How to Make a The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Lunch

If you have followed my blog for awhile you know Disney's The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of our favorite seasonal movies. It just puts us in the mood for the holidays. I try to make a lunch based on the movie every Halloween, Christmas, or even both! This year is no exception so it was time to make a Jack Skellington lunch featuring Oogie Boogie.

Who is your favorite character from this movie? Is it Jack? Sally? Zero? They are all so good it's hard to choose. My kids are even planning to dress up as character from The Nightmare Before Christmas this Halloween. If your kids are into this movie as much as mine are, keep reading to find out how to make them this lunch!

Creepy Graveyard Halloween Pasta Recipe

Who else has Halloween vibes right now? This is one of my family's favorite times of year and it's definitely a fun time to make Halloween recipes. This is why I had to create a kid-friendly creepy graveyard recipe complete with Jack-O-Lantern artisan tomatoes from Red Sun Farms, black bean pasta, mummy juice box, and more! Keep reading to find out how to make this for your family.

We try to always have a supply of Red Sun Farms bite sized tomatoes on hand because not only are they perfect for recipes, but they make a great snack that is actually good for you. It's so easy to just keep a container on the counter and quickly pop one in my mouth when I need a quick snack, but I also need to keep moving to get stuff done. Try them when you make this Halloween graveyard recipe, or in your next salad!

Dessert Board Recipe Featuring Mo Willems Unlimited Squirrels in I Want to Sleep Under the Stars

It was a great day in our house when the new Unlimited Squirrels in I Want to Sleep Under the Stars book came out! My kids read it cover to cover as soon as it arrived on our doorstep. The squirrels in this series are always hilarious and I love that there are science facts woven into this story. Zoom Squirrel, the main character in this story, wants to try sleeping outside under the stars. Do your kids beg you to sleep in the backyard like mine do? Well then maybe it's time you read this new Unlimited Squirrels book with them! For a reading snack, make this dessert food board I created inspired by the book!

Normally I make food boards that are great for lunch or dinner but today I wanted to create one that would be easy for families to make together for dessert. Just like Zoom Squirrel had never slept under the stars, I had never made a dessert board with my kids. They loved this one and your kids will too!

How to Make a Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine School Lunch

How to Make a Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine School Lunch

There aren't many characters as timeless as Scooby-Doo. I watched the show growing up and my kids now love it too! My youngest always asks to watch Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated on Netflix. I always bug my kids when they are watching the show by singing the original (and best) theme song while they yell back at me that that's not how it goes. It only makes me sing "Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? Couldn't have the show without ya" even louder. 

Since they love the show and the characters so much, I thought it was time to make my first Scooby lunch for them. It did not disappoint. Here is how I made it and how you can make it as well!

How to Make Chocolate Life Cereal and Peanut Butter Apple Sandwiches

When it comes to kids and snacks, the general rule is that you can never have too many. I mean snacks, you can never have too many snack options. This is where my Chocolate flavored Life Cereal and Peanut Butter Apple Sandwich recipe comes in handy. These sandwiches are super tasty, can be put together in minutes, and only take four ingredients. So basically they are a great snack for kids!

How to Make a Flower Garden School Lunch Recipe Plus Food Safety Tips!

If you have older kids like I do, they not only want more sophisticated lunches, but they also want to help in the kitchen. I think this is fantastic because not only do I have the opportunity to get creative in making fun lunches for a middle schooler, but sometimes I even get her to help! Those times when we cook, bake, or make creative food together are also times when I get to talk to her about safety in the kitchen. 

There are the obvious food safety rules like washing your hands before you start touching anything. But the ones that get her are things like making her wash her hands again after she touches her phone (yuck). Food safety doesn't have to be complicated, but it is important, so that is why I thought it was time to put together a fun recipe, like my Flower Garden Food Art Lunch, with some tips from www.fightbac.org to help reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses.

In fact, fightbac.org has a fantastic campaign going on right now called #TheStoryofYourDinner to help educate families on the importance of food safety. For example, did you know that children under 7-years-old are at a higher risk of serious food poisoning? Make sure to head to the fightbac website for more tips after you read my instructions for making this fun school lunch for your kids!

How to Make a Sloth School Lunch Recipe For Your Kids!

Now that the school year is in full swing, I thought I would try a new food art recipe. I wanted to create a design that my kids would love, but that I had never made before. I spotted these new Quaker Chewy Dipps Sloth-Tastic bars and I had my inspiration! Can you believe that I have never made a sloth school lunch before? I figured it was time to change that. This sloth sandwich lunch is great for a lunch at school, at home, or even an after school snack!
