Halloween Obentou

This week in Japanese preschool, I'm trying to come up with a cute obento for her lunch on Halloween. For preschool, Japanese moms ALWAYS pack a nutritious and cute obento (packed lunch) for their kiddies, as well as for anyone else who wants one (teenagers, husband, etc). They are supposed to be five colors (aka, kiiro, midori, kuro, shiro) and heavy on the rice. Super moms make きゃらべんとう (character bento) with cutouts and shapes to resemble cute characters from TV anime. Try making your own cute Halloween obento this week and put a sticker on it saying what time you will eat it in Japanese to add to your anticipation (いちじに おべんとうを たべます!)
