Easy to Make Adventure Time Bento Meal


I’m blogging about this Adventure time bento that I made for Z during 1st grade. ๐Ÿ™‚

First day of school is always special. Especially when your kid will go to a new school and you’re just as worried as he is.

So my first-day bento funk is all about one of his favorite cartoon series, Adventure Time. I love to draw inspiration based on the things he likes and from the shows that we watch together.

I usually don’t make bento plans but with this one, I bought Moo chocolate Adventure Time drinks and a pack of cooked ham. I wanted to have a bento book for bento meal planning but I really don’t have time and energy for that.

So I started with Finn the Human’s head — white bread for the headpiece, ham cut into an oval shape for the face, and nori for the eyes and mouth (I used a kawaii puncher from Saizen).

I realized that a backpack was too difficult to make so I just made a sword using bread crusts. I pinned the bread pieces at the back with a food pick.


We had lettuce in the fridge so I used them as fillers or separators to help set the main character.

Since I didn’t plan on anything but Finn, I just took some bread strips leftovers and laid them at the bottom of the small container of the lunch box and put some M&M’s on top. Good thing somebody gave us a pack of chocolates!

The M&M’s colors represent the other characters from the show — Princess Bubblegum, Lumpy Space Princess, Flame Princess, Marceline the Vampire Queen, Ice King, Lady Unicorn, and BMO.

The third partition had fruit roll-ups and slices of cheese. 

What do you think of my Finn bento box? ๐Ÿ™‚

List of food products used for the Adventure Time bento:

  • Gardenia Classic White Bread
  • Lettuce
  • M&M’s chocolates (peanut)
  • Fruit roll-up
  • Eden cheese slices
  • Moo Super Chocolate drink
  • Heng Bing Yaki Sushi Nori Roasted Seaweed
  • Windmill Gourmet Premium Cooked Ham

A few years ago I cooked bacon pancakes for Z because he said it’s Jake the Dog’s favorite. I’ll also be blogging about Jake the Dog bento version in the next few weeks. ๐Ÿ™‚

    i have tools na for bento-making but i havent tried it yet. I really have high regards for moms who do bento because its kind of hard kasi you need active imagination and artistic skills – the latter i surely lack. I tried to make a mickey mouse using rice, it looked like a class c imitation! haha

    Wow super nice! I really want to create fancy bentos like this pero aside from not having enough time in the mornings (my schedule is crazy and unpredictable!), I think masisira lang ang arrangement by the time we arrive at school sa likot ng anak ko hehehe.

    Nice! I only tried making a bento box once and it was during a workshop. None of my kids now bring packed lunch to school anymore. Kudos to all you moms who really take the time to make bento boxes for your kids. It’s not easy! Haha!

    I love making bento for my kiddos. Unfortunately the school has a compulsary lunch program which makes it a bit difficult to do so. hahaha I love this idea for an adventuretime bento… and I think for the blue you can use blue ketchup… the ones that come in crayola ish packaging ๐Ÿ™‚
