Ghostly Graveyard bento

The small green skull ring on the tombstone was brought back last year from school by Nikolai and he had asked me to keep it for his next bento. I used a tombstone shaped cutter for the sandwich and letter cutters for the mild cheddar RIP; a second sandwich was shaped with a ghost cutter, I used a slice of mozzarella cheese to which I added three small holes for facial details.
The Jack-O-Lantern face was carved into half of an apple that I thought looked enough like a pumpkin. This lunch is packed in a Laptop Lunches bento box.


In this bento lunch:
  • Tombstone and ghost sandwiches, Jack O Lantern apple and a pumpkin shaped marshmallow.
  • Top right: Cucumber slices
  • Bottom right: Pumpkin spice Greek yogurt with a BOO cupcake pick.
  • Far right: Spoon wrapped in a cloth napkin.
Here are the supplies or similar that I used to create and pack this lunch.

Skull and Crossbones bento

It's been fun making Halloween themed lunches and Nikolai has been enjoying them. I used a skull shaped cookie cutter which revealed the provolone cheese eyes to which I added fruit leather cut with a small circle cutter to give it more of a haunting look. The bones were from mozzarella string cheese, cut in half lengthwise and carved the ends using a small paring knife. This lunch is packed in his Easylunchboxes container.


In this bento lunch:
  • Skull shaped sandwich with mozzarella cheese stick crossbones. Pretzels.
  • Broccoli florets and baby carrots with small ghost pick.
  • Red grapes in a pumpkin shaped silicone cup with a smiling ghost cupcake pick.
Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.

Mummy Tortilla Bento

I have made mummy bentos previously, but instead of using thin strips of cheese as I did before for the bandages, I tried something a bit different this time. I used tortilla to make some roll-ups and then cut another into thin strips to make the bandages. I found that it helps to stick them in place at the ends with just a tiny dab of honey or some other sticky condiments. With the candy eyes added they look as surprised as Nikolai might be.:) This lunch is packed in his Laptop Lunches.


In this bento lunch:
  • A couple of Mummy tortilla roll-ups with candy eyes.
  • Top right: Seedless black grapes with a cute Mummy cupcake ring.
  • Bottom right: Edamame (Eat-a-mummy?) in a spider silicone cup.
  • Far right: Mozzarella string cheese, I used food safe marker for the facial details.
Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.
