Today I did a Hotel Transylvania 2 Bento! I had so much fun being a part of this blog hop with my buddies from the Bento Bloggers and Friends group. I decided to concentrate on Mavis and her batty ways today, so bats is the theme. We can’t wait to see this movie, we loved the first one so much (well, maybe me more than the kids, but I’m a monster lover).
In this lunch:
Main A PB&J Mavis 🙂 For the outlining I used Nutella and for her teeth, two ghost sprinkles tucked into the bread… the bottoms make perfect vampire teeth!
Sides Bats & Ghost veggie chips and green and red grapes. The bat is made with three grapes — one for the body, one for the head and one cut in half for the wings (with triangles cut out to make them look like wings). I held the bat together with toothpicks. For eyes I use blue circle sprinkles, and for teeth, long white jimmies.
Also included but not pictured Applesauce

Hop on over to the next lunch in our hop to see more Hotel Transylvania fun!
Today, I’m part of the Bento Bloggers and Friends Hallowe’en Hop! Halloween is an awesome time for bento makers because of all the fun themes that arise from the season! And today is also special because it’s a two-fer 😉 I made one for my older kiddo to take to school and one for my preschool kiddo to eat at home, because she has very sweetly been asking for “pretty” lunches like her sister. She wants in on the fun too 🙂
The first one is for the older kiddo!
In the bento above:
Main Really, the “main” is three PB&J mini sandwiches shaped like bats! I used these for Halloween last year but love them so much that I brought them back… also, it goes with the “vampire” theme of one of the sides.
Sides Pomegranate seeds for a bloody vampire grin :), green grapes, and a 1/2 pear Frankenstein. His hair and eyebrows are an avocado skin that was well cleaned out (I had avocado for lunch yesterday and kept the peel) and his eyes are pre-made candy eyes. Teeth are just some mandarin skins (I had mandarins, too) I tucked into his mouth. His “bolts” on either side are a bit hard to see but they are also green grapes.
Also Included but not Pictured Yogurt
And for the preschooler, I made a slightly younger version of the above, but with some snacky changes that she would like. This was lunch:
Main 2 bone-shaped peanut butter sandwiches (no jam).
Sides A mandarin (with a jack-o’lantern face drawn on), a 1/2 of a pear Frankenstein (with smaller eyes and avocado hair), a banana ghost with chocolate chip eyes/mouth, six baby carrot sticks.
