10 Bento Box Lunch Ideas for kids that they will love to eat!

I’ve attached some links of the bento boxes I bought from Amazon for my various Bento Box Lunch Ideas. These are the ones I really love the best that wash easy in the dishwasher and work well for our daily lunches! As am Amazon Affiliate I may receive a small commission on purchases (so thank you in advance for clinking on any of my links, which helps support the blog), but I am only recommending the ones I bought and actually use! You can see them in my pics! LOL I will post a review on bento boxes soon too, as I have bought many and returned many! 

Creating new bento box lunch ideas every day has become a very fun part of my day! She loves to see what I come up with, and Always loves it and east it all. That is what makes me the happiest Mom on earth!

Here are some Tips on how to Make your DIY Crustless Sandwich for your Bento Box Lunch Ideas:

Grab your bread, deli meat, or peanut butter/jelly – your “Sandwich filling”, and let’s get started!

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???!!!!

Layer one slice of meat between bread

TIP: I only use one piece of deli meat for these types of sandwiches – too much seems to cause it to be too “thick” and it can “bust out of the seams”!

 I know how hard school can be, so that little dose of love in the middle of the day reminds her how much mommy loves her.

A joke and a love note!

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.
