So easy a kid can do it… and some Halloween fun thanks to Molly’s Lunch box

About a week ago I entered my Pretty In Pink Awareness Bento into a giveaway contest held by Shannon of Molly’s Lunch Box on her facebook page.  Guess what? I won! She sent me the most awesome box of Halloween lunch making goodies you have ever seen! We received out box on Saturday and my tiny princesses couldn’t wait til Monday to use the items. My youngest insisted I make them Bento dinners that night!

Yesterday both of my tiny princesses requested trying their own hands at preparing their meals Bento style. Who was I to deny that request?

Here are they’re meals which they prepared and photographed themselves.Well, actually I prepared the food, but they arranged it in they’re lunchboxes. I also allowed them to add their own coloring to their yogurts. If you know me at all… that last little detail went very against my OCD habits! ;)
