PlanetBox lunch - space bunnies & carships

Ethan's galactic lunch in our trusty stainless PlanetBox.

PlanetBox cars & bunnies & fruit

In the big section I used the PlanetBox Big Dipper for a cut up orange. The Big Dipper has a nice silicone seal on it that is leak-proof, keeping all the orange juice safely contained away from the other foods. :) I tossed some pomegranate seeds on top and tucked 4 grapes in the corners.

The top section holds a row of Wheat Thin crackers and cheddar cheese cars. The cars sorta look like space ships to me. Ethan dubbed them "carships". ;-)

The top side section has baby carrots and a Little Dipper of ranch dressing. The bottom section holds two pickle spears. The little middle section holds a few organic Annie's Fruit Snack bunnies.

I was concerned the pickles might drip pickle juice into the other spaces, so I covered that one little rectangle up with a small piece of Press n' Seal wrap.

I bought that roll of Press n' Seal when I first started bento-ing, over three years ago!! Since I only use it rarely, and in such small pieces, I expect that thing to to around for at least another three years to come! Ha!

does the press and seal trick work pretty well? I sometimes send sliced orange wedges (less juicy than a fully cutup orange, but still juicy) and I'm wondering if that press and seal tip would work for me.

I am wondering.. Do you often put meat in them or are they mostly veggie type meals? I love your ideas I hope I am that crafty when my munchkins start school

Great idea! Press and Seal...should have thought of that. I have just been using a paper towel or napkin. By the way you got me into Bentos...thanks for the inspiration.
