Bento Newbie Contest #3

I am SUPER excited about this next contest!!!! I think you all are going to love the theme this time around!

Bento should be made as if it were FOR a 4 to 6 yr old.
Basically fun, healthy and easy for a child to eat. Kids love yummy & fun looking bento!
Also keep in mind that kids take their lunch to school and can not heat up their meal. So do not pack foods that can not be eaten at room temp! Most all of the bento I post here are for my kids, so that should give you all some idea as to where to go with this theme!
This contest will run for 2 weeks!
~Deadline for entries is Nov 28th~
Bento must contain all food groups
Description must accompany bento entry pic
Name your bento
Must be new to making bento (6 months or less)
Your bento will be judged on the following categories:
~Bento Name Creativity
~Food Groups
~Packing Skill
~Food Combination
You can earn up to 5 points in each of the above categories!
I will be posting pics of the 1st and 2nd place prizes soon!

ok - I am a bento making newbie until the end of the year but I am even more of a clueless newbie re contests!

I am not sure what the contest is about - for a kindergartner? as if for one??

i'm kind of confused too. do we have to make the bento as it would be FOR a kindergartener, or make it kindergarten themed?

Sorry about the confusion! It is to be made as if it were FOR a child/kindergartner. Basically a FUN and healthy bento!

I sent an entry two days ago but don't see it posted. Could it have been lost in the mail? Or am i just impatient, lol.
