Bento2015#May05~Japan Children's Day Bento

On 5th May is Japan Children's Day (こどもの日Kodomo no Hi) I make a simple Kintaro boy wears samurai helmet (kabuto) and not forgetting holding the carp (koinobori) ^_^ 

Kintaro boy make of rice mix of ketchup using cling wrap to shape into a ball. Make another smaller ball for the hand. Freehand scissor cut out the nori for hair/eyebrows/eyes and punch out the nose and lip using puncher. Lastly, add the samurai helmet. I follow the tutorial from Youtube :p 

Here is the close up three different carps ^_^ 
  • White rice for white carp
  • White rice plus broccoli on top for green carp
  • Yellow rice (egg yolk mix with rice) for yellow carp
  • Cheese and nori for the details
For side dishes have broccoli, salmon with sweet sauce coating and grapes.

I bought the two tier (Oyako Kingyo) lunch box from Bento & Co for quite some times. It's perfect for today's theme ^_^ Hope you like it!
