 My children and I absolutely love the work of Chris Van Allsburg because he isn’t just a  wonderful children’s author but a beautiful illustrator also. He’s written famous books like Jumanji, Zathura & Polar Express just to name a few. I thought on his birthday we’d watched the movie Jumanji and I would make them a Jumanji bento for their lunch.  This was my first time using the Egg Cuber and I think my egg came out perfect.  I wanted the egg to look like the dice from the Jumanji game.  My cheeky daughter picked up the egg and counted all the dots and noticed I didn’t put six dots on the bottom of it.  I told her she wasn’t supposed to notice that.

When I was little I use to love this book and now my kids love this book too and the movie probably because they are “Wild Things”.

I made this lunch for my preschooler because she watched a Winnie the Pooh movie at school and was singing the theme song all night long so I thought this would be a cute surprise.  I guess it was a hit because she ate everything and said “my lunch was soooo cute Mama” as soon as I picked her up from school.

I know most of you may be saying to yourselves Ian Fleming, isn’t he the writer of James Bond?  You would be correct, however in 1964 Mr. Fleming also wrote the book Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with the 1968 film loosely adapted of the same name with a screen play by Roald Dahl (James & the Giant Peach, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory) and Ken Hughes.  I love the fact that even though my daughter has seen 10,000 Pixar movies (we are total Disney Dorks) she still loves this movie. I can’t wait till my little ones are older and can sit through a movie so we can watch this one together.
