There鈥檚 nothing like Halloween to bring out the kid in us all. You鈥檝e gotta love a holiday that鈥檚 all about sweet treats, fun group costumes and Pin-worthy scary makeup. If you鈥檙e looking to inject some spooky spirit into the days leading up to Halloween, you already know that you need to start with some sweet and savory treats. And, of course, a Halloween cocktail or two as you鈥檙e finishing making your costume can鈥檛 hurt. But the best way to insert some holiday into your day is with bento lunches full of creepy cuteness. Here are 16 Halloween-themed bento boxes that will give everyone a laugh at lunch.


1. Halloween Picnic Bento: Everyone will freak out at these skull-shaped musubis, with nori eye sockets and stitched grimaces.
