Flag Bento

Zilla has taken a real interest in preparing his bentos recently. This morning he asked for one to celebrate the 4th of July. We had to work with items we had on hand but I think we did ok. I'm a little worried that the teacher will send home a note about the potato chips (a no-no for bento lunches here) but hopefully he will be able to explain them in a way she'll understand.
The top of the bento has a sandwich (the sandwich top went on when we closed up the bento) with berry jam, yogurt stripes and blueberries cut in half. The bottom of the bento is red tomatoes, white potato chips and blueberries mixed with grapes.
The potato chips are made with potatoes that Zilla's class harvested from the school garden yesterday. We made them in the microwave with a special tray that Grandpa sent. Zilla and Mega love homemade chips!
