Easy to Make Adventure Time Bento Meal
I’m blogging about this Adventure time bento that I made for Z during 1st grade. 🙂
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? 🙂
List of food products used for the Adventure Time bento:
- Gardenia Classic White Bread
- 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. 🙂
