Halloween night is a fun time for children to get some tasty treats when they go Trick-or-Treating.  Here are some fun and healthy tasty treats to give children during the day.  They have all been kid tested and approved at my daycare and are also very fun to make in 10 or less easy steps.

A Ghostly BreakfastIMG_2907

What You Need:

Instructions:

  1. Boil water in a pot. Place the egg in the pot and make sure the egg is completely covered by water.
  2. Lower the temperature for 20 minutes. Carefully take out the egg and place it in a a bowl of ice cold water.
  3. Lightly toast a piece of bread and use a knife to cut out a rectangle for the “grave” and another rectangle with a triangular top for the “tombstone.”  Lay the “grave” flat on the dish.
  4. Use the black food marker to write “RIP” on the “tombstone.”  Lean the “tombstone” agains the “grave” to prop it up.
  5. Take the egg out of the water and carefully peel off the shell.
  6. Use a knife to cut straight across the bottom of the egg.
  7. Use the black food marker to draw a face on the “ghost.”  Place the “ghost” on top of the “grave.”
  8. Wash and dry two strawberries for the “flowers.”  Slice them longways with a knife and then place them around the “grave.”
  9. Enjoy!
