Easy-to-Make Halloween Bento Box for Kids

Halloween Bento Box for Kids

I have been having a lot of fun packing themed bento box style lunches for my kids this school year. They have really enjoyed it too. I would have started doing this years ago if I had realized how fun and easy it is to provide healthy lunches that my kids want to eat.

I received the challenge of preparing a healthy packed lunch for my kids that includes Lindsay olives. This was super easy because my kids love olives and because you can really get creative with them. I received Lindsay olives and a promotional item to facilitate this post.

Since Halloween is around the corner, I decided to make a spooky lunch for my daughter today. It was super easy to make and she loved it.

I made a mummy hot dog out of one hot dog, crescent rolls that I cut into strips, and Lindsay black ripe olives for the eyes. I wrapped the hot dog mummy style and left a space for the eyes. I baked in the oven for 10 minutes and cooled. I cut the ends off of an olive for the eyes.

I created a scary black spider resting on a deviled egg as well. I prepared the deviled eggs with a simple recipe of mayo, mustard, and vinegar for the filling. I sliced a Lindsay black olive in half for the body and placed on the egg. I then cut another olive into 8 slices length-wise for the legs. This couldn’t be easier! I cut the other 1/2 of the egg into squares for the deviled egg to rest on.

Since my daughter is all-girl but still likes Halloween, I made a couple girly items too. Beside the mummy hot dog, I made a fruit skewer of heart shaped fruit including a strawberry, grape, apple, and kiwi. I used a shaped food cutterto create the heart shapes.

I also created flower cut carrots. I used a vegetable cutter for the flower shape, pressing down on a peeled, cut large carrot. I added a small rolled ball of cream cheese at the center of each flower and then I added sliced green ripe California olives  from the Lindsay Naturals line for the eyes.

This was a fun and easy Halloween bento box to make. My kids are eating healthier lunches because they are fun and flavorful. With a little creativity, you can get kids to eat healthier without them even knowing it! Get more creative ideas for kids lunches and other recipes on the Lindsay Olives Pinterest page.
