Creepy Crudité

Halloween Is just over a week away and I must say, everything is starting to feel a little spooooooooooky! Do you have plans with your children for this Halloween? Will you be dressing up? Hosting any get-togethers? Trick or Treating? When my children were younger, we all would dress up for Halloween. I always looked forward to the different costume ideas they would come up with. Costumes included witches, pirates, princesses, ghosts, football players, chefs (one of my favourites) and more! Even before Halloween day, my family would spend an evening (or a couple) carving pumpkins, roasting pumpkin seeds, and listening to eerie Halloween music.

Whether you’re having a get-together with friends and family or you just want a fun Halloween-themed food idea to make with your children, try making a Creepy Crudité! Using your favourite cut fruits and vegetables you and your children can create Halloween scenes. If you’re looking for even more fun haunted Halloween ideas, has some great healthy treats that your little monsters are sure to love! Follow this link for some petrifying party treats:

Last year, Kids & Company held their first Creepy Crudité contest. All of our locations across the country were able to submit pictures of Halloween-inspired fruit and veggie platters they created for afternoon snack. Waterloo Tech Town was our winner last year with the chilling creation below!

Be sure to take a picture of your best Halloween creations and share them with me @KidcoKitchen.
