Today I'm sharing another fun little edible craft project that is perfect for giving out to little trick or treaters - tasty ghost bogies! These little treats make a great healthier alternative to chocolate and are perfect for Halloween parties too.
A few years ago we went trick or treating for the first time. This was something that we had never taken part in before, as here in the UK Halloween doesn't have quite the same holiday status as it does over in the US. It's becoming a bigger deal every year here though and a couple of years ago I decided to embrace it - there's a lot of fun to be had in creating spooky fun food and dressing up! I was pleasantly surprised to find that trick or treating can be a lovely community building activity too. People opened their doors to us with so much enthusiasm and we met several people that we went on to chat to when we saw them out and about all the year around.
When I made the decision that we'd give trick or treating a go, I thought that it would be a great idea to concentrate on the giving side of it as much as possible, so we always put a bit of extra effort into our trick or treat offerings. I know that parents will be very careful of what they will allow their children to take when out trick of treating, so I avoid giving out homemade foods or opened packaging, but there are still plenty of fun ways to dress up food whilst keeping it unopened and in it's original pack.
I shared some cute little ghostly raisin boxes (which are perfect for giving out to trick or treaters) here on the blog recently, and today's fun idea is along similar lines - yogurt covered raisins dressed up as ghost bogies! This rather revolting idea has always been a huge hit with my boys, they love anything gross and it really is all in the name!
These are really easy to make, it takes just a few minutes to transform a multipack of yogurt covered raisins into frightful ghost bogies!
Yoghurt Raisin Ghost Bogies
- treat size bags of yogurt covered raisins
- A4 paper for printing
Start by printing off the labels - click here to download my free printable template.
Cut each sheet of labels into 4.
Fold each label over a bag of yogurt raisins (see below) with the label facing outwards and staple it to the top of the bag along the folded edge of the paper.
Repeat until you have labelled all of your yogurt raisin bags.
Place in a basket or bowl and get ready to give them out when the trick or treaters come knocking!
