Mummies in a Blanket Recipe

Prepare a tasty, spooky treat with your kiddo, allowing them to practice fine motor skills!

Mummies in a Blanket: These spooky and delicious treats are simple to make and serve as the perfect opportunity to work on fine motor skills! This recipe works on several fine motor skills: cutting, rolling, brushing, and placement precision. By engaging in these activities, autistic children work towards their larger goals, leading to increased independence. Plus, it's a tasty appetizer for your Halloween party! Ingredients:
-Cocktail sausages (12oz or 24oz)
-Crescent roll dough (8oz or 16oz)
-Candy eyeball sprinkles Instructions:
1. Preheat your oven to 375 and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
2. Roll out your crescent roll dough on a cutting board. If preparing two batches of mummies, keep the second can of dough in the refrigerator until you're ready to use.
3. Assist your kiddo in cutting along the perforated lines on the dough, separating it into four triangles. Repeat for your second sheet of dough until you have eight large triangles. 4. Start with one of your triangles and cut it further into three strips. Tip: Start your strips from the tallest corner of your triangle. Repeat for the remaining seven triangles, resulting in 24 thin strips of dough. If preparing two batches of mummies, repeat the 2nd and 3rd steps with your second can of dough!
5. Lay out a strip of dough and place a cocktail sausage on the thickest end of the dough. Begin to roll the sausage, wrapping it in the dough and being sure to leave a space between the strips for your mummies' eyes. 6. Place your mummies on the baking tray, leaving about 1 inch in between to allow the dough to rise and prevent them from sticking. 7. In a small bowl, whisk one egg and 1 tbsp of water to make an egg wash. Using a brush, brush your mummies with the egg wash before placing the tray in the oven. 8. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the crescents have turned golden brown in color.
9. Once out of the oven, use a toothpick or skewer to put a small amount of ketchup or mustard on the back of your candy eyeball sprinkles. Stick your mummy's eyes in the gaps you left between the dough. Serve warm with your kiddo's favorite condiments!Download Now!
