1. Footprint treat bags

 A few years ago, I made these boo-tiful treat bags.  I think they turned out great.  If you don’t want to make a treat bag, it makes a great craft on any colored paper.  Save your little one’s foot print for years to come!

2. Pop up ghost puppet
Aren’t stick puppets the best?..so easy and perfect for little fingers.

Materials
Paper cup
Popsicle stick
White construction paper or white foam board
Black marker
Scissors
Optional: googly eyes and glue

3. Spooky lollipops
These are easy to create… all you need is a tootsie pop, tissue paper, and a black marker for the eyes.  Wrap the lollipop in white tissue paper and tie with ribbon or string.  I think that these would be cute hanging on a tree for a Halloween party. The guests could take one when they leave.

At lmnop, they poked them into apples for a healthier treat!

4. Shaving cream ghosts
LM (34 months) and his little buddy (14 months) loved painting ghosts with shaving cream.  I printed out the cutest ghost I could find, because I’m all about cute!  Next, I put shaving cream on a Styrofoam plate and then showed them how to paint with it.  So surprised that the one year old didn’t try to eat it.

5.  Ghostly Smores
The kids visited their Aunt Patty last week and she pulled this creative treat out of her cupboard!  Her son shared the idea with her after seeing it on television show. Put together your smore and then place it in the microwave.  Start out around 10 seconds.  It is fun to watch the ghost puff up as it heats.
