Halloween Treats! Cooking with the kids!

Updated: Oct 22, 2020

2020 Halloween celebrations, for the most part, will sadly be rather limited this year due to Covid-19 safety measures. Now let's face it, even though modern-day "Halloween" traditions are imported from the USA we've taken to celebrating Halloween like experts on this side of the pond.

At least it's an opportunity to dress up, who doesn't love a bit of fancy dress, eat sugary treats and in general have some good wholesome fun. This year should absolutely be no exception, albeit without the mass gatherings and perhaps trick or treating, and the kids can still have loads of fun. We've pulled together some great ideas for both kids and parents to enjoy so bring a little fun and magic back to the kitchen table with these tricks and treats for the little ones.
