This mom makes beautiful bento boxes for her daughter's lunch. I love the smiley unagi stars. What a great way to make lunch fun for kids, I would have gone crazy over this as a child. Since my mom didn't grow up in Japan, we had less designed treats in our lunch. But she always would wrap my milk money (six cents! milk was six cents!) in tin foil and make it into little shapes or sculptures, like a swan. I loved opening the bag to see what shape it was each day. [Thanks Jason]
