Spooky Cookies

Yummy cookies cut into spooky shapes!

Cookie recipe

  • 225g (8oz) butter, softened
  • 110g (4oz) Caster sugar
  • 275g (10oz) Plain flour

Optional

  • Add one teaspoon of spices (cinnamon, mixed spice, ginger, etc)
  • 75g White or Milk chocolate chips

 

  • Coloured Icing pens

Method

  • Preheat the oven at 170C or gas mark 3.
  • Cream the butter in a large bowl or in a food mixer until it is soft. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Sift the flour into the mixture and add optional ingredients. Bring the mixture together until it forms a dough.
  • Using a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface roll out the dough and use Halloween Cookie cutters to cut out spooky shapes. (This is especially fun for little hands and also works on their fine motor skills).
  • Bake them in the oven for around 15 mins until they are golden brown and slightly firm on top.
  • Place the cookies onto a cooling rack and leave them there for around 15 mins. 
  • Once cool use the optional icing pens to draw fun and colourful Halloween creations on top!

Funky Table Decorations

This one is really simple and fun, especially if you are having a Halloween party. Get some different Halloween themed table toppers like streamers, confetti and some different coloured paper. Green, orange and black and work together with the kids to create a spooky and creative table decoration.

Autumn Leaf Art

This one is super simple and gives you a fun reason to get outdoors exploring!

Go for a walk as a family and collect lots of Autumn leaves, twigs, acorns etc. Then simply create your own Autumn Leaf art when you get home. Another fun idea is to print off different Halloween or Autumn colouring pages and use the leaves to fill in the images.
