Autism Awareness Lunch Punch Giveaway!

Did you know April is National Autism Awareness Month in the United States?

If you follow my blog, you probably already know that my 8 year old, Pickle, has autism, and likes to eat a peanut butter sandwich every day. Today, April 2nd, is World Autism Awareness Day! Pickle's having puzzle pieces made with one of the 4 puzzle shaped sandwich cutters in our Lunch Punch Match & Munch set.
One of my bento blogging friends also made an autism awareness lunch for her kidlets today:
Say it in Blue by Lunches with Love

Pickle can be such a funny kid. Just last Saturday, when I made him a cute sandwich and took a picture of it, he was annoyed, and informed me that my hobby was for school days. But yesterday when I was making his lunch, he told me, "You can be creative if you want. You can take a picture too."
"Oh?" I asked, "How come it's okay today?"
"Because, you like being creative. You're my best mum, I want you to do what you like, so you can have a good time."
I love him ♥

I made him a turtle sandwich. I messed up the face, and the legs (upside down crowns) don't look quite right, but I think it's cute. Kind of small though...


...so I made him another one. When I was making the turtle sandwich, I found a ladybug crawling on one of the pieces of bread (that I'd just cut, so it must have just flown in). Pickle very carefully relocated it to a leaf on his bean plant outside, then lost sight of it and got upset, begging me to get him another ladybug. So while he was eating his turtle, I made him a ladybug sandwich. This time I didn't mess up the face :)


These two are #100 and #101!  I reached my goal! 
I've made 101 different peanut butter sandwiches!

In celebration,  I'm going to give away a set of Lunch Punch Match & Munch puzzle sandwich cutters :)


When I first challenged myself to make 101 different peanut butter sandwiches, Kiersten of The Lunch Punch generously offered to donate any sets I didn't have, to help me achieve my goal ♥

 I already had the puzzle piece shaped Match & Munch set, but when the big box from The Lunch Punch was delivered, there was one in there anyways - and we don't need 2, so I put it aside for Autism Awareness Month, when I planned to share it with one of you! Reaching my sandwich goal just made it an even more perfect time!

How To Enter:

You can get up to 4 chances to win:
  1. Visit my 101 Peanut Butter Sandwiches page to check out all the different sandwiches I've made so far, then come back here and leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite one!
  2. Like The Lunch Punch on Facebook 
  3. Like BentOnBetterLunches on Facebook 
  4. Like World Autism Awareness Day on Facebook
Make sure to leave a separate comment for each item!
The winner will be chosen (by comment # using Random.org) and announced on Saturday, April 7th.  Good luck! And remember, I need a way to contact you if you win, so make sure your comment includes one! Thank you :)

  7. Wow - well done on making 101 pb sandwiches. That is pretty inspiring.
    My youngest (high functioning aspergers) also eats a pb sandwich every day, and she said her favorite was the popsicle, but she likes the Thomas the Tank Engine ones that I make the best :-)
    We love your Blog, and will have to post about our own Bento attempts soon.
