I make my kids an A Christmas Story lunch every year and always try to add something new. This year I added a "You'll shoot your eye out" part of the lunch!

 How to Make a Thanksgiving Turkey School Lunch

Thanksgiving is absolutely one of the most delicious meals of the year. Once those leaves start to turn, I start dreaming of that deep-fried turkey goodness. So in preparation for getting on those stretchy pants, I always have to make a fun turkey-themed lunch or two for my kids. This year is no different, so here is a food art turkey that ironically contains no turkey. Although it could. The meat is up to you!

The easy thing about making holiday-themed lunches is that you can substitute whatever your kids like or whatever you have on hand. So feel free to throw in different types of fruits, veggies, desserts, etc. Keep reading to find out what I included!

Fall Football School Lunch Recipe

 Fall Football Lunch Recipe

Nothing says fall like football! We just finished up both of my sons' youth football leagues and my daughter is just about done with her first season with the high school marching band, which plays every Friday night at games. I'm also knee-deep in my fantasy football leagues, one of which I'm barely still alive in but stubbornly hanging on. 

I haven't even mentioned watching NFL games yet. We live in Oklahoma which means people live and die with OU and OSU but we are more into the Seattle Seahawks. So yeah, you can say football is a big deal in our house. This is why it is time to break out the football lunch. This lunch features football sandwiches, fall-themed chips and apples, and some pumpkin-shaped desserts. I believe we bought all of these fall-themed sides at Trader Joe's, but you can find similar ones at different stores. Keep reading for the rest of the directions.

Disney Halloween Mickey Mouse Ears Lunch Recipes

Halloween at Disneyland is amazing and if you've never been, I highly recommend it. The Oogie Boogie Bash is well worth the price. We were able to go a few years ago and made a ton of forever memories. However, whether we can visit Disney for Halloween or not, it's always fun to have a Disney Halloween lunch. Plus you only have to travel to the store to pick up the groceries, not all the way to southern California!

I made three different Mickey Ears Halloween sandwiches for my three kids but it also gives you options on what sandwich to make for your kids. Would they choose Frankenstein? The Mummy? or Maybe a Jack-o-Lantern? Keep reading to find out how to make them all!

The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Food Art Lunch Recipe

Since The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of our favorite Halloween/Christmas movies, we have to do at least one Jack Skellington lunch recipe every year. This one is pretty simple because I was short on time. I think it would be fun for any kid that loves this movie!

Side note, I love all of the Halloween-themed snacks and treats in the stores right now. They make creating fun Halloween recipes really easy! I found these gummy vampire teeth at Target and they are pretty tasty. I might have had to sample one when I was making this lunch. I can neither confirm nor deny that. But while you figure that you, here is how to assemble this Halloween food art lunch for your kids. 

How to Make a Fall Winnie-The-Pooh Food Art Pizza School Lunch

How to Make a Fall Winnie-The-Pooh Food Art Pizza School Lunch

Why does fall always remind me of Winnie-the-Pooh? I think it's the idea of a blustery day with fallen leaves blowing in a gust of wind. Or maybe it's Pooh with his red balloon or head stuck in a honey pot muttering, "Oh bother." Whatever the adventure in the Hundred Acre Wood, it always puts a smile on my face and takes me back to my childhood. This is why I love to make this simple Winnie-the-Pooh pizza for my kids because maybe it will put a smile on their faces also. 

Whoever your favorite character from the stories is, Pooh Bear is probably near the top. His lovable innocence and knack for getting himself into tight spots always leaves every reader saying, "silly old bear." If you think your kids will love an easy school lunch based on these books, movies, and T.V. shows, my directions are below.
