Is it teething time for your little one?
To balance out all the sweets and junk food your little ones will no doubt get in their trick or treat bag tomorrow night, it's always a good idea to have some healthier snacks on hand. It's also a good way to keep little hands busy.
1. Apple Monsters
These were so much fun to make and the girls just wanted to eat them before we had finished.
What you'll need: 
  • 1 apple cut into quarters
  • Almond slivers (about 10)
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Green food dye
  • 2 toothpicks
  1. Cut the apple into quarters.
  2. Cut out the mouth and stick the almond slivers into the flesh.
  3. We used green food dye on the mini marshmallows to make the eyes and placed them into the flesh using toothpicks.
  4. Eat them up fast, as the apple will turn brown fast.
2. Banana Ghost
The ghosts are nice and simple to make and might even nudge a reluctant fruit eater to give it a try!
What you'll need: 
  • 3 Cheerios
  • Half a banana
  1.  Two Cheerios as eyes and one as a nose…
3. Mini Pumpkin
These are very simple and fun to make. 
What you'll need: 
  • 1 mandarin orange
  • Stick of celery
  1. Peel your orange and place a small stick of celery into the centre.
4. Jack-O’-Lantern Oranges
A fun twist on a carved pumpkin.
What you'll need: 
  • 1 Orange
  • Assortment of fruits
  • Toothpicks
  •  We filled the lanterns with sticks of the girls' favorite fruits.
