Fun Haunted House (Halloween)

Haunted House

Nothing screams horror like a haunted house. Although my house is more cartoon than fright!

This is a fun, simple to construct Halloween breakfast or light lunch and my boys were delighted with the house but not happy until I added the bats for full effect.

Healthy creative food for kids

Recipe

– 3 slices of bread. Ours is bakery so on the small side.

– 1 large egg

– 1 small tomato

– 1 large baby spinach leaf – for the bat

Method

1. Cut a large piece for the centre of the house. It’s a very forgiving design as you can cut pretty much however it comes and it’ll look OK.

Haunted House - 1 Bread (1 of 1)

 

2. I used another piece of bread for a tower.

Haunted House - 2b (1 of 1)

 

3. Then the 3rd piece of bread to make two side towers.

Haunted House - 3b (1 of 1)

 

I added triangles to the top of them for roofs. I also cut corners off the first slice of bread and placed them on the top edge of the large piece. It just seemed to give it better balance.

4. I cooked the egg yolk and white separately. The yolk I cut into shapes to make the windows.

 

 Haunted House - 5 egg windows (1 of 1)

5. Then I used a slice of cheese cut to make a door.

Haunted House - 6b (1 of 1)

 

6. And sliced pieces from the tomato to make window frames and a window for the door.

Haunted House - 7b (1 of 1)

 

7. I used the white of the egg to make the moon.

Haunted House - 8 moon (1 of 1)

 

And some pieces of bread for the steps.

8. Then I sprinkled some oat bran as stars.

Black food is very limited so I have decided to work the contrast the other way round for Halloween this year and do light objects on a dark background …

This is my cute, fun and simple apple bat.
