Jack-O-Lantern and Pumpkin Patch bento #627

Jack-O-Lantern is one of my favorites to create every year; it's easy and there are many ways to create the face. I made this one with the cheese inside the sandwich cut to the shape of a pumpkin with the top slice cut to reveal the mild cheddar cheese for the glowing eyes, nose, and cheeky grin.

The other day, I carved half an apple with jack-o-lantern features and today I used nori with a little dab of water to create the face. The pumpkin patch is pumpernickel bread topped with mellowcream pumpkins made with real honey from Brach's. This lunch was packed in his Trudeau fuel Everest sandwich box.

This will be my last Halloween themed bento for this year. I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween, and a great weekend!


In this bento lunch:
  • A Jack-O-Lantern sandwich in a Pumpernickel pumpkin patch.
  • Slices of carrot cut to pumpkin shape.
  • Apple with nori Jack-O-Lantern accents.
  • Two small pumpkin shaped treats.
Here are the supplies or similar that I used to create and pack this lunch.

Spider Bento

I made this lunch sometime last week and Nikolai told me that the spider on his apple sauce freaked him out, lol. This spider is so easy to make, I used a circle cookie cutter, some pretzels sticks for the legs and a couple of icing eyes to complete the face. The other spider on the organic apple sauce is half of a black grape with the other half sliced into thin wedges to make the legs. I love our leak proof Easylunchboxes mini dipper whenever I need to send applesauce or yogurt, they can be used with other lunchboxes as well or on it's own. This spider themed lunch was packed in his Easylunchboxes container.


In this bento lunch:
  • Main compartment: Pumpernickel bread spider, organic apple sauce with black grape spider.
  • Upper right: Organic baby carrots with a spider cupcake ring.
  • Lower right: Green grapes in a spider shaped silicone cup.
Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.

BOO, Ghost croissant bento

Happy Monday! We had a fun weekend at several carnivals as this was the last weekend before Halloween. This simple ghost themed lunch was put together in 5 minutes when I was in a hurry. The croissant was from a French bakery near our home and I love the little delicacies from the store which are made fresh daily from scratch, they are oh, so tasty.

I used an octopus shaped cutter for the ghost BUT you can also use a small tulip cookie cutter, turn it upside down and use a small straw for the features. The croissant fits nicely into our deep and spacious Goodbyn Hero.

In this bento lunch:
  • Main compartment: Croissant topped with a couple of Provolone cheese and a cupcake pick, cotton candy flavored candy corn marshmallows and a GoGo squeeze apple sauce.
  • Top left: Organic baby carrots.
  • Top right: Tangerine with a leaf pick.
Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.
