It’s almost trick or treat time. I wish I could say that I’m ready, but I’m not. My kids’ costumes were ordered and still haven’t arrived. I am throwing a party in my front yard this year with my neighbor so we can feed the kids healthy food, play games and wear them out a bit before trick or treating. We did the same last year, and they were pretty full from healthy food before all the candy so it was a success! We made almond butter and jam sandwiches, fresh fruit, vegetable sticks with dip, hummus and pretzels and ice water. Any fun ideas that you all are planning? I’d love to hear your ideas!
My 2 year old has a jack o lantern sandwich made from the heel of the bread loaf and filled with pumpkin butter spread. She also has black olives, cantaloupe pumpkins, dried apricot pumpkins and at the top left is a nut and seed mixture with dried cranberries complete with zombie hand and tombstone. At the top right is a peeled clementine packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.
Little Miss G (4) has a similar lunch today. She has the same jack-o-lantern sandwich, a jack-o-lantern clementine, pumpkin shaped dried apricots and trail mix of nuts and berries in her Easy Lunchboxes Mini dipper container. At the top left is a seckel pear and at the top right are pumpkin shaped cantaloupe pieces packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.
And for a snack I packed a Happy Tiffin stainless bento with raspberries, a clementine ghost and the round container full of cashews.
Happy weekend, everyone!
