Tangram Bento Box

Sample of an educational card

The tangram is a classic Chinese puzzle that consists of several geometric pieces, called tans, with the ultimate goal of rearranging and combining all the shapes to create fun images. The motivation behind the Tangram Bento Box is to provide children with fun and educational lunches. Each compartment of the bento box is uniquely shaped to resemble a tan and as the child finishes their lunch, they will be able to remove each piece to uncover a special card at the bottom of the box. At the end of each meal, they will be rewarded with an interactive puzzle as they discover new ways to arrange the tans into their favorite animals. A stack of cards would be provided with the bento box, allowing parents to switch the puzzle at the bottom for each meal.
