Halloween will most likely look very different than it has in the past and I think it is really important to try and have some kind of normalcy. I wanted to share a fun treat that I used to do with my kids.
This year like so many other things, Halloween will most likely look different than previous years.
It is so important to create a sense of normalcy for our children and that includes having traditional celebrations in new and fun ways.
I wanted to be sure that the kids have something special to do regardless of what our community does.
Even though my kids are older and not really into Halloween anymore I still feel it is important to do things that we have always done.
Doing those things will bring back happy memories and create new ones during a time that has been anything but normal.
Then I remembered a fun food craft that I always did with my classroom.
I thought this year would be perfect to share a fun treat to make with your kids this Halloween.
This is the easiest treat that you and your kids can enjoy together and they can make with little to no help.
- white icing, what ever flavor you and your kids like
- pretzel sticks
These few supplies create the cutest little treat for your kids to enjoy making and eating.
They were always a hit in my classroom.
Now lets get these fun treats made.
How to assemble:
- carefully take the Oreo apart, twisting just a bit
- take three pretzel sticks and break in half
- take three pretzel sticks and place on each side of the Oreo, down into the cream
- add a little bit of white frosting on top of other side of Oreo and press back together gently
- put two little dollops of white frosting on top of the Oreo
- stick two Skittles on top of the icing, creating eyes
This little Halloween spider cookie is a fun treat for your kids to make and snack on.
You can use these to have a Halloween celebration special and fun by doing something completely different.
Dress up and make your kids favorite meal and eat in your Halloween costumes and make these fun treats to enjoy after.
Play board games or have a Halloween scavenger hunt in your house and outside.
Use your creativity here and let the kids be part of the planning.
If your community ends up having the traditional Halloween festivities you can make these to have as part of your celebration.
