Halloween, also known as Hallow’s Eve, is about to come. Other than interesting and amusing tradition of dressing up and carving pumpkins, there is also a fun way to spice this day even more – by making simple, colorful and healthy snacks for children. You can also steal these ideas for kids’ birthdays or similar parties. Count on empty plates because children will undoubedtly love it.
You need one banana and a chocolate. Peel banana and cut it in half so you get two parts, each with one flat end and one round end. Melt chocolate and draw eyes and lips on a banana to look like a ghost. Leave the chocolate to cool. Banana reminds you of ghost, isn’t it?
Egg or spider
Cook egg and cult it in half. Remove egg yolk and fill egg halves with tuna pate. To make spider use olive (pit olive!) and cut it in half lenghtwise. One olive half will serve as the body so place it on the top of stuffing. Cut the other half of olive into 6 stripes and form legs of the spider. And there it is – delicious and scary spider!
Suggestion for tuna pate:
Take one small can of tuna and mix it with one cooked egg. Mix until you it becomes homogeneous. You can add other ingredients if you like, depending on your (children’s) taste. Healthy snacks have never been so easy to prepare.
Healthy and fun apple
Your kids will need a healthy dessert too, right? Get one small apple and give it a thorough wash. Cut it into half and then make thick slices. Stab each slice with a lollipop stick (or whatever type of stick you can find). Dip apples on the stick into melted chocolate and sprinkle with coconut or flakes. Put them aside in a glass until chocolate stiffens.
You can use any seasonal fruit and do the same, best of all, your kids can help decorate and pick the ones they’ll eat later.
Have fun and enjoy!
