My name is Holly and my son is Aaron, I make his bento lunch every day before school. I first discovered bento when I was in high school but had neither the time nor money to really practice it. When my son was around 3 years old I started making him bento occasionally at home and once he started Kindergarten I began making bento lunches for him every day. I’m really enjoying it so far even though my artistic abilities are next to nothing and he seems to really like it too, he is excited about his lunch every day. I use very few bento tools or and decorations. I mainly use cookie cutters, seaweed punches, divider cups and cute decorative toothpicks.
