Making Lunch Fun, One Box at a Time

I get a lot of inspiration from other blogs. So, in hopes someone might get some inspiration from me, I've decided to post some pictures here.

Jolly Jack-O-Lanterns

Normally, the girls have identical lunches, except for the type of sandwich. But, these lunches ended up a little different so I thought I'd post a picture of both.

H's Lunch:

  • Turkey and cheddar on whole wheat. She has a cheddar jack-o-lantern accented with brown crust for the stem and a leaf pick

  • Cucumber and orange tomato kabobs on pumpkin picks with ranch

  • Strawberries with a pumpkin pick (H doesn't like clementines)

  • Candy pumpkins

A's Lunch:

  • Ave isn't a fan of large pieces of cheese on her sandwich so instead of doing the cheddar pumpkin, I just used the cut-outs from H's sandwich to decorate Ave's sandwich. I also decorated hers with brown crust for the stem and a leaf pick.

  • A Clementine jack-o-lantern

  • Cucumber and orange tomatoes on a pumpkin pick

  • Candy pumpkins
