We had a lot of fun with Halloween food and crafts this year, thanks mostly to my mom! We spent a weekend at her house, and she was oh-so-prepared with Halloween funtivities.
Today I’m going to show you the fun Halloween food the kids got to create and enjoy, and then on Tuesday I’ll share our non-edible creations!
First, the kids had a lovely little Halloween lunch:
My mom made them jack o’ lantern peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by cutting out shapes on the top piece of bread:
Vanessa had to give hers a kiss. I promise I’m not smashing it in her face for any other reason.
Some festive Halloween pasta rounded out the meal:
For dinner, we had Mummy Hot Dogs!
Mummy Hot Dogs
- 11 oz Can of refrigerated breadsticks
- 8 ct Hot dogs
- 1 tsp Mustard
- Separate the strips of breadstick dough and cut each in half lengthwise
- Wrap two or three strips around the hot dogs, leaving a space near the top (for the mummy's eyes!)
- Bake on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 350 degrees
- Add mustard dots for eyes and serve!
For dessert, we had spider cupcakes!
These are just regular cupcakes-from-a-box, with some food coloring and various “extras,” set on spider cupcake holders from Home Goods. They look great on the table, and would be perfect for a spooky party!
The last food craft we actually ran out of time for, but my mom gave it a go after we left:
Ever thought of carving oranges?! Well you can, and they look like adorable little pumpkins! A perfect Halloween party snack!
Carved Orange Fruit Salad
- Cut-up fruit optional
- Cut off the top of each orange and scrape out the insides, just as you would when carving a pumpkin
- Carve a face!
- Cut up the orange pieces you scraped out, mix with other cut-up fruit if you wish, and put the fruit mix back inside the orange
- Put the top back on and stick in a green straw for the stem
- Serve with spoons and enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by! Come by on Tuesday to see the rest of our Halloween crafts!
