HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Hope you all have a Spook-a-licious Halloween and if you do Trick-or-Treat you are able to despite Sandy trying to mess things up for the East Coast. I have a few Halloween treats I made for my kids and I wanted to share with you.
I was sick all weekend so all the other fun ideas in my head just didn’t get done. However, I am going to look at the glass half full and recognize the fact that I did get some things done and they were HOMEMADE!!!
My friend posted these awesome Frankenstein Jell-O Pudding Cups on her blog (thanks to Pintrest) and I had to duplicate. These are simply made with 2 small packages of Jell-O Instant Vanilla Pudding made as directed on side of box, food color, and crushed up Oreos on top.
Crazy as it was…I had all the supplies. Clear cups and all. The one thing I didn’t have was Green Food Color. I was going to call my husband (who was conveniently at the store to get Food Coloring) but then I remembered I CAN MAKE GREEN!!!!!
One other important TIP: Most people can get away with using a Permanent Marker. HOWEVER, if you try to paint your face after you pour in cold liquid it condensates and the permanent marker does NOT stay on. I used vinyl cut outs. I am going to add a link here to my drop box account to my vinyl cutouts.
Once you are done….
SPOOKY – DELICIOUS – FRANKENSTEIN TREATS!!!
Next, for my son’s preschool classroom I made him some FUN, SPOOKY box drinks. This was easy enough for the kids to help with.
Supplies needed. Duck Tape (love all their fabulous colors) hole puncher, double sided sticky tape, felt, googly eyes, vinyl cut outs.
1. Remove the straw and save
2. Punch a hole in a strip of duck tape and line it up with the foil straw insert area.
5. With the double sided sticky tape attach back the straw on the back.
Get your little people involved!! They will love to tell their friends what they made!!
The ghost you use the sample instructions but only use vinyl cut outs for the face!!
I hope I have inspired you to to make your Halloween just a little bit more Homemade!! if not this year, then next
