Oz the Great and Powerful Blog Hop

Welcome ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, to the greatest show in Kansas. The Bento Bloggers and Friends are at it again. Come hop along our yellow brick road for day 2 of bento fun to celebrate Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful.

"Kansas is full of good men. I don't want to be a good man, I want to be a great man!" ~ Oz

Oscar the wizard from Kansas, is swept away in his hot air balloon caught in a tornado over the rainbow and into the land of Oz. It is prophesied that he will inherit the wealth of Oz if he can pass the test and kill the wicked witch. 

In this lunch :
  • Peanut butter and jelly on multi-grain wrap pinwheels on green sword picks
  • Half Ham sandwich with cheese tornado, rainbow, and yellow brick road cheese
  • Wicked witch wheat bread
  • Oz magician's hat with fruit leather and cheese on wheat
  • Babybel Glinda's crown
  • Peanut butter and celery Emerald city
  • Watermelon Oz over grapes
"Did those crows just say we're going to die?" ~Finley

I felt my Green monkey needed more food, so I added a China doll at the last minute and some sparkly butterfly snack cakes as a dessert.

New friends will help The Great and Powerful Oz realize his full potential. Finley the flying monkey, the pink creature, and of course munchkins!

In this lunch:
  • Peanut butter and jelly Finley (Flying monkey) Bat cutter + Bear cutter + scraps for the tail and hat
  • Broccoli forest
  • Babybel river faery
  • Munchkin grapes stacked in a fruit roll-up trench coat 
  • Cucumber wicked witch fingers, grabbing OZ 
  • Peanut butter and jelly China doll
 "Oz: [sotto voice, to Glinda] I might not actually be a wizard... Glinda: Yes, but they don't know that."

In my lunch:
  • Mixed greens salad with cauliflower clouds, ham mountains, and broccoli forest
  • Oz and Glinda traveling by bubbles provolone cheese
  • Almonds tornado 
  • Babybel hot air balloon with carrot ropes, black olive Oz, and cucumber basket
  • Sugar snap peas and strawberry poppy field

 Previously I had done some familiar faces from the original Wizard of Oz, you can see that post here based on the book by L. Frank Baum. We watch the movie every year at Thanksgiving.

Now follow our Bento Bloggers & Friends yellow brick road over to Anna over at Becoming a Bentoholic, and move on down the road until you return here, because there's no place like home.

  8. Wow, you've been busy, my dear! and you've done your homework, too! :) Wow - so many lunches and all of them amazing! Love all the action going on in the 1st one, especially.

    1. Thanks! Originally I had a lot more yellow brick road then realized it didn't fit in the box LOL

  9. I am in awe that you did so many GREAT different lunches!

    1. Thanks! I have a tough time making decisions :) HA

  10. Love the tornado, rainbow, yellow brick road. It looks so cool. What a wonderful collection of Oz lunches!

    1. Thanks! I used that award cookie cutter and just trimmed a bit.

  11. Wow, so nice, love your drawings. :)

  12. Those are all amazing! I especially love the creativity of the celery Emerald City and the hodge-podge flying monkey! I hadn't even wondered how it was done, it looked so natural!

    1. Hahah Thanks! I didn't think anyone could even see the little celery door on the front but it was fun. My son thought it was funny all the peanut butter was on the other side. I was worried about my flying monkey a) my son did not want cheese so I had to color the bread and b) I don't have a monkey cutter so I had to use a bear.

  13. Love the celery Emerald City, so clever
