My oldest started kindergarten last week and, since her teacher chose cute circus decorations for their classroom, she asked for a circus lunch for her first day of school. This bento was easy to throw together – especially if you keep meatballs in the freezer for quick meals.
My five year old thought she liked ballet until one fateful night when we tuned in to Rio gymnastics. The pretty girls, sparkly costumes, and jumping on a massive trampoline dance floor convinced her that she IS a gymnast. We went to her first class yesterday, and I’m pretty sure she felt like she was about to medal when she put chalk on her sweet little sweaty palms.
“Once there was a tree, and she loved a little boy.”
Who doesn’t love the Olympics? This has been a fun one for us because our five year old is old enough to enjoy watching with us. She loves the movie Rio, so the fact that these are taking place in Rio is a fun bonus. I decided to make an Olympic-themed bento box to bring some spirit to her lunch.
Here’s what you’ll need…
We have been using a $20 high chair from a certain Scandinavian store. It has a fairly small footprint in my kitchen and is easy to clean, but our baby isn’t a baby anymore; she’s a toddler who wants to sit with us at the table.
A few weeks ago, I was contacted to see if I would review The First Years Helping Hands Feeding set. Since we needed a new seating solution, I thought it’d be a great chance for me to give it a shot.
