Kids love Halloween. I don’t know about yours, but mine love everything leading up to the big night as much as the trick or treating itself. Plans for what to wear begin as early as July. And no matter what ages your kids are, it’s always fun to get creative in the kitchen. Cooking is such a great way to connect.
Here are three super easy ideas that don’t take a lot of supplies, talent OR time. And they are SURE to be a hit with your tots to tweens.
Watch the 5 min video below and I’ll talk you through making each one. The segment was taped live on Oct 29th on the St. Louis morning show Great Day St. Louis. The cliff note version is below as well! 😉
Watermelon BRAIN: Just a small watermelon, a potato peeler and a knife will get you this good looking center piece!
Bread Stick Roll BONES: My kids had a blast making these femur bones and ribs out of a roll of bread stick dough. They ate ’em up with a side of butter cinnamon sugar to dip them in. Get creative and make your own shapes!
Scary HAND Veggie Dip: Just cream cheese “glue” almond slices onto the ends of five finger-looking (peeled and ends cut off) carrots, then stick ’em in a bowl of dip and you’ve got a spoooookie treat. Your kids will want to eat even their GREEN veggies with this one. (for the picture, check the video above!)
