Come One! Come All! The circus is in…our lunch box!
Today’s circus bento was inspired entirely by the cotton candy grape phenomenon – we went to Whole Foods yesterday just to pick some up, and since cotton candy is the kid’s favorite circus treat, it seemed like the perfect theme.

We only attend animal free circuses now, but I have to admit I still love vintage circus imagery. Maybe it’s because my parents took me to an exhibit about circus history as a child – it just seems to have stuck with me. The clown, elephant and dog silhouette picks are from Fred & Friends, The unicycle pick is a from the Etsy shop Thick & Thin Designs. They make custom acrylic food picks – head on over and check them out for more awesomeness!
