Everyday Mom's Meals: Spooky Treat

Spooky Treat

As soon as Alex's birthday is past us, I always feel like we're in a downhill coast to what I refer to as "the holiday rush"; and that includes all of them from Halloween through New Year's. So starting on September 17th, I am looking for fun things to include in Alex's Halloween celebration, and all the weeks leading up to it. Lunch box treats, after school snacks, craft ideas, projects--anything that will enhance my little man's 2nd favorite holiday :) What's a great place to find ideas in all these categories, and more? Pinterest, of course!! I've shared my love for this handy dandy site w/ you before, and that is where I found this super cute idea for a quick, and adorable after school snack. I knew Alex would get a huge kick out of these, and they didn't disappoint. He giggled and smiled as he ate every last bite :) The funniest part was when he took a bit so one "tooth" was missing, turned to me and said "Mommy, it looks like me after loosing my teeth." Lol  So if you are looking for some inspiration for your little ghost or goblin, head over to Pinterest and see what great things you can find. A good place to start would be my Halloween board--I'm always adding things I find and want to try myself!

Mouthy Treats

1 Red Apple, sliced
Peanut Butter
Mini Marshmallows

Spread peanut butter on slices of apple. On one, put marshmallows, resembling teeth. Add another slice on top, peanut butter side down. You can try to do this very neatly, but I think the peanut butter "oozing" a little makes them look even spookier :)

*I think Nutella would work great in place of the peanut butter too.*
