Halloween Food Ideas

Ever since my post a few weeks ago about Fun Ideas for Kids Lunches, I have been patiently planning a fun-filled, “spook-tacular” lunch for my kiddos for Halloween.  There are a TON of fun ideas all over the internet, so while my kids are at school, I have been running a test kitchen to see which of these ideas really do turn out like their Pinterest pictures, and which ones are flops. Friends, I am not patient and delicate, so I need ideas that are easy!! And the below ideas are that – easy & CUTE!!

Here is a Fantastically, Spooky Lunchtime Meal your kiddos will remember:

Halloween snack Pumpkin Quesadillas: Lots of different ways to make this yummy item. We took 2 plain flour tortillas and cut out the pumpkin’s face with a knife.  Add a slice of American Cheese and lightly cook it in a pan on the stove on the bottom side.  Let it cool for a few minutes, then “cut” the pumpkin shape out with a cookie cutter.  We found orange tortillas at the store too, but they were sun-dried tomato flavor and I knew my kids would like the plain better.

Halloween food Mozzarella Fingers: So simple! Take one mozzarella stick and form it into the shape of a finger.  We added cuts for the knuckles and an almond sliver for a fingernail.

Halloween Snack

Halloween lunch Mummy Juice Box: Glue 2 googly eyes to a piece of black paper and glue the paper onto the front of a juice box.  Wrap the juice box with white crepe paper until it resembles a wrapped mummy.  Don’t forget to leave a place to poke the straw into the box.

Halloween Snack Witches Broom: Easiest dessert I could find and a definite hit with my son!  Place a plain pretzel stick into the bottom of a peanut butter cup.

Halloween Food

Draw a pumpkin face on a cutie orange for a healthy fruit.  We also found fun orange & black tortilla chips at the local grocery store too.  There are a lot of  great Halloween-themed food items that I have seen that you could build a cool lunch with.  Top it off with a few Halloween decorations – napkins, plates, signs, and a cute spider made from pipe cleaners.

To adapt this for my school-aged kids, I am going to add a few plastic spiders and eyeball candy, and a fun note that says, ” YOU’VE BEEN BOOED!! Happy Halloween!!!

Halloween food ideas This lunch took less than 10 minutes to make and brought such joy to my toddler – he talked about it all day and almost spilled the beans to his big brother and sister.  They have to wait unitl October 31st to get this special lunch!
