A Herd of Elephant Goodbyn Lunches

The girls got Goodbyns full of elephants today! Byntos for the 3 & 5 year olds Birdie & Sprout, and an original Goodbyn for 9 year old Bella. The Byntos hold just the right amount for the little girls and the lids are easy for them to put back on. The larger Goodbyn is a bit trickier with all it's compartments, it needs to be snapped down in multiple places - Bella can do it though.

   

Birdie is our little pachyderm lover and the reason we have so many elephant food picks :) She asked for a baby elephant peanut butter and Nutella sandwich with candy eyes. Yes, candy eyes.  Many thanks to Ludicrous Mama of Biting the Hand That Feeds You for giving us all her artificially coloured edible decos when her family went dye-free :P And thank you Shannon of Molly's Lunchbox for the baby elephant cookie cutter ♥


Birdie also has cheese bites, red grapes, and a blueberry Minigo yogurt that came home with us from our camping trip in Canada - my cousin must have stowed some in our cooler, for her 1 year old - thanks Steph :) It's a perfect fit in the Bynto! I put a couple of reusable ice shapes next to it to keep it cool.

Sprout also has elephant sandwiches & cheese, but she wanted apples instead of a Minigo, and green grapes too. Both girls have cranberry juice to drink. Sprout's bottle has stickers on it too, on the other side :)


Bella has an elephant Queen peanut butter sandwich - I added a crown cut from the scraps of her little sisters' baby ones. She also has cheese & grapes, plus tomatoes, granola bar, and half a pluot.


Pickle's Lunch Punch Critter Cutter elephant mama has a sleeping baby :)


The new Goodbyn Mix & Match sets are out now, soon Pickle will have one of those, yay!  I do love that colourful little sandwich box we got from Sarah of Zoe's Lunchbox though - she sent Pickle several in different colours ♥

    1. The sleeping one? It's chocolate chip slivers. The others are sugar candy eyes, Wilton sells them with the cake deco stuff.

    2. Before my friend gave me those sugar eyes, I used pieces of maozzarella cut out with a straw, with a chocolate chip sliver in the middle.

    Thanks for posting a link to the critter cutter. I can't wait to elephantize my next sandwich.

    I absolutely LOVE this idea! My daughter likes to have a little bit of everything in her lunch! Where did you find the lunch container that has 5 small compartments in it?? I went to the goodbyn website and only saw the 3 compartment one. Am I not seeing it on their site?

    1. It's the Goodbyn Original, it's not available anymore. I don't know if it's getting updated or is forever discontinued, but it is hard to find now! Sorry :(
