Merry Christmas, bento peeps! :) I sincerely hope everyone is having a lovely day!
Awhile back when I was brainstorming Christmas themes for bentos, I came up with the idea to do the 12 days of Christmas. I originally thought I'd start on December 13, and continue until the 25th, Christmas Day, which I assumed was supposed to be the 12th Day of Christmas. I was surprised to find out (after a quick visit with google) that the 12 days of Christmas actually begin on Christmas day! Who knew?!
So today marks the official 1st day of Christmas, in which my true love gave to me, a partridge in a pear tree.
This little snack bento holds a little cheddar cheese partridge in a pear tree. :) That being, a half pear with a tree trunk bento pick. Some Wheat Thin crackers and clementines round out the bottom. The music notes (and partridge hangy doohicky) are fruit leather. Ethan enjoyed this as an after school snack a couple weeks ago. :)
Happy holidays, everyone! :)
