It’s Halloween Bento Week!

27 Oct

I love Halloween.

I mean, dressing up as anyone or anything you want in exchange for free candy and fun treats?

I’m in!

But my favorite part of Halloween has actually become the lunches that I make for Cam.

I think she looks forward to eating them as much as I look forward to making them for her.

Last year I made her a different Halloween themed lunch every day for a week leading up to Halloween.

That went over so well that I’ve decided to do it again.

But before I show you today’s lunch, I wanted to share a few of my favorite Halloween lunches, in case you need some spooky lunch inspiration.

Now, on to today’s slightly spooky lunch.

I found the super cute Halloween pasta at Aldi last week for $1.99 and knew right then that I had to use it in one of Cam’s lunches.

I mixed in a few tomatoes because they reminded me of pumpkins and big yellow moons, and sprinkled Italian seasoning over the top which she suggested could represent graveyard grass.

She also has a banana ghost which is just a banana cut in half with chocolate chip facial features and a cute little hat.

I also used cutters from this set to make apple ghosts. The facial features were cut from the apple’s skin. I used a golden delicious apple which provided the perfect shade of ghostly glow green (say that three times fast).

Come back tomorrow to see what creepy concoction I’ve come up with.
