Annual Field Trip Lunch- Harry Potter Style

So today was Kidlet's school field trip. This year they went to a local metro park to learn about plants. This of course means that he needed a completely disposable lunch, which of course grinds on me especially when they are teaching about conservation. Phooey. I mean, if they have to carry the lunches there why is it so hard to carry them back?

Anyway, Kidlet and his friends are REALLY in to Harry Potter right now. So much so that he actually asked his Grandma for chores when he went to her house so he could earn money for a wand. Kidlet has never been one to ask for more chores so this is serious love. You can see other Harry Potter lunches I have made here.

Today Kidlet has a cheese sorting hat on top of a soy ham sandwich. On the side are blueberries, strawberry, orange bell pepper, and blackberries.

Here it is closed up. In order to make the bento disposable I used a cherry tomato container. Not thrilled that it probably got trashed instead of recycled but what can you do? Alongside bento Kidlet had a chocolate soy milk and some cheddar bunnies.

And like last year's field trip, Kidlet had to have his paper bag become a little more fancy. This year he got Harry Potter drawn on with colored pencils. Last year he had R2D2.


  1. I'm with you. Actually, I don't really see the reason the kids can't be responsible for bringing their lunchboxes back; my son in fact did carry his back on the bus (!) because he wasn't sure I wanted him to really throw it out! Now that's my boy.
    Super cool Harry Potter theme! I wonder if my kid will get into HP so I can find out what all your characters and symbols mean!

  2. Wow, did you draw that on the bag? Awesome... Oh yeah, and I love the Sorting Hat!

  3. Sugary Flower yes I just drew it on with colored pencils :)

  4. I'm sure your son was thrilled with that cool lunch!

  5. Love what you did on the bag! It's amazing. When I have a chance to pack lunch in a paper bag, I would draw something on it too. However, there is no way I can do such a good job as you did -,- 
