Do You Bento?

They fascinate me!

Ok, so when I first started writing on Toddler Times this summer I wrote a post asking parents if making Bento lunches for their kids was worth the time they take to make.

A bunch of months later, I am still insanely fascinated by them and once again considering taking on the time to give them a try.

Maybe get the bento boxes, and give it a try. I have no idea where to even start, but isn’t that what my awesome readers are for?

One of you out there has to be well versed in the art of bento right?

But what really peaked my interest again is the dreaded black hole of productivity called Pinterest. And I never realized how many blogs there are dedicated just to making bentos!

Of course I just had to link up some of the best looking bentos I have seen through this process. Big props to those moms who are creative enough to come up with these ideas, and even write blogs solely based on Bentos!

Do you have a favorite Bento Blog?
