After a long, stubborn winter, warm weather never looked so good! Summery items are popping up in every department at Target, and the dollar section has some adorable stuff right now. These flamingo swizzle sticks come in a pack of 8 for $1 and are perfect for fruity drinks, but can pull double duty as bento tools. They’re perfect as picks or skewers, especially if you’re worried about sharp toothpicks in the hands of toddlers.
The plate is the newest version of this line of divided plates that have been coming in a rainbow of colors. The lunchroom-tray look is as adorable as it is functional. Whip up this tropical-themed bento in a matter of minutes thanks to the flamingo skewers and the popular palm tree idea that has been making the Pinterest rounds.
- skewers: honeydew, watermelon, and cantaloupe
- sun: carrot
- palm tree: kiwi, banana, granola
