During the holidays many of our KES Club volunteers enjoy doing something a little special for their students. Sometimes it’s a big pancake breakfast, a special smoothie day, or delicious muffins and other times it’s simply making the food you always serve, festive. Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to get into the spirit then by making a “spooktacular breakfast” for your students…they’ll love it! Try some of these ideas over the next few days in your KES Club.
Healthy Halloween Mummy Tray: For little ones, you can cook the carrots until they are to the desired softness then add the cheese for a yummy but not-too-scary mummy encounter.
Halloween Pumpkin Oranges: For our Halloween-themed party, we used these Halloween pumpkin oranges to make a pumpkin patch on a tray.
Banana Ghosts: These ghouls take mere minutes to scare up, have only two ingredients, and require no cooking.
School Approved Frankenstein: A monster made of grapes adds whimsy to your fruit snack.
