EasyLunchboxes Lunch | Honk If You Love Fridays! car bento

This cute little lunch was for my youngest car-fanatic, Tyler.

Tyler attends morning preschool four days a week and is home by lunchtime, so packing a lunchbox is not necessary on most days. But the boy LOVES a lunchbox. So every now and then I try to have a cute lunch waiting for him at the kitchen table, all packed up in a lunchbox, for when he gets home from school. Tyler gets so excited and sports a smile a mile wide as he unzips the lunchbox and lifts the lid of the bento box. His delight is well worth the extra minutes it takes to put a bento together for him. :)

EasyLunchboxes Preschool Lunch - car sandwich, organic Z bar, carrots & cucumbers, fruit salad. Beep beep!
Packed in an EasyLunchbox:
- Car sandwich, this is hummus on seedy multigrain bread, with little cheddar cheese wheels
- the road, an organic Clif Kids Zbar
- spare tires and jack ;) - cucumber slices and baby carrots
- road hazards: kiwi chunks and strawberry pieces, with a cute flag bento pick

Tyler waved that little flag pick around and said, "look mama! it's a sign!". I said "that's called a flag!". To which he then said, "a flag? the flag goes on the castle!".  Coming from a kid who was completely unintelligible a handful of months ago, his words make me so happy. :)
