I thought it would be fun to do a Halloween craft with food. JDaniel and I headed to the Fresh Market salad bar and I had him select foods he would like to try.
We ended up with a variety of foods. Some were brand new and others were old favorites.
I placed all the ingredients in an ice cube tray and showed him how to create a pumpkin face using some of the ingredients in orange pepper slices with celery stems.
The tray contains edamame, chickpeas, pumpkin seeds, red cabbage, yellow squash, fried wanton strips, mushrooms, celery, uncooked corn, carrot shavings, cauliflower, pineapple, raisins, and cheerios.
Then he started to create faces of his own while taste testing the ingredients. JDaniel said that the wanton was filled with many holes that looked like many eyes. I thought that was a great idea.
He didn’t finish everything. We ended up wrapping the tray with the remaining food up with plastic. JDaniel said he wanted to do it again at dinner time.
I was happy to see that he tried many of the new foods. The chickpeas and wantons have become a new favorite.
P.S. The Halloween Traditions link up event will include four link ups. They are Halloween Costumes, Halloween Foods, Halloween Crafts and Traditions or Memories. I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this link up that begins Oct. 24th and ends Nov. 2nd.
