Earth Day Bento

It's Earth Day today. My Earth Day bento was done last Friday though. I used back the same ideas from last year, but presented them in a different way. The reason for recycling my bento idea is in support of Earth Day's message to reduce, reuse and recycle. :P Nay, I lied, the real reason is I really love the bentos I made last year, and could not think of anything better. Click HERE to check out what I did last year. :)

I made 3 kids surrounding the Earth in this bento. The Earth is made from rice, which I coloured using butterfly pea flowers and blanched lettuce. The kids are made from sausage, fish sausage, rice coloured with egg yolk, cheese and nori.

I also packed meat patties, broccoli and strawberries in this bento. This is a big box of 1.2l, so my boys are sharing the food.

I made a fruit version of girl painting a rainbow. The fruits used for the rainbow are strawberries, oranges, pineapples, Kiwi berries and grapes. The girl, paint brush and pail are made using pineapple, grape, strawberry and banana.

My boys and I shared this plate of fruits after our dinner. I gave them a bowl of yoghurt each and they had fun choosing whatever fruits they like to go with.
