1. Banana Ghosts
Bananas are definitely a favorite kids’ fruit, and these little ghosts are simple enough for your youngest sous chefs to create. Simply peel a banana and cut it in half. Add chocolate or carob chip eyes and a mouth. You can use the same size chips for the eyes and the mouth or use mini chocolate chips for the eyes. Stand up the ghosts on a plate and serve.
2. Funky Apple and Almond Mouths
Assure your little ones that choosing this crunchy, healthy snack instead of sugary candy will prevent them from having mouths and teeth that look like these! Cut wedges from an apple. Leaving “lips,” carefully cut into the skin of the apple, making sure not to pierce through the whole wedge. Cut out the mouth and remove the apple skin and flesh. Use a knife or toothpick to make small holes in the open mouth, then add slices or shards of almond (I blanched and peeled mine first).
3. Clementine Pumpkins
Another easy and very visually appealing Halloween treat that’s so cute, it could be a centerpiece! Peel several clementines. Press a small piece of celery into the top to act as the pumpkin stem. You could also try using oranges and making a pumpkin patch with both sizes.
