School Lunch Ideas: Star Wars, Hello Kitty, & Back to School

If you have been following my blog for any length of time, you know that I LOVE the Laptop Lunch systems.  You'll notice that we have a ton of different bento containers, and although we use them for different purposes, I feel like the Laptop Lunch system is the best fit for our needs.
This week's lunches use a combination of Laptop Lunch and Arctic Zone Ultra containers.
Most of the picks, baran, and other décor items come from  The silicone cups are from grocery stores and World Market.
When packing lunches, it's important that you consider your "wet" and "dry" components and the containers you select for each so that your kids don't find soggy pretzels or crumb-filled applesauce.
These lunches are mostly the same, but the kids have slightly different preferences and allergies, so you may notice some inconsistencies.  It's on purpose.  They are all nut-free.
Lunch 1 - Star Wars & Hello Kitty
Top left: Dried and yogurt covered fruit with a light saber or Hello Kitty pick
