One of my favorite parts of Halloween is all the fun Halloween themed foods. A few years ago I did a Halloween series, where each day we bought and read a fun Halloween book, and then we did a food related activity that corresponded with the story. We did a ton of Halloween activities, including Pumpkin Carving, making Witches Brew, and booking friends with treats and Boo Bark, or something else.
The book we read before doing this fun filled food activity was Where’s My Mummy?
I let my kids make their own mummies, and not only was it tons of fun, but they ate so much better too! This makes for a fun and fast meal idea for Halloween night, when the kids just want to get out the door to collect candy, but you want them to actually eat something not full of sugar!
To make these, simply gather your ingredients, then cut your dough into strips (you need about 3 per dog). I used my Zyliss Handheld Pizza Wheel to cut the dough, it was so fast and easy.
Then I gave each kid a plate with their brat and their strips of dough and let them make their own mummy dog dinner. They really had fun with it. Just be sure to mark where you put whose or you might have trouble later identifying one mummy dog from the next.
Then I baked those mummy dogs right up. They really do look like mummy’s when they are all wrapped up like that.
They turned out awesome. I put a dab of ketchup on for eyes.
Isn’t it fun how they are all different? I let the kids add their own eyes with mustard and ketchup. Then they ate them.
And to make this activity even more fun, we read another great book that encourages math application! I know, I am so that mom. But I love cooking and math together. Cooking with my kids is the perfect way to show them some practical math application. We do fractions by doubling recipes. We add and subtract. It is fun, and helps them really get the concepts. If you have elementary age kids, check this book out!
