Looking for some simple and easy snacks to make with your kiddos this Halloween? These could not be easier or more fun!Spider CookiesIngredients:
- Chocolate sandwich cookies (would be really cool with the Halloween themed Oreos!)
- Red licorice candy (we used peel and pull Twizzlers)
- Candy dots (or some other circle shaped candy, like M&Ms, Skittles, Nerds)
To assemble: Cut your licorice candy into smaller pieces for the "legs." Pull apart the sandwich cookie. Insert 4 "legs" on each side and put the cookie back together. (You can use a dab of frosting to make them stick if needed.) Spread frosting onto the back of the candy dots and stick them on top of the cookie. (My kiddos kind of just smushed the frosting on top of the cookies but if you wanted to make it more neat you could!)
- Mini marshmallows
- Peanut butter (or whatever nut butter you prefer)
- Apples, sliced
To assemble: Slice your apples lengthwise to make long pieces. Apply peanut butter to one slice. Stick approximately 5-6 mini marshmallows in a row on top of the peanut butter for the "teeth." (They can be as straight or as crazy as you'd like!) Then apply peanut butter to another slice of apple and squish it down on top of the marshmallows.
If you are pregnant this Halloween and looking for an easy and cute costume, I've got you covered! I did this a few years ago and it was so simple. (Which was great since I was exhausted!)
First things first: your supplies. You will need:
- an orange t-shirt
- a pencil
- a permanent marker, like a Sharpie
- a large book, piece of cardboard, or something else big & flat
After getting these items, you are simply going to sketch a very basic pumpkin face onto the shirt with your pencil. Since I'm not the world's best artist, I Googled "jack 'o lantern outlines" and found a TON. PumpkinLady.com
has some great ones. I printed one out and used it as a guide. I got a large, flat book and stuck it inside my shirt to keep it nice and smooth while drawing.
After sketching out the outline, I simply filled it in with my black marker. I let it dry for a few hours and then voila! I added a pair of black leggings and flats and voila, my costume was complete. It was quick, easy, and I actually got quite a few compliments on it!
