It’s no secret that I absolutely love lunchbox surprises (Do you remember my unicorn sandwich hack a few weeks ago?!). I think that a cute little note of love from home in the middle of the school day makes our kids happier and reminds them they’re loved.

It’s also no secret that I absolutely love holidays, and Halloween is no exception! To celebrate, I’m packing my little one’s lunchbox with adorable DIY mummy water bottles and sharing with you this super simple tutorial!

The Perfect Halloween Lunchbox Surprise: Mummy Water!


Small Water Bottles


Glue Stick

Black Paper



Googly Eyes



1. Take a water bottle and your gauze & wrap your water bottle up.

2. Take your scissors and cut the leftover gauze. Then tuck the end of your gauze into the gauze on your water bottle.

3. Now glue on those googly eyes with your glue stick.

4. Time to cut out a mouth using your black paper. Once you have cut one out, glue it onto your water bottle.

5. Glue on a plastic spider.

6. Ta-Da! You now have Mummy Water Bottles.

Other Halloween Lunch Surprises

In addition to your fun mummy water bottles, you can add other silly Halloween surprises to your little one’s lunchbox. Throw in a silly Halloween joke handwritten on her lunch napkin. Put a fake roach in her lunchbox. Bake her a cupcake with a fake eyeball resting on the frosting. Or even dye his spaghetti black before you add the sauce.
