Here at Tutor Doctor WNY, we firmly believe that almost any activity can be made educational if approached deliberately. One of the most rewarding educational activities is baking. From reading recipes to using math skills, baking is a great way to show how the things students are taught in school directly relate to everyday life. Adventures in the kitchen also yield delicious treats, and what better way to celebrate Halloween than by baking some seasonal treats? The following are some of our favorite recipes that allow your artistic side to shine through.
These delicious shortbread cookies make a creepy treat with a nail made out of an almond! One way to up the scare-factor is to add a few drops of green food coloring to the batter, which will yield witch fingers that look like they could belong to the Wicked Witch of the West!
What’s green and fizzy and deliciously gross all over? Swamp juice, a blend of lemonade, green food dye, and gummy creatures, looks like something you scooped out of an industrial waste land fill. Younger kids can help you count out how many of each kind of gummy you need, while older kids can help prepare the tapioca.
You might be scared of spiders…but these delicious spidery treats wouldn’t scare anybody!
This super-easy, classic recipe allows even the youngest cooks to lend a hand in the process.
