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.
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.
I was not paid to make this post. The opinions and product review mentioned in this post are purely my own. I wrote this post to help other parents looking for creative lunchbox solutions. Content and photos many not be republished without permission.
