Mummy Loves You!

I've been in a bit of a bento slump this week. I've made lunches of course, I just haven't made them fun. Until today. I saw this super cute & simple idea from Artsy Fartsy Mama - crêpe paper wrapped chocolate bar mummies, and I had to make something like them for my kidlets. So they know their mummy loves them ;)

I used Clif Kid Z bars instead of candy bars and sugar eyes instead of googly eyes. And I didn't have any crêpe paper streamers, so I wrapped my mummy bars in first aid tape. I stopped short of one end, opened it,  and folded it under, for easy access at lunch.

Bella's Mummy Bento is packed in EasyLunchboxes and contains:
  • cucumbers slices with a "trick or treat" pick
  • a sunburst tomato "pumpkin patch" with leaf bento picks
  • cocktail tomatoes (she really loves tomatoes) in spider cups
  • the mummified organic Clif Kid Z bar
  • tucked beneath the mummy bar, a mozzarella string cheese
  • some spider cocktail picks, trimmed in length
  • & a Lunchbox Love note with a mummy joke :)

So, what DID the mummy say to the detective?
Let's wrap this up!

Some stuff used to make this lunch:


  1. Oh my goodness! I love the mummy I have gotten away from making cute fun lunches and I know that my kids miss it. Since we already had trick-or-treat on Saturday and the school party was on Friday, I'm thinking that Halloween will feel a little "empty" this week. I've decided this is the perfect time to do another "fun lunch," and I am absolutely stealing the mummy idea!! I also love those little leaf picks! Wish I could get them in time for Wednesday. I think I'll still order though and use them in the future.

    1. Thanks! I'm definitely picking up some white streamers to use next year, be a little quicker than the first aid tape but I do love how it looked anyways. And those leaf picks are great year-round!
