Your preschooler will roar with glee when you serve these wild bento boxes. Turn a hardboiled egg into a lion, then use a slice of salami to make a hippo.

Cut the hard-boiled egg in half, crosswise. Trim a thin slice of the white end of the egg for the eyes.
Cut the cheese into 4 main shapes using flower and round-shaped cookie cutters. Cut 4 small circles with the egg white slice to make the eyes. Cut very small rounds from the black olive to make the pupils. Place on top of the egg whites. Cut two half inch triangles for the lion's nose.
Arrange 2 cheese slices, overlapping slightly for the mane on top of the egg slice. Add the eyes, nose and 2 small sprigs of dill for the whiskers. Add the 2 lion eggs to the tray.
