On some days, I do run out of ideas for Dumpling's brekkie. Thankfully for me, she likes cheese and she likes sandwiches. As I am typing this, we are slowly making a change to wholemeal bread so hopefully, this goes down well with her too. :)
So what can you do if all you have in the fridge are cheese and perhaps a slice of ham? Well, you can still have some fun creating something cute...
Dumpling had a laugh in the morning when she saw my choo choo train creation (I made a car on a different day too but that would be for another post)
What about a cartoon character? Just add on some slivers of seaweed and voila! (I did this freehand!)
(Pardon the slightly distorted Pikachu as I had to squeeze him real hard into the compartment! :p)
If your child likes crabsticks, you can also mix that with prawn bits into a seafood sandwich. (I used a sandwich mould for this). I also added a small message using a set of alphabet cutters where I added cheese letters :)
The Bentos are not pretty and picture perfect all the time but with some creativity and a sense of humor, anything can be dressed up :)
