I know it’s the day after Halloween but I wanted to get a few more posts in to help give you ideas for next Halloween. Throughout October, I’ve been trying to spice up my daughter’s school lunch since both she and I are getting bored with her lunches. She only eats two kinds of sandwiches, so we get a little limited. I was looking for ways to add a joke or put in some unusual foods to add an element of fun and surprise. Here are some of my ideas and others I found online to make a child’s school lunch more special around Halloween.
Have fun with your Halloween cookie cutters by cutting out sandwiches or even pieces of cheese. I used a pumpkin and skeleton cookie cutter to make these PB & J sandwiches for my daughter. The strawberry jelly makes the eyes look creepy. My daughter, who is 9 years old, loved them!
Aren’t these Cheese Monters adorable from CuteFoodforKids.com?
Finally, Jill over at Meet the Dubiens Blog always has some great lunch idea using bento picks and cookie cutters. She inspired me to buy some Holiday shaped mini cookie cutters so I can get creative with lunches in November and December.
