We are in full blown Halloween mode around here! Now that the weather is (mostly) feeling like fall, we've busted out all of our Halloween decor and are busily planning for kids' parties and trick or treating! Since we've been Googling the heck out of Halloween, we thought we'd share some of our favorite finds in today's round-up. Enjoy!
How cute are these witches' brooms? Simple, healthy, and fun - a winning combination! The first half of the page is in Spanish, but scroll down for the English version of the recipe. I'm definitely making these for my kids - they're going to love playing with them and eating them!
Fork&Beans shows you how to make fun and creepy apple mouths with sunflower seed teeth and strawberry tongues! The recipe is great as-is (and food allergy-friendly!), but has endless possibilities for tweaking and personalizing. For a slightly more adult version, a hazelnut butter spread with hazelnut teeth and a strawberry tongue would be amazing! For an over-the-top version, you could use caramel for the binder and add some nuts or seeds for the teeth - just make sure you use a caramel recipe that sets up, otherwise it'll ooze out and make a huge (delicious) mess!
Simple, stinkin' cute, and yummy - score! I don't know about your kids, but mine like anything that's in a miniature version - baby carrots, baby corn, mandarin oranges/tangerines, etc. They may or may not eat the "stem", but they'd devour these "pumpkins" in a flash!
Is there anything more fun to play with than slime? I remember my little brother bringing home "gak" from a party when we were little and thinking it was the coolest/weirdest/most fascinating concoction I'd ever seen. I still think it's pretty darn entertaining and my kids could play with it for hours! It's simple to make (you could forego the food coloring and neon paint if you like and it'll still have the same feel, it'll just be white) and inexpensive. Need a non-food favor for a class party or for trick or treaters? This is a winner!
This is a great craft idea to do with kids this Halloween season. Nothing complicated, but they get to paint with a brush and then do handprints and work on their manual dexterity when they make the web! Entertainment + educational = win!
Hope these are helpful as you prepare for Halloween! Let us know in the comments if you make/do any of these! And we'd love to hear from you: what are your favorite Halloween treats and crafts?
Don't forget: we're having a Halloween sale from now through October 31st! Everything is marked down 15% - get it before it's gone!
Have a faboolous and fancy weekend!
