Healthy Halloween snacks can be just as much fun as all the candy and cupcakes! We made these great cupcake witches’ shoe cupcake toppers and so this week we thought we would steer towards something a little more healthy!
These witches’ broom fruit skewers are so easy to make and you most likely have everything you need at home!
Fussy eaters will not need extra convincing when these are served up!! Promise!
Ingredients: Witches broom fruit skewers:
A selection of your favorite fruit cut into the right size. Please note I added whole grapes to these, but if you children are a little younger you may want to halve or quarter them up… this is a FANTASTIC grape slicing tool you can buy from Amazon!
- String – we used natural twine like this – to give it that rough appearance
- Wooden skewers. If you are worried about the pointy ends feel free to cut the points off once the skewers are made.
- Glue or hot glue. We have a hot glue gun and for things like this, it works brilliantly!! You know all the craft stuff you don’t need… this is not one of those. I use my glue gun every day!!
- The grape slicer below…
I have included an instruction video at the end to show you exactly how we made our skewers.
TIP: When making the final string finish around the broomsticks, hot glue/glue the start and wait for it to dry before continuing around. This way you do not have to hold down the start of the string whilst you wrap it!
Not difficult at all and I promise the kids and grown ups will LOVE this!
It is one of those ideas that translate well into kids’ healthy snacks and fancy food for a Halloween party with your friends!
