Twinkle loves our dogs. As you all know, we have three beagles named Coffee, Chocnut, and Cookie. Cookie is Coffee and Chocnut’s love puppy and according to Twinkle — it’s “her” dog. That’s how I knew she’s gonna love a Dog-Themed Bento baon.
Good thing I bought this Papa Tomato Ketchup Baon Buddies pack and it comes with this cute lunch box. It’s the perfect lunch box for my dog-themed bento!
WATCH HOW I PREPARED IT
See, it’s pretty easy right? I’m sure your kids are also going to love this! Kaya naman prepare nyo na rin to when school starts again after this Christmas vacation.
OTHER BAON IDEAS
Here are other adorable bento baon ideas you can also do:
Onigiri, or rice balls, are a staple of bento lunches. Shape the rice into small triangles and decorate them to resemble cute puppies. Use nori (seaweed) for ears, black sesame seeds for eyes, and a little piece of carrot or bell pepper for the nose. Don’t forget to make different expressions for each puppy!
Hot Dog Octopus
Turn regular hot dogs into adorable octopuses by slicing them about halfway through and then cutting legs at the bottom. Cook them as you normally would, and when they’re done, the cut sections will curl up, giving them an octopus-like appearance. Serve them with some colorful vegetables or alongside the puppy onigiri.
Paw Print Sandwiches
Make sandwiches and use a paw-shaped cookie cutter to give them a fun dog-themed touch. You can use different types of bread or tortillas to add variety. Fill the sandwiches with your choice of protein, vegetables, and spreads. Consider using cold cuts, lettuce, cucumber, and cream cheese for a delicious combination.
Veggie Dog Bones
Create dog bones using a variety of colorful vegetables. Cut carrots, cucumbers, and celery into bone shapes and arrange them in the bento box. You can add some hummus or other dips for extra flavor. Not only will they look adorable, but they’ll also provide a healthy and satisfying snack.
Animal-Shaped Fruit Salad
No bento lunch is complete without some fruity goodness. Cut watermelon, pineapple, and cantaloupe into fun dog shapes using cookie cutters or a small knife. Supplement with berries or other bite-sized fruits for a colorful and refreshing addition to your meal.
Remember, the key to a great dog-themed bento lunch is creativity and attention to detail. Have fun with different shapes, colors, and textures to bring these dog-inspired ideas to life. Enjoy your adorable and tasty lunch creation!
