Monday - Green Monkey requested a vampire, so Count PB&J for him. We used Fruit leather for the hair and suit, and cut a jell bean in half and then in half again on an angle for fangs. Cucumber is Frankenstein again with the jelly bean and fruit leather. Little Blue monkey wanted bats and gave then the other half of the white jellybean for fangs. Little blue monkey got his lunch for our pumpkin patch playdate since it involved a picnic.
Tuesday - Frankenstein Turkey and cheese with fruit leather hair and suit and string cheese scar and bolts. Creepy hand carrots rising out of the ranch dressing, and a frankenberry with raisin bolts and a sliver of jelly bean scar. The frankenberries were our favorites.
Wednesday - Tuesday night we read his new library book Henry's Amazing Imagination! by Nancy Carlson. In it Henry comes up with all kinds of fantastic stories during Show & tell at school and everyone criticizes him for fibbing. He begins to write his stories out and tell the truth and everyone is bored with show & tell. He is then allowed to read his stories to his class and no one is bored again. Green monkey loved this book and requested aliens the next morning. So we have an alien turkey and cheese, alien cucumber with spinach tentacles, and a marshmallow eye alien grape. I did not have the book open when I made it so this is the blurry eyed 6am memory of what he requested LOL.
Thursday - A haunted house special - PB&J Haunted house and bat with a marshmallow ghost out front. Booberry, and carrot trees ( I was running late so I didn't have time to get too crafty with the branches)
Friday as always is buy your lunch day since he got all green days at school. I may make something fun for little blue monkey to go eat lunch with green monkey, we'll see. Last week I let him buy his lunch there too, he wasn't a fan LOL. He picked pepperoni pizza, carrot sticks, and orange slices and didn't eat any of it so we'll see if he get the same Friday deal when he's old enough for kindergarten.
There's a fantastic Halloween themed blog hop going on if you're looking for more Halloween lunch ideas. I start at Ketha's Chaos then hopped along all the Bento Bloggers & Friends posts.
