We had a Halloween party for the kids this year, ages ranging from 2-8. We decked the house out in Halloween decor; spiderwebs, spiders, pumpkins, orange, green, and purple lights, colorful balloons, jack-o-lanterns, spooky props, and much more. They played a variety of Halloween and Fall games, some purchased from Target and others were just good old fashioned seasonal favorites. I had a mini cauldron full of treats and spooky food but good enough to eat. Laughter and surprises filled the air, as I passed out prizes and each took their share. I had bought a couple of goodies from the Dollar Store for each, and as they played they won prizes for their great feat. The night ended pleasantly with a Halloween movie as they all slowly drifted off to sleep.
Since we are working on eating healthier I thought it would be a good idea to share healthy foods you could prepare this holiday for your feast. I found these wonderful ideas for inspiration. Using a few simple ingredients you can create spooky treats. Nuts and apples for a mouth, carrots and almonds as a witch’s fingers, string cheese and pretzel sticks as a broom, carrots with cucumbers and broccoli as a pumpkin, and a nice vegetable selection for a body. Happy haunting…….
