Kids Corner | Ari’s Loft: Eating a Healthy Treat

300-ariHalloween Is Coming Soon!

As a big candy holiday we need to think of ways to stay healthy. Instead of buying candy, you could get single packets of gold fish or fruit snacks or Halloween pencils or glow in the dark neon necklaces. Another fun snack for Halloween is a caramel apple on a stick. I love caramel apples on a stick, especially on Halloween!
A fun craft to do on Halloween is to put some bling on your pumpkins, like shown:

  1. colored paint
  2. some gem stones
  3. glitter glue
  4. a fake spider
  5. a sharpie or a permanent marker

Enjoy your masterpiece!
It is fun for the whole family. For allages and make sure you have adultsupervision.

Eating a Healthy Treat

Eating Healthy is very important. I have been watching what I eat. How many of you have a little treat before you go to bed while watching a movie? While I am one of those people, I do know to only eat treats and that kind of stuff sometimes or if it is a special occasion. Now the summer is over I have been eating better. One of my favorite treats (and it’s healthy), is apples with cinnamon sprinkled on them.
Here’s a recipe for another one of my favorites.
