Halloween Decor: BOO Sign
I love halloween decorating ideas. It is that time of the year to start thinking about how we are going to decorate our house as well as what we are going to wear. Most of the time this means we have a lot of creating to do. Sometimes easy crafts can be easy but time consuming. Today's BOO Sign is an easy craft that can be finished extremely quickly. The hardest part is to cut the wood board to the correct size. I love putting halloween signs on the porch and all around the house. I found ...
Tombstone Halloween Party Favors
Can you believe my kids are already planing their Halloween costumes? It seems early to me, but at the same time I'd rather have more time to figure out how to create their costumes. I have one child with an October birthday. One year she had an amazing costume party with tons of easy crafts, decorations and scary food. The kids loved it! My kids still talk about that fun party. Today, Little Chef D had a fun time helping me create these Tombstone Halloween party favors.
This is an easy ...
When I was young I remember making a bat sucker like this for Halloween. I remember it being an easy craft, quick and fun to make. I thought I could give my Little Chefs a chance to give it a try.

First, use a bowl as a guide for your circle shape. Trace around the bowl, then cut out the circle. Fold the circle in half, then cut along the line to create two ...
Halloween Treat Favor
This school year is the first year in a very long time that I do not have a Preschooler. Each year the preschoolers would have a cute Halloween party and each child brought treats to exchange. My Little Chefs always looked forward to that day! It is ironic that this year when I have no preschooler I create a fun favor.
This Halloween Treat Favor is made from a piece of patterned paper folded into an envelope where you can place a treat. Close the envelope and attach a circle with an embell...
Trick or Treat Bag
Tonight we have a Halloween party and that got us thinking about the actual night of Trick or Treating. Where we live the streets are darker then the streets around our previous home. We found some glow in the dark duct tape and thought that would be a perfect idea for keeping the kids safe as they crisscross the streets. We thought of all the accessories we could make but then remembered everyone would be in their costumes. The one item everyone would have no matter their costume would be ...
A couple years ago we had a Halloween birthday party where we made tombstones for all in attendance. All the kids, not just mine, thought they were so fun! They enjoyed finding the one with their name and reading the rhyme my Little Chefs created for them.
To continue with our tombstone theme this year we created Tombstone Treats. These krispy treats are easy to make with only 3 ingredients. They are also easy to shape.
First, Little Chef D make the krispy treats the traditional way. ...
Glow in the Dark Bats
Do you have a lot of pony beads laying around like we do? It seems to be the first choice for necklace making along with a piece of yarn. For some reason no matter how hard they try to pick all of the beads up there are a few strays. When you step on those little beads they hurt! I discovered online that pony beads can melt. We thought it would be fun to melt them down to make glow in the dark bats!
This project seemed easy enough for even the Little Chefs. We got out our supplies; a ...
One Eyed Mummy Cookies
Every Friday night we have family movie night. The last movie we watched was Monsters Inc. It seemed like a perfect movie to watch in preparation for Halloween! We wanted to make a mummy cookie but after watching the show we decided to make a one eyed mummy. This is one of those easy recipes made from pre-made cookies and a Wilton mummy package perfect for a school or home party. Kids are able to make their own. It takes almost the same amount of time to make it as it does to eat it.
Tombstone Pudding Cups
Do you need a fun, quick party food idea? We have one to share! Tombstone pudding cups takes only minutes to make. It is great for a party at home or even a school party. Your kids or students are able to make their own with only a few steps.
Before the party crush some cream filled cookies in a zip top bag with a rolling pin. We like to hit each cookie to crush them. Then it is easy to use the rolling pin to roll across the bag crushing them into even smaller pieces. You will also need ...
Pumpkin Shaped Cinnamon Rolls
Do you do anything special for breakfast in the fall or for Halloween? We seem to do a lot of fun things for dinner and desserts but often forget about breakfast. We wanted to share a fun pumpkin shaped cinnamon roll that would be perfect for breakfast.
Purchase a refrigerated tube of cinnamon rolls. My tube came with the cinnamon rolls already in circles we just needed to separate them and put them on a cookie sheet. Instead of doing as the directions say, cut the circle in half one ...
Halloween Scavenger Hunt
We love October in our home! The anticipation of celebrating a birthday, deciding which costume to wear and decorating for Halloween makes this month exciting.
Some days are good and some are bad for Haley. We needed a Halloween activity we could do if she was having a day where she didn't want to see anyone new. We needed an activity we could do in the cold with popcorn and hot chocolate. Either one on their own is a party at our house, but both popcorn and hot chocolate is an extra special ...
