In case you miss it, here's an interesting article about "bento art": http://games.yahoo.com/photos/awesome-bento-art-1345583233-slideshow/
My Japanese mother lives with my sister and her family. My sister has two elementary age boys and my mother (their grandmother) packs them a bento box for lunch. The boys have told me that their classmates are envious of their bento lunch since it looks so "cool" and better than their classmates' peanut butter and jam sandwich.
