Back to School Bento

Today was our first day back to school (it's just too hot in August to do anything else), so I thought it would be fun to make a Back to School Bento for the kids.  I didn't make many bentos during our summer break, so it was a lot of fun to get back into the swing of things!
What's in the Box?
Pencil - Rice colored with Turmeric, Jack Cheese, Canadian Bacon, Nori Accents
Steamed Veggies (Broccoli, Peppers, Celery, Carrots, Snap Peas)
Salad Greens, Canadian Bacon
Clementines & Green Grapes 


  1. I love your pencil. So cute!

    1. Sherry, the pencil is white rice steamed with turmeric to get the yellow color. I then hand-formed it into the shape of a pencil using plastic wrap. I covered the tip in a small piece of nori paper, which I also used for the other black accents. The pink eraser is a piece of grilled Canadian bacon that I wrapped around the rice.
