Spooky Spider Pizza
This pizza is super easy to make for Halloween. I love the contrast of colours from the pizza, the web made from ranch dressing, and the spiders made of olives. Oh, and it's super yummy, too!
Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume
I've seen a lot of creepy, gory costumes using a zipper and special effects kits to make people look like they have zombies underneath their unzipped skin. My costume this year is a take on that, but showing that under my skin, I am a girl made of gold.
Green Apple Monsters
Aren't these little monsters adorable? They're mostly fruit, so you won't feel too bad munching on them. Play around with their teeth and eye spacing to give them each some character. After slicing the apples, this would be a great edible craft for kids. Have fun!
Halloween Rice Balls
I love making Japanese rice balls (Onigiri). In Japan, it's very popular to go all out decorating rice balls any time of year. Over here, I do it more for Halloween. Enjoy this edible craft!
This "handy" snack was always my mum's lovely way of trying to give us something healthier than candy on Halloween. It is cute in a spooky way, and that always makes up for the lack of chocolate. Okay, part of the time!
These are tasty apple snacks that look like smiling mouths. They are so easy to make, kids will have fun assembling them... and devouring them!
