Favorite Halloween Treats for Kids

Monday, October 25, 2010

For some reason, autumn gets me excited to find fun projects to try with my kids.  I love the time we spend cooking together and I love the confidence they gain from performing cooking tasks by themselves--spreading the frosting, adding ingredients, decorating, etc.  I really feel like the kitchen is a great place to develop a child's sense of independence in a safe way (with Mom by their side).     This post is a compilation of some of my favorite Halloween treats that we've created together over the last couple of years.   Happy cooking!    (By the way, don't mind the imperfect pictures.  These are all 100% kid decorated!)

It's so fun to cook with the kids and see how excited they get when they create something. There are so many fun Halloween recipes too. Looks like you and the kids have been having lots of fun. I missed the post with your decorated rice cakes. This is a great idea for my son who is allergic to wheat. He loves rice cakes and would love decorating them. Looking forward to the owl cupcakes.

So much cuteness, I especially love the mice and owls :)

those owls are adorable... I'd have to carefully figure out how to make them without peanut butter though...!

As for your thought about the link up... I've considered it too! Let me do some more thinking on it... making sure I can manage starting that up right now :)
