 Fall Corn Craft~ Easy Thanksgiving Snacks

Here is a fun craft to make for the kids to celebrate Thanksgiving!  Who doesn’t love an excuse to eat Reese’s Pieces?!

You will need

  • Reese’s Pieces candy
  • Snack size Ziploc bags
  • Brown paper lunch bags
  • Twine or ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Begin by filling your snack bags with Reese’s Pieces.  When they are full, tape the “closure down to the bottom of the bag.  For the top of your ear of corn, you will want to tape the closure at an angle to prevent it from showing.  If it isn’t completely smooth underneath, that is okay, it won’t show other then the very top.

Grab one brown paper lunch bag.  Open it up and cut down the side seams to cut in half.  Cut off the bottom.

You should end up with two equal pieces.  At the top of each of these cut 3 lines about 2-3 inches down.  Now you are going to want to take each of those 3 sections and give them a slightly pointy look.  Just trim the sides of them so they resemble a corn husk, not so much a brown paper bag.

Take your baggie of Reese’s pieces and place them in the center.  Make sure your corn husks are a little taller then your baggie, but not a huge difference.  Bunch up the brown paper bag at the base of your snack bag and secure together with a piece of twine or ribbon when you have it positioned the way you want. You should have quite a bit of brown bag hanging over the bottom, that is okay.  We are going to trim it off once your bags are tied together.

Halloween Crafts for Kids, Frankenstine Flower Pot, #Halloween, #DIY, #CraftFrankenstein Flower Pot

If you have an old flower pot, you have the makings of a monster on your hands! Take a look below at how we created a Frankenstein Flower Pot, perfect for the upcoming Halloween season! You too can craft your own Frankenstein, using a flower pot and a few other common crafting supplies. Take a look at how to get started.

Here is what you will need:

All of these items can be found at your local craft shop.

Halloween Crafts for Kids, Frankenstine Flower Pot, #Halloween, #DIY, #CraftDirections:

1. Begin by applying two coats of craft paint to your flower pot. Allow the coats to dry in between for the best coverage. If you need to, you can add additional coats.

2. Once the paint is totally dry (it will take a good hour, as the terra cotta dries slowly) you can attached your eyes. Take a pair of googly eyes and apply a drop of glue to the back of each. Press the eyes to the pot. Hold them in place until they are dry and secure.

3. You can now take the black marker and create the other facial features on your Frankenstein. We made a straight line and added some scores to it to create the mouth. We then made some lines on the top rim of the flower pot to look like hair. You can mimic the details we created, or you can have fun and create your own. There really is no right or wrong way to decorate your monster and make him come to life. Give this easy and inexpensive Frankenstein flower pot a try. It is a great way to get crafty this Halloween season and really have some frugal fun!

Creepy Apple Mouths, Healthy Halloween Snacks

These fun, creepy, apple mouths are the perfect, healthy snack during this sugar filled Halloween season!  The kids will feel like they are a fun snack, and not even pay attention to the fact that they are eating an apple!

You will need:

An apple

Knife

Sliced or slivered almonds

Begin by cutting your apple into quarters and cut out the seeds.

creepy apple mouths, healthy halloween snacks, #Halloween, #mouth, #teeth, #slicedalmonds, #applesnacks, #healthyhalloweensnacks, #healthysnacks, #halloweentreats

Once you have the apple sliced, you will wan tto turn the slices over and cut into the side with the skin on.  You are just going to hollow out a small section, but do not cut all the way through, like so.  You will want to leave some of the skin on, they will be the lips.  Before you do anything else, if these aren’t going to be eaten right away, you may want to dip the slices into lemon juice.

Now you will slide in the almond slices.  Slide them in just behind the apple skin.  Using a mixture of slices and slivers will give it an extra creepy appearance!  These would not only be a great after school snack, but would work great for a school party, or any Halloween party!
