Tetris Blocks: An Easy Bento Lunchbox
Posted by: Meg In: Lunchbox Ideas
Some bento boxes you see online can be very intimidating! Since I am someone lacking both time and artistic talent, I like to come across bento boxes that seem within my reach of accomplishment. This bento box imitates the popular Tetris video game and seems like a great and cute bento idea that would also be easy to make.
In this version, the bento box creator used a layer of white rice. She then cut geometric shapes out of tomatoes, carrots, yellow pepper and cucumber to create a Tetris video game scene in the lunchbox. The creation is very colorful and healthy when paired with the other bento layer which includes almonds, dried fruit and vegetables.
There are dozens of more video game based bento boxes out there (for instance, search on Flickr). Some of these video game bento lunches get quite complex as you can see at the picture to the right. The great thing about bento creations, though, is you can pick your passion and create unique lunches at any skill level. Even the simplest of bento boxes can be cute and fun to make and eat.
If you have created a bento box you would like me to feature on my site, please contact me and send a picture to share.
