Halloween is the time of year when kids and adults alike exercise their creativity and imagination, often in the form of being gross, creepy, and scary. If this isn’t a childlike holiday, we don’t know what is! It’s no surprise that Halloween has become the favorite holiday of many adults. Hey, no gifts to wrap, cards to send, or birds to cook. It’s simply about having fun. Now you may be a bit too tall for trick-or-treating, but that doesn’t mean you have to eat healthy (boring) grown-up food at your Halloween party. Have some fun getting creative with your menu. From Boogers on a Stick to Kitty Litter Cake, we’ll get you started with 9 gross and gruesome ideas that are guaranteed to get your guests having a good time!

I made the kitty litter cake for a staff lunch. What fun watching the faces of folks wondering what “THAT” was doing on the table. Some people wouldn’t touch the cake. Even after assurances that everything was edible and the box was new. Somebody made the best comment, “I have to scoop that stuff everyday, there is no way I’m eating it!” I asked her if I scooped out some cake and took out the ___ (tootsie rolls) would she try some of the cake, and she did….reluctantly. Thanks for a great recipe. This will become a tradition!

Kim & Jason,
I love your inspiration, food ideas, comics & practical child inspired website. I received information from WCCAA conference details in February. I am a Administrator at a child care center in Cambridge, WI. I can not wait to see you at the conference & sit back and enjoy the keynote. I may need to purchase your book early to read before February. It is too tempting. I look foward to sharing your website with the families we serve & of course my team of Early Childhood Professionals. I also look foward to being on your email list.
With Appreciaton & Gratitude,
PleasanTime Child Care Center, Inc.
