31 Days of #Halloween with Kids-Day Eight: Fall Colored Bouquet of Flowers

We’re on Day 8 of 31 Days of Halloween and we bought a beautiful bouquet of flowers all in pretty fall colors from a local resident who grows them in her garden.  Is there a person alive that doesn’t love flowers? I don’t want to meet them.  Kids especially love picking them & smelling them, so if you have a place you can do that, pick them together!  You can discuss the different shapers, the…

31 Days of #Halloween with Kids–Day Seven: Halloween Quesadillas

On Day 7 of our 31 Days of Halloween we have Halloween cut-out quesadillas.  Simply use a cookie cutter before or after you make your quesadillas. If you want the eyes & mouth cut out like the ones below you’ll have to do it by hand & it’s best to do it before you cook so you don’t accidently cut the cheese out. Remember, this is supposed to be a really simple & quick thing…

31 Days of #Halloween with Kids–Day Six: Mummy Pasta Bowls

On Day 6 of our 31 Days of Halloween we have Mummy Pasta!  As you can see there’s not much to it.  I used fettuccine because it’s flatter & looks more like mummy wrapping.  For the eyes I used slices of black olive.  You might want to add a little olive oil to the noodles to keep them from sticking as you lay them back & forth like strips on a mummy in the bowl. …

31 Days of #Halloween with Kids–Day Five: Hard Boiled Egg Ghosts

On Day 5 of our 31 Days of Halloween we awoke to find:  Hard Boiled Egg Ghosts.  The kids loved these & they rarely eat hard boiled eggs but as soon as they saw them they wanted them! Another win for mom. Boil non-fresh eggs your favorite way, peel, then cut off a very small portion of the bottom of the egg so they sit flat on the plate. Take a heavier duty straw (I…

31 Days of #Halloween with Kids–Day Four: Hummus with Ghostly Naan Dippers

For Day 4 of our 31 Days of Halloween series we have: Hummus with Ghostly Naan Dippers, or as I like to say, hummus surrounded by mini naan ghosts, attending a red pepper bon fire. The kids thought this was hilarious and one of them that never eats hummus actually ate it! That’s a win for me. Obviously you don’t need real directions for this.  I bought Stonefire Naan Dippers that I noticed just so…

31 Days of #Halloween with Kids – Day Three: Frightful Fruit

For Day 3 of our 31 Days of Halloween series we have, frightful fruit, which consists of pumpkin clementines, banana ghosts, and apple mouths. This was the after school snack today but it’d make a great breakfast as well. Silje (7) helped me put this together in a matter of minutes.  These were all things we had in our house already. Chances are you might too! Warning: Please leave the marshmallows & seeds for the…

31 Days of #Halloween with Kids – Day Two: Monstrously Monsterific Jell-O Cups

For Day 2 of our 31 Days of Halloween series I created these monstrously monsterific Jell-O cups while the kids were at school. If you have younger kids you can easily do them at nap time or after they go to bed.  It took roughly 1/2 hour to get these done. If you’re short on time you can buy pre-made Jell-O or gelatin cups from the grocery store if available OR you can use regular…

31 Days of #Halloween with Kids–Day One: Jack O’ Lantern Clementines

We’re attempting to do 31 days of Halloween here at First-Time-Mommy “headquarters” (which actually just means my tiny house in Michigan lol). I have three kids, and one is teetering on the teen years, so I’m trying to go all out and make the most of our time before my child evolves into a teenager & might not be as interested in doing crafts with mom. That got me to thinking; maybe I should share…
