Kids’ Halloween Menu



We’re getting our Kids’ Halloween Menu in order and these are the foods we’ll be serving! The key for us is easy (few ingredients) and quick assembly.

Mummy Dogs
We found the instructions to make these in several locations, but I love the pictures at the Instructables. All you need are 1) hot dogs, 2) Pillsbury Cresent Roll dough and 3) mustard.

Monster Finger Food
We found this recipe at Family Fun which has some really great recipes. All you need are: 1) string cheese, 2) bell peppers (hello vegetable!), and 3) cream cheese to secure the “nails.”

Vampire Cookies


LOVE these vampire cookies. They were surprisingly easy to make and especially delicious right out of the oven. Also, you can reuse this recipe next month when the new Twilight movie hits the theater.
Have a delicious Halloween!


Have a little one who gets a little scared during Halloween?

This beautifully illustrated book explains that fear is a normal emotion and helps children understand it’s OK if they don’t feel brave all the time. It gives suggestions for how to cope when they get scared and words to express their feelings. Create your own fun and enchanting personal story that addresses your child’s specific needs.
