I confess to being a rank amateur in the making of attractive snacks for my kids.
Frankly I’m just not that creative in the culinary arts.
But here are a couple of blogs that make me want to get a gastronomic grip – and maybe figure out where I can get a few hours of spare time too.
Pigs Do Fly – here’s the bento category
Crouching Mother, Hidden Toddler – here are all the things labeled bento
and for those who want to know what sort of storage requirements you might need take a look at this. Sadly, even with a downsized kitchen, this hasn’t put me off the idea of dabbling in making better bento.
I might just wander down to the local source of cookie cutters and give it a whirl. Just don’t expect to see them here – I doubt that my creative urge will manage to get that far.
