Toy Story 3 Bento Muffin Tin Monday

Toy Story 3 has been Pierce's favorite movie for ages now.  There are so many great character choices to use for a cute lunch.
I did star muffin cups (since Woody wears a star as sheriff) filled with grapes (wait, is that an alien in there?!?) and carrots.  The dog, Buster, filled with Ham (the pig) sprinkles (I found Toy Story 3 sprinkles at AC Moore a while back).  Then the sandwich Woody is a cheese sandwich I cut and shaped with food scissors.  The cowboy hat is the sandwich crusts, the smile and eyebrows are pepperoni, the eyes are sliced string cheese.  Pierce also had a side of strawberry yogurt.

Let me tell you - he was so excited for this lunch.  I showed it to him ahead of time at his request, and he couldn't wait to take it to school to show his teachers.  Maybe next time I'll try to do Buzz and Big Baby ;-)

Lisa, the problem here is that no matter how many adorable muffin tins I purchase, my creative juices do NOT run as deep as yours. My kids lunches may get placed in cute containers, but they won't be nearly as AWESOME! You're the bomb! :)

What a fun presentation

Valerie said...

This one takes the cake Lisa! You are SO clever!!! I would not be surprised if Pierce had wanted to keep it forever and never eat it:)

Angela said...

Now that is just too cute Lisa! I love it! I do have a question about it. I'm always wondering with the bentos that people make and send to school how do they keep them to stay in place? I think it would be hard to pack it to keep it all together.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Perfect food for a Bear waiting to go into hibernation.

Speaking of that, is it cool enough for you Bears to start hibernating? It has been dreadfully warm up here. We finally got some snow and cooler weather — that's -28C, or -18 F.

Blessings and Bear hugs.
