Two months in to the school year and my daughter is bored with lunches.  To spice up her lunch box AND do something fun for Halloween, I decided to make an easy Spooky Sandwich.

I bought a set of food markers (I found mine at Walmart, but a craft store would also be a good source) to decorate some lunch items.  It is best to draw on a more solid surface, such as royal icing, or in this case a tortilla.  Soft items like bread or oily/crumbly items don’t work well.

I drew skeletons onto one half of the tortilla before filling them with cheese to make quesadillas.  I also drew on sandwich rolls, just make sure to roll the sandwich first so that you don’t hide some of the image. 

This is such an easy way to bring a smile to your kiddos face without much effort.  Every now and then I plan on surprising my daughter with flowers or faces on her sandwiches!
