Fruits

Make healthy and natural treats out of fruits. For instance, with a marker, you can draw faces on pieces of kiatkiat and you instantly have mini jack-o-lanterns! Or why not stick a couple of chocolate chips on peeled bananas to make—wait for it—boo-nanas! Super cute, right?

 

Baked or Chilled Goodies

Make your Halloween preparations just as fun for you and your family! Baking your own set of cupcakes, brownies, or biscuits with your kids is a great idea. Or if you are more of a chill person, make a cool treat like an ice cream sandwich made of a small scoop of ice cream between two biscuits. Just get creative with how you present them and voila!–you have a boo-tifully prepared alternative to those sweets bought from the grocery!

Ditch single-use for single serve! Hire manong sorbetero for ice cream, or get someone who sells cotton candy or fishballs and have him serve up the treats for you. You can even have him dress up for Halloween to add to the fun!

 

Homemade Crafts
