Shrunken Heads

Who doesn't love a shrunken head, really?

It's that time of year. 

This is a pretty simple, fun activity to do with kids (or even grown ups).  We try to do this as close to the beginning of October as possible since it takes a few weeks for the heads to shrink to the desired size. 

Make sure you put the apples on a waterproof plate, somewhere that they won't be disturbed until they shrivel up. 

Here's all you need:

- apples
- salt
- peppercorns

Rather than bore you with descriptions, I figured I'd try out making a photographic guide...let me know what you think!

Have fun shrinking heads!

  1. I hope my husband does catch me trying to salt his head as he sleeps tonight...bawahahaha.

    I am going to try this because like you said before, who doesn't love a shrunken head?
