5 Quick, Easy, and Cute Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Lunch Ideas for Kids

Oh oh oh! Christmas is coming to town (and to the lunchbox)! We’ve been amazed by the diverse ways our Teuko Lunchbox Community celebrates. This week, let’s discover 5 ways to include Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at lunchtime!

1. An Easy and Cute Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Sandwich

Here is a very simple but so cute Rudolph sandwich! This very cool lunchbox idea comes from @MarshmallowMama

By simply adding two pretzels for the antlers, small round pieces of Provolone cheese with even smaller rounds of seaweed on top for the eyes, a raspberry as a red nose (it could be a cherry tomato too instead)… Bam! Here is Rudolph! The perfect lunch for having an easy Monday, don’t you think? You could also add, as MarshmallowMama did, Christmas food picks such as the Santa hat on top of the sandwich, red and green colors, with pomegranate seeds and the cucumber-Christmas tree on the side. All this adds Christmas vibes in a very lovely way!

2. Rudolph the Best Cheesy Quesadilla Reindeer

Our second easy, quick, and cute lunchbox idea for kids featuring the most famous reindeer of all, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, was shared with all of us by @ABunchOfLunches!

Rudolph, indeed, is made out of a triangle-shaped quesadilla, on top of which, there are two pretzel antlers, two eye food picks, and a red cherry tomato nose. See, it doesn’t have to be complicated to bring some fun Holiday vibes into our kids’ lunch boxes!

3. Cut Out and Abstract Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer Sandwiches

Indeed, our Teuko Friend @vesperbox_und_co, used, for the first Rudolph sandwich and for the Christmas tree forest, cookie cutters in order to shape the sandwiches. She used food edible pens to draw the eyes and red nose, and a Torune hat food pick for making it cute.

But look at the other side of the bento box! A yule log cake (bûche de Noël) made out of sliced bread and chocolate spread… with some Rudolph looks since there is one big red sprinkle on top of one and antlers cake topper.

Which idea do you prefer here? The Rudolph shaped-sandwich or the abstract Rudolph yule log cake? (on our side, in our Teuko team, we love them both!)

4. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Onigiri Reindeer

This is a beautiful Christmas bento lunchbox idea for kids by our Teuko Friend @silkes_bentoboxes. She molded a triangular, yet rounded, onigiri, with yellow/brown rice. On top of the onigiri, she added small pieces of seaweed for the antlers and for the eyes. She also added two tiny ears made out of cheese (it looks like Provolone cheese or white cheddar), And a round piece of red bell pepper, or cherry tomato, for making Rudolph’s nose.

By just looking at it, we want to play some Christmas Holiday songs on our speakers in the kitchen and sing, while recreating a Rudolph Onigiri:

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows!”

5. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Hot Dog Reindeer

This fantastic lunchbox idea was brought to us by @ArtInLunchbox – and we think that this should become an American Holiday tradition! We particularly love how the soft pretzel sausage bun brings some contrast and texture to make Rudolph, in addition to the pretzel antlers, cheesy eyes, and red cherry tomato nose.

By the way, we all know Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, but what about the other reindeers? Who’s able to remember them all?
