This instructable will teach you how to create a kyaraben style bento box based on the popular video game angry birds.

Bento boxes are a fun way to create a small single portion meal, very common in Japanese cuisine. Kyaraben refers to a specific style of bento that has been elaborately arranged to depict popular characters from anime, comic books or video games characters.

Although time consuming, this bento box was extremely fun to make and considering my son's addiction to angry birds, well worth the effort to see the look on his face when it was finally ready.

I used a variety of mixed veggies that our family enjoys, but you can use whatever suites you own taste.
