Two Fun Halloween Treats for Kids

Pumpkin Oranges for Halloween 

This recipe is so simple that I can’t even call it a recipe, but it is so so incredibly cute.

You can easily turn a clementine into a pumpkin by peeling it and taking tiny pieces of sliced celery and adding them to the top of the clementine for the pumpkin’s stem.

Halloween Mummy Dogs Recipe

While I want to make Halloween dinner easy, I also want to make it fun! We only get one night a year to dress up and be silly so why not make it as fun as possible, right!?

These Mummy Dogs are super easy and fun and take only 10-15 minutes to prepare with 15 minutes of cooking time.

3 ingredients + 15 minutes = easiest meal EVER!

Two Fun Halloween Treats for Kids


  • 1 8oz can of crescent rolls
  • 10 hot dogs
  • mustard or ketchup (optional)

Directions to Make Mummy Dogs

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°

Step 2

Roll out crescent rolls and divide them into 4 rectangle pieces.

Mash the perforated edges in the middle of the rectangles together.

Cut each rectangle piece lengthwise to create 10 thin strips of dough.

Step 3

Wrap 3-4 pieces of dough around each hot dog to make a “mummy”. Be sure to leave a space about 1/2 an inch from the top of the hot dog to make the mummy’s face.

Step 4

Bake mummy dogs for about 15 minutes or until the dough is a golden color. Then draw a “face” on the mummy with ketchup or mustard!


How did your mummy dogs turn out for lunch?
