HALLOWEEN FOOD IDEAS
Ever since my post a few weeks ago about Fun Ideas for Kids Lunches, I have been patiently planning a fun-filled, “spook-tacular” lunch for my kiddos for Halloween. There are a TON of fun ideas all over the internet, so while my kids are at school, I have been running a test kitchen to see which of these ideas really do turn out like their Pinterest pictures, and which ones are flops. Friends, I am not patient and delicate, so I need ideas that are easy!! And the below ideas are that – easy & CUTE!!
How To Make a Mummy Sandwich:
These are so easy, we make them every year! You just add a spread some tomato sauce onto a piece of bread, cut a few thin slices of mozzarella cheese, and lay them over the sauce, then add a couple of olives for the eyes and cook in a toaster oven for a couple of minutes and they’re DONE!
Here is a Fantastically, Spooky Lunchtime Meal your kiddos will remember:
Pumpkin Quesadillas: Lots of different ways to make this yummy item. We took 2 plain flour tortillas and cut out the pumpkin’s face with a knife. Add a slice of American Cheese and lightly cook it in a pan on the stove on the bottom side. Let it cool for a few minutes, then “cut” the pumpkin shape out with a cookie cutter. We found orange tortillas at the store too, but they were sun-dried tomato flavor and I knew my kids would like the plain better.
Mozzarella Fingers: So simple! Take one mozzarella stick and form it into the shape of a finger. We added cuts for the knuckles and an almond sliver for a fingernail.
Mummy Juice Box: Glue 2 googly eyes to a piece of black paper and glue the paper onto the front of a juice box. Wrap the juice box with white crepe paper until it resembles a wrapped mummy. Don’t forget to leave a place to poke the straw into the box.
Witches Broom: Easiest dessert I could find and a definite hit with my son! Place a plain pretzel stick into the bottom of a peanut butter cup.
Draw a pumpkin face on a cutie orange for a healthy fruit. We also found fun orange & black tortilla chips at the local grocery store too. There are a lot of great Halloween-themed food items that I have seen that you could build a cool lunch with. Top it off with a few Halloween decorations – napkins, plates, signs, and a cute spider made from pipe cleaners.
To adapt this for my school-aged kids, I am going to add a few plastic spiders and eyeball candy, and a fun note that says, ” YOU’VE BEEN BOOED!! Happy Halloween!!!”
This lunch took less than 10 minutes to make and brought such joy to my toddler – he talked about it all day and almost spilled the beans to his big brother and sister. They have to wait unitl October 31st to get this special lunch!
