Bear & Crab at Beach Bento

I made bears chilling by the beach for my boys' lunch last Friday. I've quite a lot of picks that I've never used before, so I dug out some of my collection for the bentos. :P

Bears are made from meat patties, cheese and nori. :)

Pasta is done aglio olio style with garlic and salt. There's also broccoli and carrots in the box.

Crabs are made from sausages, they are very easy to make, I did a tutorial on how to make them at the end of this post. :)

Did this very simple snack for my boys yesterday. Trees are pandan bread cut out with a cutter.

I did a sausage crab tutorial before, this is an even easier version. :)

Cut a cross on sausage before you boil them.

Boil sausages. Next, cut 2 circles from kamaboko (fish cake) using a round cutter. You can also use straw for this.

Attach on the parts using fried pasta. I just fry the pasta in a little oil, so it's crispy.

I used this puncher to punch out nori for the crab's eyes.

Ta-dah, it's done, easy right? :)

Where to get same or similar items seen in today's post:


  1. Love the crabs. The mini slippers so cute too! is that bento pick? super cute

  2. Aaaahhhhh I can't even begin to describe how cute this is! So adorable!

  3. Love this theme! The Bear are so lovely!

  4. Where do you live? I've never seen sausages that little or in that shape... and have no idea what a fish cake is. I know I'm not a 'foodie', but I don't recognize a lot of what you post/eat so I am curious if you live anywhere near me. :)
    This is a cute lunch.

    1. Hi Sarah, I'm fr Singapore. Fish cake is an Asian food, the ones I used are kamaboko, Japanese fish cakes. U can substitute it with cheese. As for the sausages, u can use cocktail sausages too. :)
