Disney Mickey Mouse Ears Halloween Food Art Lunch

Disneyland Halloween Party

It's that time of year again and we love to celebrate autumn and Halloween at our house. Better yet, we made this lunch for my boys to help give them a hint of the surprise that we revealed later in the evening...that we are going to Disneyland! Next month we are heading to the happiest place on earth for the Oogie Boogie Bash.

Of course I had to create a fun Disney lunch to celebrate and what better way to do that than with some Mickey Mouse ears sandwiches and a poison apple? I just had to throw some Jack Skellington Nightmare Before Christmas ears in there as well!

We finished the surprise by reading them a Disney story for bedtime. on the last page we included a note that told them to go to the door for a package. They ran to the door and grabbed a big box. Inside were Disney balloons and they had to guess what it all meant. They were shocked when we told them that their guess of going to Disneyland was correct. Not only that, but we are meeting some of our extended family there. We can't wait! In the meantime, keep reading for the ingredients to inspire you to make your own lunch.

How to Make a VSCO Girl TikTok lunch

Do you have a VSCO Girl living at your house? There are a few sure ways to find out. Is your middle school or high school aged girl walking around constantly wearing oversized t-shirts or hoodies along with short-shorts and a puka shell necklace? Do you hear excited chatterings that sound like SKSKSK coming from their room? Are they always on TikTok and mutter exclamations like, "And I Oop!" Is it impossible for them to leave the house without a scrunchie and Hydro Flask water bottle while wearing Crocs, Vans, or Birkenstocks? Does your daughter have a sudden urge to save the turtles?

If these things are true of the girl living in your house, then you officially have a VSCO Girl in your family. Don't worry though, this trend seems to be fairly harmless, unless they try to talk you into buying them a Jeep and a Fjallraven's Kranken backpack! But let's be honest. We all had our teenage trend didn't we? Mine was Doc Martens, flannel, long hair, and Seattle grunge music.

How to Make a Hamilton Musical Food Art School Lunch

I'm just going to start by being honest here. I don't know much about Hamilton, the musical that has taken the world by storm. I'm not really into musicals and have only seen a handful of shows in the theatre. I am aware the the soundtrack is supposed to be great and it is based on historical events. With that being said I also know that my daughter is addicted, and I mean ADDICTED, to the music and the thought of going to see this show makes her giddy with delight. That is enough for me to make her a Hamilton food art lunch for school.

How to make a LEGO Unikitty School Lunch

If your kids are like mine, they are deep into LEGO and obsessed with The LEGO Movie...both parts one and two. It's because of their everlasting love of the building bricks that mine were begging me for another LEGO lunch. It's been awhile since I made the last one so I figured it was time, and I chose Unikitty. She is a unicorn-cat hybrid!

"If only the best birds sang, the forest would be silent." - Henry Van Dyke

There's something so silly, inspiring, and fun about birds! Growing up we had chickens, but we also had a couple of parakeets. We ended up putting the parakeets in the chicken coop and you know what happened? They became best friends with the chickens and even started to act like them. That is until the parakeets found a way out and flew away together. Oh well. Bird shaped food is a fun addition to any lunchbox. This bird sandwich is filled with tasty chicken salad featuring toasted California Walnuts!
