Easy Halloween Themed School Lunch

Halloween Themed School Bento Lunch

It’s the last week of October which can only mean that preparations for Halloween is on a roll. We prepared some school lunches to celebrate this month’s festivities. Scary Bat Lunch I have been using a lot of nori sheets to add fun in Kuya V’s school lunch. For our first lunch I cut out a bat out of a single nori sheet, placed on top a fried rice and use ketchup for the eyes. We then paired it with deli meat designed with some wakame seaweed and lettuce, pretzel sticks, orange slices and chocolate.   Ghost and Scary Cat Pizza I use a Halloween themed cookie cutter for this lunch. Get a piece of bread and flatten it with a rolling pin then use your cookie cutter to get the shape you want.

We did just that with our Filipino blogging family here in Dubai. Bbq, games with friends and cake! A wheelboard – We know that he really likes one but it’s too expensive and I find it dangerous. Luckily, I won an instagram competition hosted by Fun City – come, play! He can use the board indoors and always wearing a helmet. We watched the movie Pan at Vox Cinema at the newest wing of Mall of the Emirates.   iFly with Dad – a self challenge to conquer his fear of heights iFly Dubai. Last year he promised us and challenged himself that when he turns 8 years old he will try to conquer …

A week with BentGo Kids Lunchbox + Giveaway

It has been 1 month (plus) since school started and I’m still obsessing over getting the kids new lunchboxes and more bento tools for me to play around. I am happy with the existing lunchboxes that we have but found an excuse to but another one because LittleMiss started nursery and want some pastel colored boxes that is only her own. / “That is Kuya’s lunchbox, not mine.” “I want pink, purple or yellow.” I wanted the new boxes to be leak proof and lighter in weight. The search led me to several options and finally settled to BentGo Kids lunchbox. The kids have been using the box for a week now and they absolutely love it, I do too. Follow us on instagram for more school lunch ideas. Let us tell you why. Easy to open and drop proof design, the box has 2 latch that can easily be opened by my 3 yr old and it has rubber coated edges that is great for active kids who tend to always drop things when in …
