 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.

Let me say thank you so much to the great people at Super Walmart for the super cute Monsters University DecoPac kit they gave me. I love Super Walmart because I can find  the whole line of Nature’s Own Bread there and other things that aren’t sold in my local grocery stores at a great price.  Where else can you find organic granola bars, fruit, Underoos, toddler snacks & motor oil all under one roof?

I made these bentos for my girls because we are patiently waiting to go see Monsters University which comes to theaters this Friday.  We just watched Monsters, Inc. on Father’s Day (for the 400th time) just as a refresher and because it is one of my all time favorite Disney movies.  This will be Logan’s second time to the movies. Her first time was right before her fourth birthday when we took her to see “Wreck it Ralph”.

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.
