Today I'd like to share with you one of the quickest things that you can do for a Halloween party table. Let's start with a couple of observations. Children love gingerbread men and biscuits. Children love icing.
Children love Halloween, and all the blood, guts and gore which goes with it. So here's the idea. Pick up one of the gingerbread men cutters you can now pick up from almost anywhere, and either with the children, or on your own, bake up a batch of gingerbread men. Next, make up some icing with some red food colouring. Can you guess where this is going yet?
Once the gingerbread men are cooked and cooled, snap their heads off! Arrange the gingerbread men on a plate, with their heads of the gingerbread men slightly detached on one side from the body, and then go to town filling the gap in with lots of red icing.
Of course, this idea can be adapted however you like. From breaking arms and legs, to mixing up green icing and decorating your Frankenstein gingerbread men. You might find this highly entertaining yourself, but no doubt your children will also enjoy being involved in destroying a few gingerbread men in the name of Halloween.
