frogtastic bento lunch *ribbit!*

"Froggie, what big eyes you have", said Fly.
"The better to see you with", said Froggie.
"Froggie, what a long tongue you have", said Fly.
"The better to eat you with!", said Froggie.

froggie wants a snack!

Tee hee! This was a fun lunch to make. :)
I've been completely and totally inspired by Susan Yuen's bento blog lately. She has a knack for making the most darling creatures come to life with these cute sugar icing eyes!

Froggie here is cheddar cheese and he's detailed with sugar icing eyes and fruit leather tongue. He's about to snack on a fly made out of a raisin with cheese wings. :) Froggie and Fly are chillin' on top of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Reusable silicone barran separates the fly assassination scene from some SunChips in the back.

ribbit! yum

The other sections of the EasyLunchboxes container hold cucumber & a carrot with hummus, and orange slices & blackberries.

The sandwich was sealed using my sandwich press from JList.

Very very cute. As of Thursday we have had a pet frog in the house. My five year old named him "Toad Floater" (because whenever we get a down pour my husband calls it a "turd floater" and Gordon thinks this is hysterical).

I will have to get one of these cookie cutters!!!
