1. How To Make a Mummy Sandwich
These are so easy, we make them every year! You just add a spread some tomato sauce onto a piece of bread, cut a few thin slices of mozzarella cheese, and lay them over the sauce, then add a couple of olives for the eyes and cook in a toaster oven for a couple of minutes and they’re DONE! If you love the mummy theme, check out more of our creative Halloween treats.
2. How to Make a Jack-o-Lantern Quesadilla
Here is a Fantastically, Spooky Lunchtime Meal your kiddos will remember. Get our easy to follow instructions on how to make a Halloween quesadilla <–right here!
Pumpkin Quesadillas are super cute at this time of year.
- 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.
I think next time I will try using these cookie cutters to save myself even more time! It will easily cut perfectly:
- These Pumpkin Punchers pumpkin carving kit for kids works really well as cookie cutters too.
- This large jack o lantern Halloween cookie cutter 5 piece set has everything you need to carve a pumpkin…or a quesadilla!
- These shape cookie cutters are great for making the jack o lantern facial features.
- This is a big one piece cookie cutter that makes the entire jack-o-lantern design.
3. How to Make Spooky Cheese Stick Fingers for Halloween
Mozzarella Stick Fingers
I love this idea of Mozzarella Fingers because they are so simple to make! 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. Kinda looks like a finger, but not real enough to be gross.
Oh So Adorable Halloween Snack Ideas
4. How to Make a Mummy Juice Box
For your Mummy Juice Box:
- Glue 2 googly eyes to a piece of black paper and glue the paper onto the front of a juice box.

Super Easy Witch’s Broom Dessert
To make a Witches Broom takes no time or effort! Easiest dessert I could find and a definite hit with my son!

More Halloween Food You Have to Try
- 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!!!“
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 until October 31st to get this special lunch!
