Shark Week! in yubo lunch box :)

Hooray, it be Shark Week! The sproutlets are loving all the shark specials on Discovery Channel this week. And I had grand plans to make shark-themed lunches all week... but don't hold your breath waiting for that to actually happen - especially since I already missed yesterday ;) I did make shark sandwiches for lunch today though! Pictured is 6 year old Sprout's, in her yubo lunchbox:


Sprout's peanut butter sandwich shark looks ready to jump out of a jumbo silicone cup.  Strawberries & carrots fill the rest of the large yubo container. The small containers above hold berry blue gelatin topped with a gummy shark, and greek yogurt tinted blue and topped with shark sprinkles. I bought extra yubo containers so I could pre-fill a bunch and store them in the fridge, ready to grab & go, and I chilled the whole batch of gelatin right in those.

I used a couple of the shark sprinkles to make the shark's eyes,  and cut the mouth out with a tiny triangle cutter, over & over. The open-mouthed shark sandwich design came from this Jaws Bento by Sakurako Kitsa. 

      


Hey hey, how about a Giveaway?

Yubo generously sent me some of their new tall faceplate designs, and offered to set one lucky reader up with a personalized Deluxe Yubo lunch box of their choice! Awesome! These are Birdie & Sprout's new faceplates:


I love the new tall designs! I often find myself packing our yubo lunches in a vertical configuration. One of the things I've always loved about the yubo is that the handles can be attached anywhere along the frame, so it can be carried that way too. They fit nicely in our backpacks when vertical, even when the drink holder is attached. Until recently though, this meant the faceplate design would be sideways too...

 

Not any more! Hooray!


      

How to Enter the Giveaway: 
  1. Visit the yubo website and browse the many designs.
  2. Come back here and leave a comment on THIS POST telling me which design you'd like if you won! 
  3. Click the "I Commented" button in the Rafflecopter widget below. Optional bonus entries can be earned after you've done this.
Easy as 1-2-3 :)

    Not entering since we already have one - but just want to chime in that we LOVE our yubo! It's the most versatile and easy to pack lunchbox we have. My 6-yr old picked the Sharks template and it's definitely not so "kiddy" that he'll grow out of it anytime soon.
