How to Make an Adorable Rudolph Bento for School Lunch

Dec 19, 2013

This adorable Rudolph bento box would make an adorable school lunch for kids. Your kids could also enjoy this easy lunch at home too! It was really easy to make, and full of delicious, healthy foods. You and your kids are sure to love it! What You'll Need:

  • sandwich (I made a turkey bologna sandwich on whole wheat bread)
  • cherry tomatoes
  • slices of star fruit
  • slices of cucumber pomegranate seeds
  • 2 circles of mozzarella cheese (cut with a knife or small circle cutter)
  • 1 black olive, sliced in half
  • 2 mini pretzel twists
  • 1 lunchbox (I used an EasyLunchbox)


How To Make It:

  1. Place your sandwich in the large sandwich compartment of the lunch box and create Rudolph's face: add the 2 pretzel twists for the antlers, the 2 mozza cheese circles and black olive slices for the eyes, and 1 cherry tomato for the nose.
  2. Fill a second compartment with pomegranate seeds and top with slices of star fruit.
  3. Fill the last compartment with slices of cucumber and baby cherry tomatoes.

Enjoy this fun and yummy lunch!
