As you may know, every Saturday we do some kind of art. We do our best to teach the kids that art can be so many things including delicious so, during the month of Oct., every week, we make edible art! What we make mostly changes from year to year with the exception of the “rotten eggs”, (or as the kids started calling them “zombie eggs” because after they eat them they pretend they turn into zombies) they’re always the first thing we make. They look pretty cool, they are very easy to make and always a big hit. This week we also made a chocolate cookie haunted house as well, found at Wal-Mart for around $10. We have found and made so many fun Halloween foods over the years and it’s one of our favorite holiday traditions. Below you’ll find the details on how to make “rotten/zombie eggs” and screenshots and photos of other things we have made and/or found over the years! I do apologize for some of the photos on this post (and others) they may be distorted a bit they’re very old photos. I have try my best to clear them up, but I’m not the best at it, none the less I really hope you enjoy these fun and yummy activities with your kiddos!
Rotten/ Zombie Eggs
This is a very simple and fun activity. All you need is food coloring, water, and boiled eggs. Once your eggs are fully cooked crack them all around (DO NOT peel) then pat dry gently so the shell doesn’t fall off to much and add your drops of coloring randomly. Roll the eggs around for about 10 seconds, rinse, peel and eat! That’s it! So easy, so fun! We also make rainbow eggs using the same technique just adding more colors. It was the only way we could get the youngest to eat eggs in the beginning and now it’s just a thing we do to add some fun to breakfast!
Using the same technique with red coloring for veins and green and/or blue you can make eye ball eggs as well! After you have done the red coloring, peeled and rinsed your eggs simply dip the egg in the blue/green coloring slightly for a few seconds then gently dab dry. Before rinsing again dip the egg into green and blue repeatedly for longer than before until you get the darker color in the middle for the pupils. Also try out the eyeball deviled eggs! We painted on our red lines with a paint brush I use specifically for these type of things and colored our yolks with basic food dye. We also use black olives rather than the green pictured below.
More Halloween Deliciousness!
Below are photos of things we have made and/or found online over the years! Hopefully these will bring you and yours as much fun and joy as they have us over the years! The Jell-O brain was made from a mold found at the dollar tree and we got the speckle effect by spraying the mold with not stick spray prior to adding the Jell-O. The cookie house was found at Wal-Mart for around $10, they had both chocolate and gingerbread haunted house kits. The cat sugar cookies were also found at Wal-Mart for under $10, they also had sugar skull ones. Click images for more details.
