Today’s guest post is from Diana of Diana Rambles. She’s a work-from-home Midwestern mama of 3 who blogs about bentos, DIY, doll crafts, and food. She hosts a weekly link party on Fridays. Here is part 3 of her Bento Basics Series. You can find the full series here.

Tip: Appeal to your eater. Got a Star Wars or Butterfly lover at home? Use that theme in their lunch. Does your child wear Hello Kitty PJs every night? Get some Hello Kitty cookie cutters & supplies for their lunch.

Tip: Get the kids involved! I have introduced the ease of bento lunches at a birthday party, girl scouts, and play date. I got a variety of cookie cutters out with sandwich fixings & food picks. The kids loved it and gobbled up their lunches. More info here.

Tip: Get ideas from others. There are lots of bento bloggers out there, which means that thousands and thousands of bentos have been posted. No need to be original. Get & share ideas with others. Here are 4 great link bento link parties. Don’t forget tip 3 from part 1~ don’t compares yours to others! Just get ideas!
