Spooky Halloween Mini Pizzas


I just love making mini pizzas with the kids. They are easy and quick to make and the kids love them. Last weekend we decided to make our mini pizzas a little more spooky and made them Halloween-style. The kids loved them! Find out how we made them by visiting CBC Parents.

this week in bento boxes

Happy Sunday! Halloween is sneaking up on us and I’ve started making spooky and fun lunches for the kiddos for school. This week the kids enjoyed 2 matching Halloween bento boxes and I’m ready to make more this week!



The first Halloween lunch is packed in their EasyLunchboxes. The large compartment held a mini silicone loaf pan with sliced cheesestring and pepperoni. I put some round Saltine crackers beside the silicone mold. The other compartments held a silicone muffin cup with sliced baby carrots and a cute cupcake ring pick and a container of unsweetened applesauce with a spooky vinyl face on top – I found the spooky vinyl faces at the dollar store.



Next is a couple matching spooky lunches in their Rubbermaid Lunchblox Kits. The large sandwich container held a turkey sandwich with Halloween icing eyes and a lip pop Halloween pick – leftover from the lollipop. The other containers held crinkle cup cucumbers and sliced green apple with a spider ring pick and pretzel sticks with a silicone muffin cup holding sliced cheesestring.

Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches (contains affiliate links)

this week in bento boxes

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends! This week in bento boxes is all about matching lunches. My kids have been getting a lot of matching lunches lately and I’ve been loving it. It saves me time, energy and creativity, lol. The kids have been loving it too. It’s a win-win for everyone. Here are some of the lunches they have enjoyed lately:



First up is a set of matching lunches in their lock and lock 4 square boxes. One box held a silicone muffin cup with a hard-boiled egg. The second box held rainbow goldfish crackers. The third box held sliced baby carrots, and the fourth box held a silicone muffin cup with sliced cheesestring and a cute bento pick.



Next up is a set of matching yumboxes – green for Camden and pink for Kirsten. The protein section held sliced meatballs that were leftover from supper. The grains section held wheat thins crackers and the veggie section held a silicone muffin cup with sliced cucumbers and a cute bento pick. The fruit section held half a banana, the dairy section held sliced cheesestring and the centre circle held some yummy fruit chews.



Lastly, a pair of matching EasyLunchboxes featuring leftover deep dish pizza from dinner. They also had some fresh green grapes with a cute pick and a silicone muffin cup with crinkle-cut cucumbers.
