I love any excuse for a food or craft theme, and now that the girls are a little bit older, they really can get into the spirit of things. A ghost sandwich? They love it! So while they’re still little and I haven’t had any sleep since 1972, we’re keeping things simple. Parents in the same boat, here are some simple but cool ideas to get you into the spooky mood!
Black Cat Oreos // Party Pinching
Decorating a cookie that’s already baked – TOO EASY. Plus can be made vegan, as Oreos are vegan.
Witch Paper Halloween Countdown // Babycenter
I love stuff made with paper – we always have it so there’s no scrabbling for a thousand bits and pieces. Simple and fun!
Skeleton Veggie Snacks
I have looked everywhere for the original link to this but I CANNOT find it. For the healthies among you, get a veggie skeleton 🙂
Illuminated Ghost Garland // Design, Dining, and Diapers
I’ve got two sets of string lights that are perfect for this.
Hanging Foam Bats // HGTV
Cutouts and googly eyes – that’s it!
Boo-Nilla Shake // Martha Stewart
Milkshake with a face. Easy as.
Spider Web Scratch Art // Childhood 101
Colour in. Scratch it off. My kids will LOVE this.
Toilet Paper Roll Bats // Pracically Functional
I have plenty of these lying around…
Paper Plate Jack-O-Lantern // No Time for Flashcards
Glow in the Dark Slime // Paging Fun Mums
A couple of things to grab if you don’t already have them (borax and glow-in-the-dark paint, I’m 1/2), but a very wow moment for the kids!
Mummy Jars // Crafts reDesigned
Five items: jars, bandages, glue, googly eyes, and battery candles.
Printable Monster Drawing Prompts // Picklebums
How cute are these? I love a prompt, I’m not very good at coming up with things on my own.
Vampire cupcakes! // Sugadeaux
Halloween Cups // Paging Fun Mums
Easy but effective!
Frankenstein Pudding // Come Together Kids
Vanilla pudding tinted green. Looks like I’ll be stocking up on cups!
What Halloween fun do you like to have at your place?
