Make your little pumpkin a special lunch to get them even more excited about Halloween!
Bento box style lunches are super popular right now because you can use up whatever you have available in your fridge and get creative with your ingredients. Grab your Halloween themed cookie cutters and put together an easy and festive lunch with different shaped pieces of bread or tortillas, cheese, lunch meats, fruits, and veggies. Kids love being able to put together their own sandwich or wrap.
These string cheese fingers are super easy to make, and don’t they look real? Use a small pairing knife to carefully cut the “knuckle” marks in a piece of string cheese. Then cut a shallow “nail bed” on one end. Last, cut a small piece of red bell pepper in a nail shape and place it on top.
I’ve colored an orange with an edible food coloring pen to look like a pumpkin. Those can be purchased online or in most craft stores. Or instead – you could opt to “carve” out eyes, a nose, and a mouth on your orange.
My lunch box has some adhesive chalkboard vinyl inside for writing notes. That’s an easy and fun DIY project. You can write a note or funny joke for your child to enjoy…
