I love (love!) to make fun lunches for my kids. Here is one that I made for my kids today and I wanted to share now, in case it would inspire you for a fun idea for tomorrow which is Halloween!
I think, like most moms, I want to be creative, but I am short on the time to do too much. This lunch was SO easy … I drew a Jack-o-lantern on the top of a Dole Mandarin Orange fruit cup with a Sharpie. I also smushed a pair of vampire teeth into a sandwich and added 2 large google eyes and just a dab of jam for blood. You could also use an edible items for the eyes, but I couldn’t resist how fun the google eyes were!
My kids get the biggest kick out of these small surprises and it makes me feel more involved in their day to know that they are thinking of me when they open their lunches!
