Banish boring breakfasts with this crazy cool bento box you can make yourself!


Japanese bento boxes are popping up everywhere these days. And why not? They're a super fun way to tote a meal anywhere!

So we got to thinking: Isn’t it time the Japanese bento lunchbox got a breakfast makeover?

Plastic storage containers or bento-style lunchboxes work well. But it’s easy to make a box yourself, too. For our breakfast bento we used a Trix cereal box – a perfect fit for our breakfast theme (and super easy,too)!

Our breakfast bento is made by filling a cereal box with favorite breakfast picks in rainbowlicious colors -- from Trix Cereal to wildly hued fruits.

Here’s how to make a Rainbow Breakfast Bento Box of your very own!

 

How to make a bento box from a cereal box.

Just cut the front of the box to make a cover that opens and closes, and line the bottom with waxed paper and napkins. Then add colorful bowls, paper liners and cookie cutters to make cute little food cubbies.

Next, gather the goodies. For our rainbow theme, we chose colorful fruit and Trix cereal, but the food choices are totally up to you!

 

Cut fruit with cookie cutters.

Small touches make bento boxes the bomb diggity. Use little cookie cutters to cut decorative shapes from slices of fruit. Separating the Trix cereal by color a great display,too. (Get the kids to help with this fun sorting task.)
