It always makes me feel good to send my kids off to school with something that will make them smile while they’re gone. Fun, healthy bento boxes are a great way to do that.
For the holidays, you can make it even more gratifying, by sprinkling a little Christmas magic into their day.
This one has gingerbread pizzas, ornament tomatoes, snowflake cheese bites, sprinkled blueberries and a decorated snowman marshmallow.
I used cookie cutters to shape the pizza dough for the mini pizzas. For the cheese bites, I sliced a block of cheese in half and used a different shaped cookie cutter to make the snowflakes.
The tomato ornament is an ornament shaped pick that you insert into each tomato as you eat them. (You can purchase them wherever bento box supplies are sold.)
The possibilities are endless!
TIP: Choose your favorite holiday cookie cutter and shape pizzas, cheese, sandwiches and more! Christmas cookies are always a welcome addition too!
