“Everyday play is what childhood should be about.” -Allison
As a blogger people usually expect me to make over the top holiday treats, birthday parties , and other celebrations. Nope. I am pretty chill when it comes to holidays like Halloween. I love just being with my kids and seeing the day through their eyes. That doesn’t mean I don’t do anything but like you I am busy and have a million different obligations pulling at me at any given time and need to prioritize. These Halloween snack cup ideas take minutes to make and require almost no planning. These are my kind of treats.
You will need some snack cups like pudding, mandarin oranges, gelatin in orange, white , and green. You may also need some acetone nail polish remover if you want to take the best before date and other printing off the cups. Don’t forget your permanent black marker, it must be permanent or it will rub off and you’ll have a not so spooky mess.
Enjoy an easy but fun Halloween snack!
