7 Fast and Easy St. Patrick's Day Bento Box Lunch Ideas for kids that they will love to eat!
Making my daughter's lunch every day has become a very fun and creative process! She loves to see what I come up with, and Always loves it!!!
Now let me show you how I make some fun bento box lunch ideas for kids!
St. Patrick’s Day is always a fun day to celebrate, whether you are Irish or not! Having some Irish ancestry in our blood I feel a special kinship to my fellow brethren and am obliged to drink green beer, decorate, and make as many fun green snacks and foods as I can muster!
7 Fast & Easy St. Patrick's Day Foods you can grab for your kids lunch meal prep:
- Lucky Charms
- Clover/Shamrock Cookies
- Green Grapes
- Edible green grass
- Shamrock/Clover Sandwich: Bread/Deli Meat
- Green Pea Snack crisps
Lucky Charms are perfect for the Bento Box Lunch for St. Patrick's Day! Kids love them and its adorable!
Growing up I was never a fan of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The bread always got soggy, and I hated that. Frankly, I was a bologna girl! LOL What can I say, I like my meat! My girl is the same way, she doesn’t care for PB&J, she’s a deli meat girl too!
Normally she will only eat ham, but lately I’ve been branching out with my “lunch experiments” and she is now loving bologna, and this rotisserie chicken breast I got from Target. It is quite yummy! I even got her eating wheat bread! WHAT???!!!!
Experiment and have fun making your kids lunch, whether it is St. Patrick's Day or any regular day! It will MAKE THEIR DAY! 🙂
Grab your bread, deli meat, or peanut butter/jelly…as you like it: your “Sandwich filling”.
TIP: I usually only use one piece of deli meat for these types of sandwiches. I have tried to “save the excess cutting” and stick into the sandwich, but this often seems to cause it to be too “thick” and it can “bust out of the bread”.
I made that mistake a few weeks ago for Valentine’s Day week- but it looked like a broken heart in a way so it worked out. My kid still loved it which is all that matters! I also add notes and jokes in her lunchbox for a fun surprise. It really makes her happy and I know how hard school can be, so that little dose of love in the middle of her day reminds her how much mommy loves her. 🙂
Press the outer "cutter" down firmly, shimmy it a bit to get it down all the way, remove the excess cuttings.
Press down on the inner “sealer” layer to press and seal the sandwich. Slowly lift off and pop the sandwich out.
These St. Patrick's Day shamrock sandwiches are so easy to make and you can fill them with a lot of options! Be creative!
This was super fast and easy to do as well! I am always rushing and I still take time to put the extra effort into her lunch! It is really not that much work with these easy tools!
UPDATE: My Daughter LOVED the grass! She said it was so good and she LOVED this lunch – she ate it all, except the green pea snack, but I had a feeling about those!
Making a St. Patrick's Day themed bento box kids lunch doesn't have to take a lot of time and effort. But that little effort, goes a long way to bringing smiles and happy tummies home from school every day! 🙂
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you enjoyed seeing some ideas for creating a fun lunch for your kids! My daughter really appreciates the effort I make and she loves to look forward to her lunch to see what I make that day! When I pick her up from school, the first thing she says when she gets in the car is, “Hi, Mom, I loved my lunch! I ate it all!” That makes me SO Happy! Major Mom Win Moment! 🙂
