While I was packing the tomato basket, Bella decorated her paper bag. I think she's actually going to enjoy the novelty of this disposable lunch!
I didn't get creative with her lunch (unless you count the label - which I don't) but here are a few links to some fellow bloggers who did make some cute disposable bentos to go :
The disposable bento Ludicrous Mama of Biting The Hand That Feeds You made for her daughter's field trip to a local Children's Museum was inspired by a book they had just read in her preschool class, My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss.
Shannon of What's For Lunch At Our House has made a few field trip bentos, including this astronaut themed one, and a bear face in a reused take-out box.
Sheri of Happy Little Bento has packed many disposable bentos for her son, and has lots of examples of recycling containers for bento - like this Ponyo bento packed in a recycled bowl and blueberry basket.
Keeley of Keeley McGuire dressed up her daughter's recycled strawberry basket bento with a personalized label, and a Hello Kitty ribbon - which also helped keep the container closed.
How do you pack your kidlets' lunches for field trip days? Does your school request a disposable lunch, or provide a box or bagged lunch?
