As the weather cools, it is time to move the fun indoors. And what better place to spend a chilly day than in the kitchen? If you haven’t given your child the chance to play chef in a while, now if the time. There are plenty of fun, fall treats that you can make with your child. Fun and tasty—how can you beat that? Check out some of our recommendations below and get to cooking!
Nothing says fall quite like caramel apples. And while the ones you can buy at the store sure are tasty, this treat is pretty easy to make. Older children should be able to complete the whole process with you. If you have younger children, let them take over with the decorating after you get the caramel on the apples. In many ways, making this treat is like completing a craft, especially if you go all out with your decorations and toppings.
Once again, this is a treat that is also rather crafty. Oreos, peanut butter cups, and edible googly eyes—what isn’t to love? This treat is cute, fun, and perfect for making with the kids. If you are planning to throw a Halloween party, they will make a great addition, and you can get some help for the kids while preparing. The hardest part? Convincing yourself to eat the adorable bats when you are done!
This is a great option for younger kids whose motor skills are not to the point that they can complete small, precise actions. Since this is a mix, all you really need to do is pour, scoop, and mix—things that most younger toddlers will be able to do just fine. This mix is great for Halloween parties, movie nights, and more. The whole family is sure to love it.
