Learn how to make:

  • Mummy Pizzas
  • ‘Bloody’ Lemonade
  • Slime

Mummy Pizza:

  • 1 frozen pepperoni pizza
  • 2 sliced olives for eyes
  • 4 to 5 string cheese sticks

Just lay the strings of string cheese across the pizza and form a mummy body with it. Use 2 slices of pepperoni + 2 slices of olives for eyes. Bake according to the directions of the pizza.

Bloody Cherry Lemonade

  • Lemonade
  • Maraschino cherries
  • Clear cups

Place a few cherries in the bottom of a clear cup and pour your favorite store bought lemonade in. Add a festive straw and boom! Bloody lemonade.

Spider Slime

  • 1/2 cup liquid starch
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup clear glue

Combine the warm water and glue. Mix well with a spoon and then add starch. Mix well. It will become sticky in a few seconds. This feels solid at first, but warms up and gets slimey in your hands. Add festive glitter, spiders, etc.
