishing you and your little ones a happy (and tasty!) Valentine's Day.
