I have posted about my obsession with the bento boxes before (Spencer Bento Box Makeover). Until this year, we have used the Spencer Bento Box from Pottery Barn. While I loved that one, it didn't fit a full sandwich, so my daughters have really outgrown it. This year I was looking for something that would fit in a normal lunchbox and leave room for a water bottle and yogurt or applesauce.
I discovered the Green Sprouts Safari line. These are small boxes, but they are exactly what I was looking for…something that would fit a sandwich and most of their lunch while leaving room to add other packaged items and a water bottle.
For my youngest, elephant obsessed child, the pink elephant collection is perfect. We got the Pink Elephant Backpack, Insulated Lunch Bag, and Bento Box.
Green Sprouts Safari Bento Hack – I added chalkboard vinyl to the top of the blue box to create a space for my older daughter's daily lunch box note.
Green Sprouts Safari Friends Bento Box, Pink Elephant (sorry, looks like they are no longer making this box, so I have removed the link) – Fits a crust-less sandwich well. Sandwiches with a crust fit, but it is pretty snug. I use the Sandwich Cutters from Amazon.
