Halloween Treat Cups

As a mom, I LOVE making favors for all of the little ones at Day Care, but I always struggle to find fun, sugar-free, peanut-free favors that the kids will actually enjoy.  For recent holidays, we done everything from making home-made play doh, to holiday rubber duckies and heart shaped chalk.  For this Halloween I decided to create more of a fun treat bag.

Challenge:  Pick up everything at Target in the only 30 min I had to spare last week.....oh the life of a busy woman :-)

Luckily I was able to find everything I needed (minus that bags which were in my craft stash) to make these adorable Halloween treats!

Halloween Treat Cups

  • Orange Ice Cream Cup
  • Cello Bag
  • Mini Play doh cup
  • Cookies 'n Scream Zbar
  • Halloween Pretzels
  • Pumpkin Tattoos
  • Halloween Bubbles
  • Pirate Eye Patch
  • Happy Halloween Sticker
The mini Play doh cups made the perfect base for this treat cup, and the sticker was such an easy way to finish off the look!

Tips:  If you can't/don't want to print your own personalized stickers, just pick up some cute pumpkin or ghost stickers.  To save a couple of bucks, skip the ice cream cup and play doh.  If you have more time, decorate the ice cream cups to look like adorable little Jack-o-lanters!

Most importantly, have fun with it and stay within your budget.  I hope the kids at day care will be excited to see these tomorrow!
