Bento Bloggers & Friends are joining together for a creepy, ghostly, fun Halloween hop. We are hopping a little early so that you can get a few ideas for your own Halloween lunches. I am so excited to see all of the BBF Halloween inspired lunch creations. You can start your hop by checking out my Halloween lunches. Then click the jack-o-lantern button to hop on over to the next stop on the hop to see the Halloween lunches that Bento, Monsters has made.
Ten Timid Ghosts by Jennifer O'Connell
ELB lunchbox: goulish meatballs, coconut rice with soy sauce faces, a marshmallow ghost, candy ghost with candy corn, ghostly plum slices, cream cheese and celery ghosts.
Arthur's Halloween by Marc Brown
Arthur has become very afraid of all the spooky Halloween decorations. His little sister does not help him remain calm because she purposely tries to scare him. When Arthur goes trick-or-treating, his little sister disappears into the witch's house at the end of the block. Arthur must face his fear to rescue her. Boogs loves Halloween but has become a bit nervous this year about all of the spooky stuff. He really identified with Arthur in this story. In the Laptop lunchbox: pb&j Arthur sandwich, radish "s", orange jack-o-lantern, cheese tombstone, salad with a witch pick riding on a tomato, and yogurt.
This is one of my favorite Halloween-ish lunches from last year:
The Widow's Broom by Chris Van Allsburg
Chris Van Allsburg is one of my favorite children's authors. His illustrations are gorgeous and his stories make the kiddos think and wonder what really happened without outright telling them. In the lunchbox: turkey & cheese sandWITCH, cheesestick broom, pumpkin marshmallow Peep, grapes, carrots, and orange & black Halloween chips.
Now, click the jack-o-lantern button to hop on over to Bento, Monsters to continue the Bento Bloggers and Friends Halloween Hop.
