Halloween Treat

I love celebrating fall events with my children. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because my kids get so excited about it! Here’s a short tutorial on how to make this adorable little edible (and healthy) Frankenstein that I made for my oldest son. He was so excited when he saw it!

1. Gather your ingredients: You will need 3 kiwi fruit, some purple grapes, cucumber skin, banana, blueberries, and julienne carrots.

*You end up using only small amounts of some of the above fruits and veggies-I ended up bringing the rest to work to munch on the next day.


2. Peel the kiwi and slice it so that mainly the green areas are visible. Cut your grapes in half length wise, and assemble like below.


3. Place the banana and blueberries on the kiwi to make the eyes. Assemble the carrots like mine below for Frankenstein’s “scar”. Use the peels of the cucumber and the kiwi for the mouth and side details as shown below.


4. Here’s my favorite part: Accessorize! You can find some cute and inexpensive Halloween décor at places like Target or even the grocery store. I used these adorable rings and finger puppets to jazz things up a bit. My kids loved this! Try this at home, and let me know how it goes!
