Are you sick of Halloween lunches yet? I am too! I’ve got the last few spooky lunches for the year down below. Even though I looooove making Halloween lunches, I’m ready to move on to some normal lunches for the next few weeks.

Monday I made Wyatt this silly vampire bagel lunch. This might be my favorite Halloween lunch I packed this year! He had grapes with an eyeball pick, a couple rice crispy treats that I cut with a small bat cutter, radish slices with another eyeball pick and an “apple pie” flavored bagel that I filled with cream cheese and decorated with some vampire fangs and icing googly eyes. This was packed in our PlanetBox.
I was a little bummed that Wyatt lost the vampire teeth at school when he and his friends were goofing around with them at lunch, but the kid never loses any of our bento stuff, so he deserves a bunch of free passes on this kind of thing.
Augie had this jack-o-lantern lunch, packed in an EasyLunchboxes bento box. In addition to the PB&J sandwich (made with a cutter set similar to this one) he had grapes, carrots and snap peas. I added sprinkles to the face cut-outs on the sandwich to make it look more jack-o-lantern-y.
On Tuesday I kept the lunches really simple and easy. Augie had a lunch I made using my simple bento formula: grapes, butterfly crackers, cucumbers and turkey meatballs.
Wyatt opted for a snacky lunch in our EasyLunchboxes bento box: grapes, salami, butterfly crackers, Laughing Cow cheese, black bean dip, carrots and spicy dilly beans that his Grandma Karen made. The beans are made from my grandma’s recipe and it makes me really happy that he likes them. I packed them in a lidded mini dipper box so the pickle juice wouldn’t get all over everything.
Yesterday was Halloween, so Wyatt got his last spooky lunch of the year: grapes (with a plastic spider), cheese pumpkins, Triscuits, radishes on a skull pick and a spider cup filled with salami and decorated with icing googly eyes. This was packed in a Laptop Lunches box.
Today we were ready for a bit of normalcy, what with the candy hangovers and all. I packed Wyatt radishes, cheese, crackers, apple slices and chicken dumplings from the freezer.
This was packed in a new lunch box we are trying out that just launched today: the EcoLunchboxes Tri Bento. My first impressions are very positive. It’s sturdy, looks good and the clasps are easy to open. It’s a bit large for my kids but you can see that I managed to fill it up pretty well.
Augie also had dumplings, along with apple chunks, carrots and cukes. This was packed in our Lunchbots Trio.
