Make a lunch your littles will never be bored with when you feature Curious George! The cheeky little monkey makes a marvelous back-to-school bento box theme, so we asked kid’s lunch queen LunchesforBB to whip up a meal to match Curious George on good2grow, and she went bananas! 

See how she made it below!


Wheat bread 

Ham and mayo (or your preferred sandwich filler)



Pretzel rounds

Mini m&ms 


Cooked spaghetti pasta

Cherry tomatoes 

Curious George Cookie Cutter

Food Coloring Markers

Yumbox Bento Box


1. Roll out bread and cut out using Curious George cookie cutter.

2. Color the stamp with a brown food coloring marker and stamp the sandwich down to create the imprint.

3. Build your sandwich with some mayonnaise and ham or whatever your child likes. Place it on a bed of lettuce in the large section of the bento.

4. Next, cut some small slices of banana, with the peel. Arrange them in a smaller section of the bento box with some pretzel rounds. Peeling and grabbing these little pieces are great for fine motor skills.

5. Steam your broccoli and season to your child’s liking. Place in a smaller compartment to be the base for the cute tomato balloons.

6. To make the balloons, slice 1 cherry tomato in half and place it on top of the broccoli, using 2 small pieces of cooked spaghetti for the balloon string.

7. Top it off with s small treat like mini M&Ms in the small compartment.

8. Pair it with Curious George on good2grow for the cutest kid’s lunch!

Angie is the cute culinary crafter mom behind Lunches for BB. When her kids began school, she knew she wanted to pack their lunch at home so she made sure they got in all their nutrients and vitamins. Making bento boxes have allowed her fussy eaters to explore and open up more with what they eat. She is so happy to be sharing ideas and helping other parents with their little’s lunches.
