How to Make a Panda Bento Lunch Box
Here's how to make an easy panda bento lunch box using a sandwich, egg flower and apple slices
With a small cookie cutter and some bits of crust, you can turn a standard-issue PB&J or ham and cheese into a panda bear. To make the face, cut a sandwich (with your kid's favorite filling) into a circle. Here's a photo guide on how to seal a sandwich. Cut 2 ovals and 2 small circles out of a separate slice of bread for the eyes and ears. Use small bits of crust for the nose and eyes, and a small carrot curl for the mouth.
Take the leftover crusts and turn them into a yummy snack.
Antichoking warning: Remember to remove toothpicks and cut up blueberries, grapes, carrots and other food for children under 4. See our Antichoking guide for more information.
