Your child will love this peanut butter and jelly ghost sandwich!

Ghosts are a symbol of Halloween, so they would be perfect to pack in your little one’s lunch boxes this time of the year. 

Fist, gather your ingredients:

  • two slices of bread (white bread makes a whiter ghost, but I like to use whole wheat for its healthy aspects and have the ghost shape be the attraction for the child)
  • peanut butter
  • your favorite flavor of jelly
  • 3 raisins
  • ghost shape cookie cutter

If you don’t have a ghost cookie cutter, use a pair of scissors and this ghost shape template. You can cut a shape free hand if you have a steady hand.

Just make your sandwich, use a pair of scissors to cut off the crusts and decorate the face with raisins for eyes and a nose. So cute!
