Six Spooky Halloween Crafts & Treats
Frightening fun for the whole family
It’s spooky season and we’re ready to make all the creepy crafts and terrifying treats to celebrate Halloween—with wheat, of course. These crafts and treats are great to make with the kids, but they have no age limit. Getting into the spooky spirit is fun for everyone! Wheat is such a versatile ingredient; from mummy “Halloweenies” to green, gooey slime, you can have fun this Halloween with wheat.
Check out these creepy, crawly fingers! The perfect addition to your Halloween snack lineup, these Witch Finger Cookies will for sure get everyone in the Halloween mood. Blanched almonds make for a great fingernail, while strawberry or raspberry jam add a bloody look with a sweet taste. Use the remaining jam for dip when serving for and extra “bloody” element.
Slime has been all the craze for a few years and this recipe is great for kids because there’s no need for borax or glue. All you need is flour, water and dish soap for the slime base! Halloween-ify our original slime recipe by adding some green food colouring and googly eyes or mini plastic spiders for an extra spooky twist.
Take a break from all that sugary candy with Mummy Halloweenies! They’re super easy to make, come together fast and will take you back to your childhood of eating pigs in a blanket. Pack these for the kids’ lunch for an ultimate Halloween surprise.
These pumpkins can be the centre of your front porch Halloween display for years, without the worry that they’ll rot away. Use different sized bags to make all kinds of pumpkin sizes. These make a great gift for family and friends to celebrate spooky season.
Jack O Lantern Cake Pops are a perfect mix between a treat and a craft—you get to decorate a delicious, edible treat on a stick! If you’re in a pinch for time, try making these cake pops with a store-bought cake mix. Either way, they’ll be tasty and fun to decorate.
You don’t need much to make a keepsake that’ll last years! Flour, salt and hot water are the base of salt dough that you can customize with your own paint colours and glitter. Use ghost, pumpkin and bat templates for the outline of the dough and create a circle in the middle to fit a photo of your kids or furry children dressed up for Halloween.
