1st Grade Bento #21 - Its HaLlOwEeN Month and a new (old) box!

I'm so excited!  In digging through our storage last night, looking for more items for my Garage Sale, I came across a big tote box full of duffle bags, tote bags, lunch bags and more!  The Hubs was NOT excited!  He hates all the bags that I already had in the house!  I had forgotten all about it!  In there was this ladybug lunchbag that I had from when I was a ladybug collector.  And guess what was in it?!  A bento box!!  I had to have gotten this thing atleast 7 or 8 years ago!  Totally exciting!  So I washed it all up to send to school with Kylee.  It even has a matching waterbottle!
Of course by the time we got everything in the house, I ran out of time to actually make a bento, so we have another "thrown-together-in-the-morning" bento.  I hate doing bentos in the morning.  Not enough time to get creative!
Leftover Pizza cut into strips
Grape Tomatoes
Spooky Oreos
Mini Club Crackers
and a couple of Clementines

I put the lunchbox in her backpack as a surprise, so hopefully she will enjoy the change today. :)

I like the eye balls on the oreos--cute!

hah, love it when you find things like this you've forgotten about.

I hate doing bentos in the morning too! 98% of mine are done then. I agree, you just end up rushing.

I love that, so cool to find things you don't have.

Quick question, are you in the Houston area? Had someone contact me to see if I knew any Houston bento mommies, so going through my Texas list and hoping!
