This is my semi-successful attempt at making a scary skull bento. I have to say that they looked much better BEFORE I shoved the shrimp into the box, but oh well.
I made two skulls using rice, marinated seaweed inserted into the mouth and nose cavities, and gummy eyeballs. The reason they are so big is because I was working around the rather lare eyeballs.
I added two panko breaded shrimp into the box because, frankly, I am out of veggie fillers and I couldn't just have a giant rice ball in the box.
I also included two smaller bentos to accompany the larger one. I put one more shrimp and cut up persimmons. Also added a soy sauce container for the rice.
These are far from perfect, but the kids loved them:)
