Halloween falls on a weekday this year, Wednesday 31st October 2018. My kids have organised to get together with friends to go trick or treating so they have been having fun researching Halloween costume ideas, I’ll share some ideas with you soon so you can start planning with your kids too. Meanwhile to help the kids get into the Halloween spirit, as it falls on a school day, you could consider creating a Halloween lunch box with some of these spooky Halloween lunchbox snack ideas for kids.

This Halloween lunch box was so amusing to put together! I’ve never really been the mum that makes lunches look fun, I just make sure they have a balanced variety of food, so this creation was out of my ordinary but I actually found it fun and it didn’t take too long at all.
How cute is this cheesy spider!! Coupled with fruit and the baked pea crisps it’s a great morning tea snack. I have added extra cheese to the lunchbox too as my kids love it.
I recommend you leave the mandarin out overnight before using a Nikko pen to draw on a pumpkin face. I did mine while it was still cold and my pen didn’t like the moisture and started to fail.
This trick brings a whole new meaning to “finger sandwiches” – Slice two red grapes in half, cut the crusts off a strawberry jam sandwich and cut into four fingers. Press the end of the fingers to flatten, add a small dab of peanut butter to tip of finger to keep grape in place.
I used these edible markers to draw directly onto the ‘ghost’ egg.
Here’s a list of the food I used in this lunchbox:
- Babybel mini cheese portions
- Baked Pea Crisps
- Block cheese, cubed
- Boiled egg
- Edible Markers
- Red Grapes
- Strawberry Jam
- Peanut Butter
- Pitted Olives

MAKE HALLOWEEN TREAT BAGS
We thought it would be fun to make up treat bags like I do at Christmas for the kids can give to their friends at school, or to have on hand in the evening to hand out to the trick or treaters. I filled them with chocolate and lollies that are wrapped, because I don’t like my kids accepting unwrapped lollies (we usually throw them out).
