Frightful Fall Blog Hop - Skeletons & Spiders!

I just love Pickle's bones lunch! It's not easy to make the same old peanut butter sandwich & yogurt fun, but I think this is, and I had fun with it:

He has his usual PB sammy, cut with a skeleton & bones cookie cutters, mozzarella string cheese cut up and pierced with an R.I.P. pick, and yogurt topped with a drizzle of strawberry syrup & a scattering of sugar bones, packed in his personalized yubo lunchbox. I even found a skeleton joke Lunchbox Love note in our Hallowe'en volume :)


If you saw my earlier post, did you guess what was wrong with Bella's bento? 


It's not the food... She has blue corn tortilla chips, salsa (made by her friend Paige's mom), cantaloupe, mozzarella string cheese, sunburst tomatoes, & baby carrots. And it's not the theme... She has a bento box full of spiders... 


No, it was that I had forgotten I'd need to put a lid on the salsa! And when I did that, I couldn't close the lid of the Laptop Lunches bento box! But, it was an easy fix, I just needed to do a little swapping around of containers :)

I'm not supposed to make cute lunches for 7th grader Beanstalk anymore. So he just has some stuff he likes: fruit , crackers, & Clif bar. The fact that the colours are Hallowe'eny is purely happy coincidence :)


       

Now hop over to Bento for Kidlet and see what my buddy Jenn managed to scare up for her Kidlet's lunch!

  9. I love the yogurt and bones. LOL! But what I really loved was "I'm not supposed to make cute lunches for 7th grader Beanstalk anymore." -- Just got into that same boat too! I do like the container though that you used for his lunch. I'm going to have to get one of those for my 6th grader. =)

  18. Love all 3! Very fun! I really want to get the skull & bones cookie cutters now!
    Interesting that your 7th grader doesn't want a cute lunch. My 8th grader loves them, and my 10th grader's friends love hers. Teens are funny. I wonder if it's a boy/girl thing?

    1. Don't know... Bella is only 14 months younger than Beanstalk and loves hers and I don't see that ending anytime soon, so maybe.
