And so beware, attack of the mummy fruit! Here’s a great idea for healthy Halloween party treats.

Geez Louise though, if you’re going to dress up the kids’ fruit for the lunch boxes or for a party table, make sure you give these only to older kids who understand that the gauze and eyeballs aren’t edible. Please. I have a toddler. I know what idiots they can be. They’d eat the whole mummy fruit.
To make this mummy fruit, I used apples, oranges and bananas here, but you can use any fruit you like. Pears, peaches… Except grapes would probably be tough to do.
how to make mummy fruit
you will need:
roll of gauze
self-adhesive googly eyes, or googly eyes with non-toxic glue
what to do:
Wrap a piece of gauze around the fruit, securing with a small piece of tape if needed. Adhere eyes to the gauze at the front. And that’s pretty much it.
