Jack o lantern sandwich in Easy Lunchboxes

I’ve been trying to Halloween up the lunches a bit this week.  My little one had WOWbutter soy spread and strawberry jam on Rudi’s Organic whole wheat bread.  She has a raw fig treat and raisins in the main compartment with her lunch.  In the top parts of her Easy Lunchboxes containers are plum sections and strawberry hearts.
