Kids Halloween Charcuterie Board

With Halloween possibly looking different for my kids this year, I wanted to do something fun for them. I teamed up with some other bloggers to share some spooky and sweet treat ideas and figured a charcuterie board would be exciting. It was so simple to throw together, the kids were even able to help.

What Did I Use

The most important thing to remember is that you can literally use whatever you want to make this. For the one I made I picked up several things from the store: mini oranges, pretzel sticks, candy eyeballs, Oreos (looked high and low for orange filled, but it’s apparently not a thing this year), Reece’s Pieces, candy corn, cheese puffs, popcorn (I did a mic of white cheddar and caramel). All of the items were easily located at the grocery store, the biggest struggle was keeping them away from the kids until the day I made the board.

Putting The Charcuterie Board Together

This is where the kids came into play. I let them help me grab some handfuls of everything and put it in piles. We peeled the oranges and used a pretzel stick to replicate a stem and placed them sporadically around the board. We broke 3 pretzel sticks in half per Oreo and used them as legs, putting 3 on each side. Ones we had the “spiders” created, we added our candy eyeballs to bring them to life.

Enjoy!

Finally, the kids were able to dig in! I did take it to the kitchen table so nothing was dropped. They all gathered around and cleared everything in the charcuterie board!

Not Ur Average Mom Of 5

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
