This week on Crafty Mom’s Weekly Challenge with The Stir I dove into the world of bento box lunches. It’s a pretty world of beautifully crafted pandas made from rice patties and seaweed and I wanted to see how difficult it would be to incorporate that creativity into my own boxed lunches.
I didn’t think the video was that hard on the bento boxed lunches, but the bento box makers of America got their feathers ruffled a bit. They didn’t want me to discourage other parents from trying these healthy lunches. I found those comments to be strange because I so did NOT discourage packing healthy lunches and also, who cares? What IF the video discouraged someone from trying boxed lunches…how would that affect other bento lunch makers at all?
That being said, it was really cool to see how many women were passionate about this topic, some even offered me tips to make it easier and some had really nice words of support for trying. I think it showed there’s really an awesome support system for people who want to get more involved with this and that one negative comment definitely is not representative of the overall community. Which is a good take away for any craft.
