A Very Summer Bento – Flip Flip Sandwiches with Watermelon

It’s summertime! My husband and I took the kids to the beach on Friday afternoon for a sunset picnic, and omigoodness, is there anything cuter than tiny feet in flip flops? So I made a flip flop meal for my 3.5 year old:

flip flops bentoFirst, I used a foot-shaped cookie cutter that I don’t even remember where I bought, but I have had it longer than I have been with my husband, so I was very happy to put it to good use! I had to cut each slice of bread and cheese individually and then assemble the sandwiches – when I tried to cut a whole sandwich, it wouldn’t go through well.

I then took two small pieces of carrot (from a carrot salad my husband made this weekend) and cut out a piece of leftover cheese for the top of the flip flop and placed both in the box.

I then cut up some watermelon into star shapes and placed it in one of my new favorite food cups. I then made a couple of fruit kabobs with leftover watermelon stars and grapes, and added 2 cherries to fill up a hole that I had no idea what to do with.

Finally, to cover up the last gap, I added a couple of little sheets of baran. This was actually the part that took me the longest because I couldn’t find a sheet that fit well so I ended up using two small ones.

I can’t wait to see my daughter’s face in the morning when she sees her bento box!
