6 Fall & Halloween Themed Lunch Boxes

1. Fall Leaves themed lunch

PB&J cut into leaf shapes, Maple Leaf cookies from Aldi, apple slices, and yogurt with fall sprinkles.

2. Mummy hot dogs 

Mummy hot dogs, pumpkin spice Cheerios, Halloween Oreos, Halloween pretzels, mandarin oranges and Danimals smoothies (orange creamsicle flavor)

3. English muffin pizzas

And just to show you that not everything goes as planned, here are the lunches my children refused to eat. English muffin pizzas (one with an olive and bacon spider), vampire teeth apple slices, and oranges and tootsie rolls to make pumpkins with an eyeball chocolate.

4. Pumpkin themed lunch boxes 

Ham & Cheese sandwiches cut out with a pumpkin cookies cutter (purchased on Amazon here), Babybel Halloween cheese, pumpkin patch dirt cups, Halloween pretzels and one with raisins and one with pumpkin spice Cheerios.

5. Spookley the Square pumpkin snacks

Graham crackers, green M&Ms, candy eyeballs, and black icing. I made orange icing with vanilla frosting and food coloring.

6. Spider lunch boxes

PB&J with pretzel stick legs, candy eyeballs, Veggie Chips, cheese stick/ Halloween Babybel cheese + grapes and spider rings (purchased at the Dollar Tree)

 

FYI* These lunch boxes are Bentgo lunch boxes and I got them on Groupon!
