Jack Skellington Bento Box

It doesn't have to be Halloween to make a lunch fit for your very own little Pumpkin King or Queen!

Jack Skellington Bento Box Contents:

  • Jack Skellington sandwich
  • Zero (the dog) boiled egg
  • Pineapple
  • Carrots & cucumber slices

Sandwich Ingredients: 2 slices of bread, sandwich fillings, spinach leaves, cream cheese

Tools needed: Cutting board, small sharp knife, toothpick, oval cookie cutters, kitchen shears

Sandwich Instructions:

1. Cut both slices of bread into a circular shape (Jack's face isn't a perfect circle). Fill sandwich with favorite ingredients (the above sandwich is peppered turkey and cheddar).

2. To make Jack's features, cut two larger ovals from two spinach leaves. Set aside.

Step 2

3. Using a smaller oval cutter, cut the edge of one of the spinach leaves. Flip the cutter and re-cut the same piece of spinach to make an almond shaped nostril. Repeat for the second nostril.

Step 3

4. For Jack's smile, use kitchen shears to cut a smile shape from the edge of a spinach leaf.

Step 4

5. To assemble, dip toothpick in cream cheese and use very small dots to adhere Jack's features to the bread.

Step 5

6. Using kitchen shears again, cut small sections of spinach leaves to finish Jack's mouth. Dot with cream cheese and press in place.

Step 6

Zero Boild Egg:

Ingredients needed: 1 boiled egg, 2 baby carrots, 1 spinach leaf, cream cheese

Tools needed: Cutting board, small sharp knife, toothpick, oval fondant cutters

1. Slice egg in half lengthwise, save the other half to put in the bento box underneath Zero.

2. Using oval fondant cutter, cut two eyes for Zero. Attach to the egg, using cream cheese if necessary.

3. Slice end off of one carrot, then slice a single circle for Zero's nose. Attach with a dab of cream cheese.

4. Slice/shave two strips from the sides of a carrot to make Zero's ears. A thinner carrot works better for this. Cut a small point at one end.

5. Using the tip of a knife, pierce the side of the egg enough to insert one ear, then repeat on the other side.
