Pumpkin & Butternut Squash Spooky Soup

We love this Halloween set up, and making it really spooky and fun is a great way to get more veggies into your little one. 

These slithering snake breadsticks will be a hit too. A super fun dipper for their soup.

🐍 Snake breadsticks 🐍 

What you need:

1 cup plain flour (Substitute with gluten free flour for GF option)

1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
