Veggie Skeleton

You know your kids are going to have way too much candy on Halloween, so here's a healthy snack idea for a change. Added bonus: Because kids like the idea of eating this helpless guy's "bones" (ewww!?), they just may eat more veggies than usual. A healthy snack with entertainment value. A keeper!

Head--lettuce leaves, sliced olives, veggie dip in a small bowl
Body--celery, baby carrots, bell pepper, mushrooms, cherry or grape tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers

Arrange the veggies on a platter in the shape of a skeleton, top with an appropriate sized bowl of veggie dip for the head. (I'm sure your presentation will look better than mine. Note to self: skip the waxed paper next time. I'm not really sure WHY I used it in the first place.)

Take a picture of your final Veggie Man, print it up, then let your kids recreate him with the left-over veggies the next day.

I found this vegetable skeleton idea on the internet last year, but I'll be darned if I can find it now to give appropriate credit.

  2. Laura - may I use the photo in a downloadable booklet I'm putting together on green halloween, please? I'm not selling the book - it's a freebie, and of course I'd credit you and include a live link to your blog.

  3. Whoa! That looks amazing! I'm gonna tell my wife about this veggie skeleton thing, so that our kids will gonna like eating vegetables now. My wife and I have been struggling and finding ways to make our kids eat healthier food every day. It's kinda hard, but with the help of our doctors and dentists here in Greenville, SC, eventually veggies will gonna be our kids' ultimate favorite.

  16. This is super cute! Thanks for sharing. I love seeing fun and creative ways to serve things. While trying to find a link to your picture (it's all over Pinterest, but not always linking back to you) I found one on the Kraft website. Maybe that's where you first saw it. One way or the other though... it's SUPER cute! Thanks for sharing!

  19. I found your veggie skeleton on Pintrest and thought it would be cool to do with my students. Don't apologize for the waxed paper. It's the funniest part. He looks like he's laying on an exam table and that's the exam paper underneath him!

  21. What did you use to make the dip??
    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think I may have used Ranch dressing in this photo. Just use your favorite veggie dip.

  68. Picking Up Corner Pins and other Single Pin Spares

    While it may sound easy, sometimes single pin spares can be tricky. Some tournaments that have traced spares find that as much as 50% of spares are missed! The key to single pin spares is to be accurate. A straight ball is more accurate than a curve release.

    If you use a big curve, get a plastic ball and/or learn to release the ball straight. With the straight ball, the ball reaction does not depend on lane conditions. Straight on a dry lane and straight on an oily one lo
