I’ve come across some really cute ways to spruce up your children’s lunches. I LOVE this Bento Lunchbox Lion Sandwich!

Today’s is an adorable Lion Sandwich (excerpt from SnackPicks)!



  • 1 sandwich of choice
  • 2 pieces of string cheese
  • 1 black jelly bean {substitutions:
    blueberry or half an olive}
  • 1 raisin
  • 2 green peas (fresh or frozen)
  • About 20 Cheez-It Crackers
Step 1: Make your child’s favorite sandwich and then use a glass to cut a circle shape from it
Step 2: Cut out ears from the corners of the remaining outside edge of sandwich and add them to the circle.
Step 3: Use 2 slices of string cheese for the whites of the eyes and then place 2 peas in the center. Use 1 black olive for nose. Slice a raisin into slivers and arrange to form mouth.
Step 4: Arrange crackers around the sandwich to form a mane

  1. That is so cute. I am going to have to do something like this for my little guy. He would be so happy. I made him ladybug cupcakes a couple years ago and he won’t stop asking for them.
