Bats, Cats & Witches' Hats

There are only a few more school days until Hallowe'en, so I packed lots of it into today's lunches:

Beanstalk has a Laptop Lunches bento box packed with ham on honey wheat bat sandwiches & a meathead skeleton, heheh. It was once the stick of a lollipop - a gift from my blogger friend who went dye-free (Biting The Hand That Feeds You). He also has apple wedges, cantaloupe chunks, a granola bar, and some chocolate eyeballs.

Pickle took his yubo. He watched me pack it, and in his own words:
"Yes! I love it! Blog this as my best lunch ever!" 
He especially liked the witch hat sprinkle-topped yogurt:

To make the hat shape, I set a mini cookie cutter on top of the yogurt and sprinkled inside it. It'll probably be all messed up by the time he eats lunch but he saw it so that's okay :) I also added a couple of pumpkin cookies and a little cup of peanut butter we brought home from a restaurant (upside down with a sticker on it), for with his snack. He likes to eat it with a spoon.

Bella got a witchy kitty turkey & cheese sandwich in her EasyLunchbox. On the side she has tomatoes, cantaloupe, and some cookies for snack (there are Fig Newtons under the pumpkin cookie). Oh, and a little chocolate bat.

Sprout is dressing up as Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service for Hallowe'en, so I stuck a witch pick in with her strawberries & carrots. In the EasyLunchboxes Mini Dipper (decorated with dry erase marker) she has cheddar cheese. Under the pumpkin cookie and chocolate is an apple juice box.

In the largest section of her Bynto, she has scaredy cat peanut butter sandwiches, stacked, and a witches cauldron filled with star crackers, and a Hallowe'en Lunchbox Love note - they all got one of those.

Oh, I almost forgot! Pickle wanted me to blog a picture of his yubo lunchbox with the Hallowe'en lid on :)

Stuff I used for these lunches:


  1. Very cute and personalized to each kid as always! What brand are the star crackers you have used in some of the recent bentos?

    1. Oh yes, always tailored to each kidlet. Would be soooo much easier if they all liked the same things!

      The stars are Safeway brand crackers, similar to Goldfish, but they are called Starfish - those are sour cream & onion ones.

  2. Super cute stuff. I like how you stickered the peanut butter container. Love the witch pick and little cantaloupe pieces. And I couldn't stand it any more... I just ordered the bat cutter. It'll be here in time for some lunches next week (yay amazon prime) and then I'll pack it away for next year. I've been wanting that one for a while.

    1. I use it beyond Hallowe'en too - think Batman! and the letter B, the colour black etc - your little man will love it!

    2. Oh good point. I knew there was a reason I liked you.

  3. Too too cute! That Kitty with a witchy hat is adorable!

  4. Brilliant as always! LOVE the meathead skeleton! lol! And the witch kitty is adorable! When I first started this journey I really thought that my lunches for my girls would always be different as well, but as it turns out it has been much easier than expected to do them all the same. :)

  5. Super cute! You are so creative. I really like the kitty cats and the the bats! Very nice. :)

    Happy Packing!

  6. soooo cute!!! love all your bentos
