Googly Eye Utensils and Halloween Lunch

My son is very interested and intrigued by monsters, ghosts, mummy's and goblins right now. I am just happy he is not scared of them at three years old. He decided that it would be fun to bring a "spooky" Halloween lunch to school. It was a perfect activity for us. Our adventure began with some monster (googly eye) utensils. We just hot glued googly eyes of different sizes on some spoons and forks. These googly eye utensils would be perfect for a Halloween or monster birthday party.

Next, we cut out sandwich's with Halloween cookie cutters. It may seem like the same old boring idea to us as parents, but I can assure you, our kids still thinks it is creative and fun. The treasure is in the eye of the beholder.

We took a container of Mandarin oranges, and dressed it up like a Jack-O-Lantern, with a pair of eyes, a nose, and a mouth.

I had saved a milk carton from Chick-fil-A and we hot-glued googly eyes on it too. My son still loves milk and brings it to school every day. I covered a small box of raisins in orange striped paper and the googly eyes did their work again. I am not sure what it is about googly eyes... but they look silly on anything!

For desert, I cut a bat out of black paper and attached a Hershey bar for a treat. I think these would be fun for trick or treaters or Halloween class favors.

Here...is our spooky, scary, and haunted lunchbox. If I would have thought of it sooner, I would have packed everything in a plastic orange pumpkin. A lunch box, is truly anything you want it to be. Never be afraid to be creative!


  1. What a fun lunch. Must have been the hit of the classroom. I made a Halloween meal for my preschoolers and they loved it. http://www.messforless.net/2011/10/halloween-meal-with-ghost-popcorn.html
