Spooky Food Bento Lunch Idea

What better way to celebrate spooky season than to send your Boos and Ghouls to school with a creepy bento box lunch?! Plus, you can trick their treat by scaring up a costume for their good2grow!
See what Lunches for BB dug up for us when we asked her to make a Boo-tiful spooky food bento kids lunch using Chase from PAW Patrol!

Now for the fruit veggies and fun!

5. Cut a large carrot diagonally and then, using small ghost-shaped cutters, stamp it out and use a straw to cut the eyes and mouth. Place on top of cucumbers cut in fun shapes and add a small mandarin orange.
6. Add some small heirloom tomatoes, fruit sliced or in a ball with cute bento picks to match the theme.
7. For a creepy treat, include gummy eyeballs.

Scare up your good2grow for the final touch!
8. They’ll love seeing their favorite character in costume. For the vampire, just paint on some pointy teeth. Then, using felt or black construction paper make a cape. You can also download and print these custom character masks made just for your tops!

Angie is the cute culinary crafter mom behind Lunches for BB. When her kids began school, she knew she wanted to pack their lunch at home so she made sure they got in all their nutrients and vitamins. Making bento boxes have allowed her fussy eaters to explore and open up more with what they eat. She is so happy to be sharing ideas and helping other parents with their little’s lunches.
