Frankenstein Bento Lunch

Remember the Shortcut Monster Finger Treats we shared yesterday? Well we added those monster fingers to this fun Frankenstein Bento Lunch! This is a easy Halloween lunch to make for the kids and they will love opening this up for lunch at school!


Sandwich of Choice
1 Fruit Leather Strip
Container of Apple Sauce
A Few Green Grapes
Veggie Straws (we picked out the spinach ones)
1 Mini Marshmallow
Shortcut Monster Finger Treats

We started out by cutting off the crust from our bread into a rectangle. Make whatever sandwich your kids like. We cut off a thin strip from the fruit leather using kitchen scissors. We made Frankenstein’s mouth with the thin strip. We then cut out zig zags from the rest of the fruit leather to make his hair. We made eye brows and pupils using scraps. Cut a mini marshmallow in half for the eyes. We placed 2 green grapes on the bottom sides for his electrodes. We added spinach veggie straws. We decorated the apple sauce using black marker. Kroger brand apple sauce is solid green on top. We added our Shortcut Monster Finger Treats next to Frank’s head for dessert.

Fantastic lunch! My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.)
