Frankenstein Halloween Lunch

I am so pleased with today’s lunch, it turned out awesome! Relatively simple too but it looks really effective. 

Lunch is packed in the Boon Trunk and I used the gorgeous Frankenstein joke from this free set at Artsyfartsymama.

Mini Frank apple slices with foodoodler accents and eyes, salami stick and corn on the cob.

Strawberries with a Frankenstein cupcake ring, sugar snap peas and grapes with alpha letters. My black food cups are getting quite the workout with these halloween lunches, they match perfectly! 

My favorite part of the lunch! I had in my head a Frankenstein wrap for months now and yesterday I found the green wraps at the supermarket to do it. Inside is roast chicken, carrot and cheese. I added some eyes, foodoodler accents and used nori for his hair. I was going to add some bolts but I don’t like poking too many things into wraps in case my son doesn’t realise they are there so I stuck with just the eyes. It’s a winner though my Son saw it and LOVES it! 
I hope you’ve been inspired to add some halloween into your lunch, it doesn’t have to be hard or complicated. Sometimes simple things look the best!

Vampire Halloween Lunch

It’s Friday here today so the last school lunch of the week. Today I went with a vampire theme as I havnt done that yet and picked up these cute plastic fangs cheap. Lunch is packed in the Fuel Bento.

The lunch is mainly red and black which ties it together without everything being “Halloween”. For his sandwich I just placed some eye picks and vampire teeth to be Dracula and some foodoodler accents. Bat moulded egg and bat cheese with salami sticks complete the first half of lunch. 


For the second half of lunch he has carrot stars, apple with teeth, grapes and strawberries. Plus another of the cute Halloween Lunch Box Jokes from artsyfartsymama.


Happy end of the week, Stay tuned for more spooky lunches next week as we approach Halloween!

Ghost Halloween Bento

Another spooky Halloween Lunch for my boy today, this time it’s a “Ghostly” one!

Lunch today is packed in the Boon Trunk. The other day I found this cute ghost cutter in a baking pack we’ve had for a while now and knew it would be a perfect addition for our halloween lunches. I used it on the sandwich and cheese.

The adorable Halloween Lunch box joke comes in a set and is available for free downloadΒ HereΒ from artsyfartsymama.

Apple slices are one of the first things that gets eaten from my sons lunch each day, I am always asked how I stop my apples from browning and I’m going to let you in on the big secret…NOTHING! The only thing I do is always keep the slices together like this so if there’s any trick that’s it! My son is super fussy and his apple is always eaten so I must be doing something right.

The rest of his lunch was star carrots, salami stick, grapes, ghost cheese slices, babybel cheese and a big fail “Marbled” egg, Next time I will leave it in longer.

Do you ever have lunch flops, Things you wanted to go to plan but just didn’t? This just goes to show that I do too 😊 all in all it came together well and I’m loving making halloween lunches for my son.

Halloween and Car Lunches

Finally October has come around which means that all those cute halloween lunch ideas I’ve seen and thought of all year can be used! 

The Boon Trunk Snack Box was my lunchbox of choice today because it holds a lot more food and is a bit taller too. I had a lot of fun making this one and I think it came out really cute, Mr. Prep is going to love it! 


I’ve been waiting to do these cute Jack o lantern mandarins, it was so easy to add the face with a marker but it looks so effective!


I printed off these Free Halloween Lunch Box Notes and laminated them to include in his lunch:

With his Sandwich I used the funbites cutter and made little letter stacks, alphabet letters are such a cute addition and my son enjoys reading the words. The rest of his lunch was: Bat boiled egg, raisins in yellow tub, babybel cheese monster, bat carrots, Ham Rollups, corn on the cob, black grapes and dried apricots.


All packed up ready to go, I like to write on his banana as well because it gets peeled off and is such a large space to add words and pictures to make it fun.


Master 3’s lunch today is car themed, his favourite thing ever! I packed his in the boon cargo today. 

He has:

Car Boiled Egg, Ham Rollups,Grape  Tomatoes, carrot sticks, sugar snap peas, cucumber and a vege spread car sandwich. 

I’m excited to create more Halloween lunches and my son just loves it and has already asked if we can buy a pumpkin to carve all spooky. It’s not such a celebrated day in Australia but we always do a little something as it’s such a fun time for kids.
