Cucumber Mummy

Simple food, turned spooky! Cucumber with stings of cheese, some candy eyes and it's a spooky mummy. You could use Spaghetti or Fettuccine to wrap around your cucumber too.

Spooky Sandwiches

Use a cookie cutter to create a face, add strawberry jam and olive eyes and you've created a spooky simple sandwich! You could also use cutters from our Lunch Punch Sandwich Cutter range to create your very own spooky Mermaid or Dinosaur!

I love how simple this Bento Two Snack box is! Add some candy eyes to your bliss balls and a couple of fun halloween food picks - viola! A simple Halloween snack box ready to run out the door.

Freaky Face Sandwiches 

Don't be overwhelmed by creating themed lunches! They really can be so simple when you break it down. Use Edible Food Pens to create fun faces on sandwiches, eggs, fruit or vegetables.

Green Monster Wraps

Spinach Wraps turn a simple wrap into a spooky green monster wrap! I love the addition of the M&M's to make a popcorn mix - a touch of fun to a spooky lunchbox!
