Oldies but Goodies Halloween Bento Lunch

Halloween Oldies but Goodies Bento | OneCraftyThing.com

Now that I’ve been doing bentos for quite a few years now, I find that holidays become a little harder to make bentos — I’ve done lots and lots of different themes and honestly, I start to run out of ideas! So today, I decided to go back to the Oldies but Goodies… ghosts, pumpkins, spiders, they’re all perfect for today’s bento. Plus I found this awesome butternut squash ravioli at Costco which looks adorable as a pumpkin.

In today’s lunch:

Main  Butternut squash ravioli with sprinkles for the face (two circles and a bat sprinkle) and a piece of grape stem for the stem. It has butter sauce at the bottom of the container.
Sides Green grapes covered with marshmallow spiderwebs (melted for 10 seconds in the microwave and pulled apart over the grapes. Black grapes held together with a toothpick for a spider (with candy laces for legs). On the left compartment, the spider “egg sack” is fresh little mozzarella packages. Also, ghost and bat chips.
Also included but not pictured Yogurt and water

Today, I used:

Friday the 13th


Today is Friday the 13th! OOOOOeeeeeeOOOOO! Ok so I did have to explain the whole “Friday the 13th is an unlucky day” to the First Grade Kiddo (Kiddo One, from now on, for the sake of brevity) and she looked still a bit confused so I told her it was also International Chocolate Day (no, really!) and she stopped looking so confused and looked at the Nutella sandwich longingly. 😀

Sandwich Nutella on white bread — we bought the white bread in a pinch and now I have to use it up before it goes bad — don’t judge me on my white bread smothered in fake nut-butter chocolate sauce!
Sides Gummy Letters with two carrot coins (carrots! They’re healthy! If she eats them). The spider is made out of two grapes with a bat sprinkle for pincers and candy string legs (oh boy, I think I went overboard with the sugar today!), sitting on an apple slice.
Extra sides (not pictured) The rest of the apple cut into slices and a stick of string cheese.
