When it comes to Halloween treats for our boys, my husband goes for sugar and I try to go for nutrition. I guess we have to balance each other out right? Without him, my kids would have such a boring life!
We decided to go to target as a family and get our Halloween treats; we divided, we conquered! He got candy and I got these Mini Babybel® cheese treats, in the cheese and meats section. The boys loved the packaging because they have mummies and vampires! I mean who doesn’t love mummies and vampires? I love the fact that they are 100% real cheese which adds wholesome nutrition to the fun! So it’s a win-win situation.
After we got home I wanted the boys to have extra fun with the Mini Babybel® cheese treats, so we decided to create these super cute monsters!
Halloween Cheesy Monsters-
I had the boys open their own cheese because it’s super easy and I love to let them be as independent as possible. Then they each gave me their cheese, using a knife I cut different smiles on them and then let them use some pre-cut lunch meat to put it on the smile, and it looks like a hanging tongue.
After that, they used toothpicks to add marinara sauce inside the smile, to make it look extra creepy! Like the monsters just had a snack.
Then we used sliced black olives to make eyes or a single eye, depending on the type of monster. Get creative with it! Our single eyed monsters had a mustard center because the creepier the better.
Just like that, we had a fun-filled afternoon of shopping, crafting and eating a nutritious yet delicious Halloween treat! I would say I got more points than my husband this time :).
A Creepy Surprise
If you don’t feel like a whole afternoon of crafting, or you just don’t have the time for it, another great idea is to add a little monster on each of your kid’s lunches. Without the kids, these only take two minutes to make and they will be over the moon excited to find such a creepy and fun surprise in their lunch box! See? You don’t always have to think candy when it comes to Halloween treats!
