Some Halloween Fun!!

So I jumped in.  I started my Blog.  I’ve been talking about it for a while, and today is the day it all begins…

Here are a few of the Halloween things I have been having fun with:

Blinging Pumpkins!!  Isn’t everything just a little better with a little bling?  I attached a pic of my kids with a pipe cleaner and hot glue. After the kids get done blinging the pumpkins, we pass them out to friends and family.  The rhinestones are glued on with Gem Tac.  Our favorite bling glue!

Here are a few things I have added to my kids lunches this week to give them a little Halloween fun!!

Spider rings in thermos with chicken and rice.  My 9 year-old said she had to show it to all of her friends.  They thought it was awesome!!  They actually looked real and kinda creeped me out.

Ghosts are in the snack bag scaring the bananas!!

I wrote on a banana with a straight pin.  When you first write on the banana it is clear, over a few minutes it starts to darken.  By the time my kids get them at snack time, it will be perfect!!  After school I asked them if any ghosts were in their snack bags.  They were so excited to tell me all about them!  Big HIT!!

Candy Smartie necklace for my little Smarties!!  Going to tie some Halloween ribbons on here before it actually gets in the lunch on Monday.

OK, so there they are, googly eye monsters to eat with.  I couldn’t refuse.

I also made googly eyes out of royal icing, to turn everything into monsters, (see recipe for Royal Icing under recipes), sent in werewolf teeth, and drew on an orange with a sharpie to make it look like a pumpkin.  Everything was super easy and inexpensive, yet priceless memories for my little ones…

Hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween!

    • Thank you. You’ll just have to send them some fun in the mail. I love to send odd shaped things in the mail. (I am sure the postmaster hates me for it.) For Christmas, why not try filling a stocking with goodies, sewing it shut, take it to the post office, and have them mail it just as it is. I am sure the kids will just love it!! You can make a cute label, and stick it right on the back of the stocking. Make sure you ask them to hand cancel. 🙂

  1. Your middle name must be creativity! I love all the great ideas you come up with! I’m glad you started the blog!

    I stitched up your Happy Birthday Banner for my new grand daughter’s birthday party…everyone loved it!

    God Bless You!
