Happy Halloween!! The excitement is extremely high in my house this morning. B did not want to go to school. He made his case that since Halloween is his favorite holiday he should be able to choose what he wants to do for the day.:) Ahh..kids. He can be so funny. He did in fact, go to school. :)
I thought it would be fun to create a spooky lunch for Halloween. How cute is this? I used my fun Halloween cookie cutters to cut the shapes for a graveyard scene. I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and a whole wheat wrap for the brown tree, tombstone and bat. I cut black olives to make spiders crawling throughout the lunch, with a little help from some cream cheese to help the spiders stick. The fingers, I know gross, and rolled turkey with sliced almonds as fingers.I cut a few slits in the turkey where the knuckles would appear, and added some taco sauce on the ends for blood. (This was B's idea.) The ghost is made of cheese with mini chocolate chips for eyes. I had to have some fruit in there, so these fresh strawberries completed the lunch. B was so excited to take this to school.
The tick or treat parade is after school, with some trick or treating to follow. How are you celebrating Halloween?
Thanks for stopping by, Kayla
