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!
