Beach Bento Babies

Come on, sing with me, Oh I do like to be beside the seaside! Oh I do like to be beside the sea! Oh I do like to stroll along the couscous prom... wait, yes that's right we have sand made from giant couscous and grated cheese!


Featured in this Beach Bento Babies box:

  • Giant couscous
  • Ice cream soft sweet
  • Grated cheese
  • Red Leicester feet (buried in the sand!)
  • Scotch egg crab
  • Macaroni pasta (dyed blue with a few drops of food colouring)
  • Watermelon fruit seahorses
  • Bow pasta fish with a couscous eye
  • Dried pineapple ring and half boiled egg sun

The easiest beach friends to make. Sammy made 2 crabs but one got eaten before we put the box in the fridge! I adore this box so much. Yay! It has a neat band to keep the lid in place. I used food separators to keep the 3 main ingredients from merging into each other. I love how it looks as though the animals are buried in the sand.


For everyone who has tweeted me a photo, it is wonderful seeing your creations. Make sure you link up your pictures here. Bento ideas come from everyone sharing, so link away and I will add them to the Bento Babies Pinterest Board.

I bought all of the ingredients in my local supermarket. Check out your dried fruit aisles, there are lots of interesting products that both children and adults will enjoy.

Happy making!
