Too Old or Too Cold to Trick or Treat? Turn Your Food into a Halloween Feast!

By the time kids are in middle school some of them give up on trick or treating while others county the days until Halloween. And some years the weather is lousy for trick or treating, so we adapted out Halloween fun to suit the weather and the kids, and had a Teen Halloween Feast and re-named all of the food to suit the occasion. It doesn’t really matter what you make, it’s what you call it that counts! For example:

Warm artichoke dip became Goblin Guts...ew.

Shrimp Dip and crackers became Brain Dip and Crunchy Bones (onion dip would work for this, too).

This is true - if you call M&Ms clown poop, no one will eat them.

Fun fact:  if you call Skittles Creepy Clown Poop, no one will eat them.
Same goes for the grape tomatoes as Infected Eyeballs.

 

The cream cheese cupcakes dubbed Ghost Droppings were a big hit, though, so you never know!

Some face paint and a Halloween playlist or a movie (we’re wimps, we always watch It’s the The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!) and no one will miss the walk around the neighborhood in the rain.

 

Happy Halloween!
