 How to Make a Disney Mickey and Minnie Mouse Food Art Bento Lunch

If your family is like mine, then you are missing Disneyland and Disney World like crazy! We are huge Disney lovers so my kids requested a Disney lunch as they went back to school after the break. I've made Mickey and Minnie Mouse lunches before, but I wanted to make these a little different. With everything going on in our world, I thought I would give these lunches a 2021 tweak.

My kids wear masks at school so why not include those and make it a little more fun? They are part of our everyday lives now so I decided to build them in. To be honest, they were actually easier to make than creating the bottom part of the faces so it even saved me time. I also like to think that Mickey and Minnie are smiling under those masks!

The holidays are the perfect time of year to put together those unique treats that you only make once a year. While I love being creative and making gingerbread houses, I wanted to try something different this year.

How to Make a Grilled Cheese Computer Remote School Lunch

We all know that not only is the world different in 2020 because of a pandemic, but school is vastly different as well. I have one child in full-time traditional school (on a modified schedule), one child who is completely remote, and one who is hybrid (on a modified schedule). Could anyone have predicted how complicated this year would be? I think I have finally accepted that the rest of this school year will probably be changing by the week. Thankfully we have technology so that my kids don't miss school days, even when there is snow this winter. This is why it was time for me to celebrate their remote learning accomplishments with a grilled cheese laptop computer lunch! Learn to make it below. 

How to Make a Grilled Cheese Computer Remote School Lunch

I used to think that my technology knowledge was enough to get through any tech issues. As a dad I can fix anything, right? However, as my oldest has become a teenager I've found myself passing more of our family's tech problems on to her. My kids have grown up being digital natives while I just learned a little about computers as a hobby in my 20's. This is why I'm thankful for ESET and their new free Safer Kids Online guide for parents that help us to keep our kids safe on their many devices.
