I’ve been having some extra fun with Big Brother’s lunch box this week and packing him some Halloween-themed lunches. There are so many fun things to do with food this time of year. Last year, I rounded up a whole bunch of great Halloween dinner meal ideas. And, we did a whole witch’s potion dinner. So, I decided that this year, we needed some fun Halloween lunches! So, here are links to over 10 awesome Halloween lunch ideas that your kiddos are sure to LOVE!
- Ghost sandwiches
- Halloween muffin tin meal
- Dracula Lunch
- Pumpkin bento lunch
- Frankenstein lunch (+ 5 more ideas!!!)
- Scary face sandwiches
- Bat Sandwiches
- Candy Corn pizza
- Mummy Dogs & Monster Eyes
- Three Witches Snack
So many fun ideas, right?! Here’s some supplies that might help with your Halloween lunches:
We made a sort of jack-o-lantern inspired lunch one day and a funny monster face sandwich. Both were SO easy to do and a hit with the kids! For that jack-o-lantern one, we just went with mini quesadillas and black olives for the faces. Carrot sticks/baby carrots are great because of their orange color. The “eye balls” are cherry tomatoes with some cream cheese & black olives. Then, there’s some Greek yogurt with Halloween sprinkles. Then the funny monster face sandwich is just a hotdog bun sandwich with green olives stuck on with a toothpick for eyes. Then, I put some blue corn tortilla chips around and on top (for ears, or horns, or bat wings, or whatever you’d like them to be). Pickles and tomatoes were goblin fingers & eyes. Then, the pumpkin cookie got a spider stuck in it for good measure. So easy, festive, and fun!
I think just about any kid would LOVE to have a fun Halloween themed lunch in October!
