I am definitely not a bento box lunch creating Mama. There are so many cute little lunch ideas for kids on Pinterest, but I just stick with a good or PBJ or Turkey Cheese and Cracker and then throw in all their favorites……..apple sauce, cheese-its, fruit, etc. They eat it all up so quick and I don't think my boys would really appreciate the time and effort it takes to make cute lunches.
However, I had seen a lot of super cute ideas on Pinterest for Halloween lunches so I decided to pack a special spooky lunch for the boys today!! It really was so easy to put together and I loved that it was all stuff I already had or stuff I know they will eat!
Mummy Juice boxes (used bandage tape)
Cheese Stick Ghost
This was an original idea of mine!!
I alway put a squeezy pouch in the boys lunches. When I threw it in I realized the cap looked a lot like the neck bolts on Frankenstein. To get another one on the other side, I gave the boys an applesauce for snack and saved the top. I hot glued the top to a puff ball, then I hot glued the puff ball into the bottom part of the applesauce. I just cut out a green piece of paper the size of the applesauce then decorated him with a permanent marker and google eyes!! I love how he turned out!!
Rice Crispy Treat with sprinkles on top
When I picked up Pearson from school, he asked if he could have an even spookier lunch for Thursday. I just love that he loved it!!!
Nash couldn't tell me that he loved it, but I know that he did, because he didn't come home with even a crumb in his lunch box. He loves to eat……it doesn't matter what it looks like!!
It's so fun being these boy's Mama!!
Thanks for their cute Frankenstein shirts, Lolly!!
