Boo-ya! I am in the Halloween spirit so I am posting a few Halloween links. Join me as I revert to a kid for a few minutes.
These cute Halloween pops via Skip to My Lou look like something I could actually make.
We’re bringing snacks to Miss C’s soccer game on the 27th, so I am thinking I might bring something befitting the season. Right now it’s a toss up between these Halloween Rice Krispie Treats that look like little pumpkins (they look easy to make) or this fun spooky gloved munch mix. Kraft Foods has a ton of great Halloween recipes on their website.
These shortbread witches fingers’ cookies are really freaky. I guess they can’t be any worse than reaching in a bowl blindfolded and handling eyeballs (grapes) or brains (jello.) Does anyone remember those tricks from childhood?
Here are some fun downloadable pumpkin carving stencils via How About Orange?
Whack a Ghoul anyone?
We’ve been reading Georgie’s Halloween, a wonderful children’s book from the 1950s my mom found a few years ago at a little shop in my hometown, nearly every night and we’ve already watched our Charlie Brown’s The Great Pumpkin DVD. I decorated for Halloween early this week and one of my favorite decorations is a little scarecrow that my mom would get out every fall when I was a child. Miss A will be consuming too much sugar and enjoying painting a pumpkin at the annual fall festival at daycare next week and Miss C’s class is headed to the pumpkin patch on the 30th.
So, what are your family Halloween or fall traditions?
