Kyaraben (aka character bento boxes) were the first cute foods I made for my son. I’ve lost count of how many I’ve packed over his elementary school years, but it always brings a smile to my face to put them together.
For this bento box, I’m creating Winnie the Pooh Ufufy Sandwiches. They are just perfect to bring to school or a picnic, to brighten up a blustery day.

Winnie the Pooh Ufufy Sandwiches
- 3 slices wholemeal bread
- Oval cookie cutter (optional)
- 1 slice cheddar cheese
- 1 slice sandwich ham
- 3 olives
- 1 slice chicken ham
- Violet food coloring
- 2 Tbsps cream cheese
All cutting should be done by an adult.
Cut 3 slices of bread into oval shapes using either a cookie cutter or a pair of scissors.
To make Winnie the Pooh, cut the cheddar cheese into an oval shape using either a cookie cutter or a pair of scissors. Cut out a strip of sandwich ham for his tummy. Using a pair of scissors, cut out his ears and legs from cheddar cheese. Use a knife to slice the olive skin. Then use a pair of scissors to cut his eyes, brows, nose, and nose wrinkle from the olives. Assemble everything together. Then dab ketchup onto his cheeks using a toothpick.
To make Piglet, cut chicken ham into an oval shape using either a cookie cutter or a pair of scissors. Cut out a strip of sandwich ham for his tummy. Then use a knife to cut 3 thin and long strips to add to his belly. Using a pair of scissors, cut out ears and nose from sandwich ham and legs from chicken ham. Use a knife to slice olive skin then scissors to cut out Piglet’s eyes and brows from the olives. Assemble everything together. Then dab ketchup onto his cheeks using a toothpick.
To make Eeyore, mix violet food coloring with cream cheese. Using a pair of scissors, cut out his mouth from chicken ham, and his tummy and legs from sandwich ham. Also use scissors to cut his hands and ears out of bread. Spread violet-colored cream cheese on all the bread pieces. Use a knife to slice olive skin, then use scissors to cut out Eeyore’s eyes, brows, and stitches from the olives. Use scissors to cut his hair from wholemeal bread. Assemble everything together.
