Fall is here and Halloween is just around the corner! Are you ready for some Halloween Bento Box Lunch Ideas?!

NEW - This year! Loving the new Bentgo box!

Let's spark some fun ideas for creating awesome Bento Box Lunches your kids will Love & EAT!

We are a Halloween loving family so it is only natural that I'd have to make Fall and Halloween themed Bento Box lunches for my daughter!

As I am sure you know by now, last year was the beginning of my Bento Box Lunch creations. All of these are from last year, which started my obsession with creating “themed” lunches!

Even though I didn’t have a lot of fun tools yet, I used what I had at the time! Check out my other more recent Bento Box Posts here for more inspiration.

Luckily, with what I had on hand already, I was able to get creative and used cookie cutters for sandwich shape cutouts.

As well, I found whatever I could to create some fun Fall and Halloween themed lunches. 

At home one weekend, we decided to have a tea party so I made cucumber pumpkin tea sandwiches!

These little pumpkin sandwiches were a tea party hit and became a Bento Box inspiration!

Fall Bento Box - Pumpkin Patch (use a sharpie to write on the banana!)

Last year I only made a few Fall themed lunches, as I was just hitting my stride with the themes. The banana stems worked really well as “pumpkin stems”!

When Fall came around last year, I had already been planning to make my usual “Baked Pumpkin Donuts” (I make them every year, and even my hairdresser requests I bring her a batch)!

My love of baking has been around a while, and I do try to cultivate it whenever I can, and if I can make something healthier, that is always my goal! 

Donuts….we love them! So much! Yes, they are not “healthy”, so I limit our interaction with the normal “fried” ones. 

Due to that deep love of donuts, years back I got some donut pans for “baking” healthier donuts.

Several years into baking donuts, I have perfected my easy, healthy, 100 calorie pumpkin donut!  YES, THEY ARE AMAZING!

These Wilton donut baking pans are awesome! You’ll see I use them to make cinnamon roll donuts, and all sorts of other fun, “healthier” donuts! Let’s keep it real, I was not giving up donuts!

Given my love of baking, last year I experimented a bit and made some healthy blueberry muffins. The blueberries were big and juicy so I decided to stick a big blueberry right in the middle!

The result…delicious and it looked like an eyeball! This worked out great for the Halloween themed bento box lunches I made! 

Muffins are a great pre-made meal prep item to easily add when making lunches. If you don’t know me yet, I am a busy busy bee, so I love anything that saves time!

Halloween Theme Bento Box with Coffin PB sandwiches & Zombie arm cupcake picks

Cupcake sets for Halloween with fun picks work really great to "Theme" decorate your bento box lunches!

The Zombie picks I used last year came from a cupcake set my mom found on clearance at Marshall's and gave to me.

She knows I love to make cupcakes! Thanks Mom! Likewise, my daughter LOVED IT!

Zombie Graveyard Bento Box

Here in the Zombie graveyard Bento Box lunch you’ll see I used several items from my Grab & Go list below. This was a 3 minute lunch prep quickie!

Even though I didn’t have any real “tools” just yet, you can see I still managed to pull together some fun little Bento Box lunch ideas using some pretty basic items. 

Each holiday season, you can find all sorts of fun themed snacks, candy, cereals, etc. This is something I always look for and make sure I have on hand for making lunches. 

Don’t underestimate the awesomeness of some fun themed cereals as well! Cereal is an easy thing to add to lunch, and it is a fun little treat that always goes over well!

For St. Patty's Day I had the cookies, cereal, Shamrock sandwich cutter - the works!

Using gummy worms and gummy candy as a treat and decoration was a huge hit. 

While researching ideas on Pinterest I saw some cute Bento Boxes that inspired me, like this skull lunch box from Sugarspiceandglitter.
