How to make Under the Sea Bento Lunch box

We officially welcome summer in Dubai.

Mighty sun hiding behind the clouds this morning which makes it a perfect beach weather. Here’s a simple bento lunchbox to welcome summer.

Under The Sea Bento Lunchbox

This is the second bento lunch box I presented at a workshop for a company here in Dubai. The goal was to turn three boring grocery food –  nuggets, sausages & chicken popcorn to something that is more inviting and fun to look at.

Inside our lunchbox :

  • octopus and crab chicken sausage pasta on top of a bed of lettuce
  • olives
  • cheese & bread stars
  • baby carrots & broccoli
  • grapes

Bento tools: crystal food picks and cupcake liners

This is one of the lunchbox I made for a bento workshop I conducted here in Dubai that aims to make the chicken sausage the star of the bento box.

Follow the simple instructions below to create a sausage/hotdog Octopus and Crab.


Next post will be how to make a fun bento lunch box with chicken popcorn. Check out how we created Minions out of chicken nuggets, here.

This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).
