Need a healthy, yet fun Halloween idea for the lunch box? Check out these awesome Halloween ghost eggs!
This ghostly lunch has two perfectly cooked, hard-boiled eggs decorated with cut-out eyes and a mouth from a strip of roasted seaweed, Nori. It’s a festive way to make a Halloween inspired lunch that’s still healthy and fun.
I like to pack this lunch, bento-style with sliced cheese stick circles, pretzel crisps, and some veggies for added crunch and nutrition. Of course, you could swap ingredients for your kids’ favorite lunch snacks, while sticking to the theme.
I’m all about sharing school lunch ideas that keep it simple and can be prepared in various ways to appeal to kids and the parents who pack them! Each week I share lunch ideas here and in our family meal plans that are flexible enough to swap ingredients -like ham for turkey- to accommodate for taste preferences and use up what you have on hand, and in this case, it was hard-boiled eggs!
It’s easy to get your kids excited for Halloween, so why not take advantage of the season and use it to get them excited about trying fresh and healthy foods?
Halloween Ghost Eggs
- 2 hard-boiled eggs, cooled
- 1 strip of roasted seaweed, nori
- Using a pair of kitchen scissors, cut 2 tiny circles (mouthes) and 4 tiny ovals (eyes).
- Using clean hands, or kitchen tweezers, apply 1 mouth and 2 eyes to each hard-boiled egg. Gently press the seaweed with your finger.
- The seaweed should adhere to the surface of the egg, if not, use a damp Q-tip to press it onto the egg.
- Pack the hard-boiled eggs in a lunch container with your choice of fruit, veggies, and crackers.
