Who says fruit isn’t a snack? Before you jump off this page and think “my kids are never going to buy this”, I want you to know that the NUMBER ONE food that gets eaten at any homeschool function, play-date, or gathering of families is the FRUIT! No, I ‘m not kidding! It always amazes parents when we see the kids running through the party with hand-fulls of fruit! When I see it I always think “Why did I just spend ten hours of my life baking?”
Seriously! Don’t skip on the fruit at your Halloween party! There are a a lot of fun things to do with them. Get your younger kids involved making the pumpkins out of mandarin oranges and bites of celery. Older kids can draw on the ghost and monster eyes with cookie frosting. Your teens can make the fruit dip, or make the funky apple mouths!
Fruit is fun… and festive!
