I made jack-o’-lantern PBJs for the girls’ lunches yesterday and was pretty happy with the way they turned out. Well Ro and Ree not only liked the themed lunches, but said that since it’s the day before Halloween they wanted even MORE Halloweeny stuff in their lunches today (then they giggled and squealed and ran out of the room).
So this is what I came up with over breakfast this morn:
Pretty Halloweeny, right?
They’ve each got a fruit bar cut in half and colored with a ghost face, a cutie orange jack-o’-lantern, 4 pieces of tortilla cut in a pumpkin shape with cheese in between each layer (I cut out a jack-o’-lantern face on the first layer and microwaved the stack for 10 seconds to melt the cheese a bit and make it stick together), some candy corn, and a Halloween joke (there are six to choose from, printed from here).
Whew. They were so happy with these lunches. Anyone got any good ideas for tomorrow?
