Boo-tiful Halloween Lunch

It's October and it's my favorite time of the year. Actually, for me, it's starts from Halloween and lasts until New Year with lots of fun activities, foods, gatherings, some travel, the joyous feeling of the festivity, etc. We have so many things planned especially for this year! We also feel that Nikolai is growing up too quickly and we want to spend as much quality time with him as possible. Our family time together is and has been our no 1 priority and now we want to make it even better.

This is my first Halloween bento lunch of this year and I may not be making that many compared to previous years. Not that I don't want to, but I am afraid that I might not be able to blog them in time before Halloween. Anyway you can find my previous years Halloween themed lunches here.

BOO is the first word of the Halloween season and the theme of this lunch. The main compartment of this lunch contains three mini pumpkin shaped sandwiches which I used a small pumpkin cookie cutter to cut out. I used the letter cutters to cut mild cheddar cheese to put on top of these and a couple pieces of string cheese to make the ghosts by first cutting it into half and then making cuts lengthwise for perhaps a little more than half their length and then spreading them apart to give a bit of a spooky look. I simply used a toothpick to make some indentations for the eyes and mouth, but you could also use a food safe marker. I included a piece of granola bar upon which I added letter cookies from IKEA, and in the smaller sections below I have celery sticks and organic baby carrots on the right and a silicone pumpkin shaped cup holding some grapes and a ghost pick. This lunch was packed in an Easylunchboxes container.

Are you ready for Halloween? This past weekend we made a start on our decorating, and believe it or not it actually gave me a start when we arrived home in the evening and the car's headlights  briefly illuminated a scarecrow which I'd temporarily forgotten that I had placed by the front door!
