Yes, you read that right. I’m sharing easy DIY Halloween snack cups. The key weird is easy. Let me explain myself. I’ve decided that this upcoming school year I’m going to be more on the ball, but I don’t have a ton of extra time to invest in crafting. But I do want to do some fun things with my kids this season. And I know they would appreciate some somewhat homemade (haha) treats to take into school. That being said, I’m a busy working mom, so I need to make every hour in the day count.
So, I have a plan. I think if I get some some holiday classroom treat ideas together now, I won’t be as harried when I hear, “Mom it’s my turn to bring in treats.” And I thought you all might like to get ahead of the game too, so I’m going to start my “let’s be prepared” share fest with the easy DIY Halloween snack cups I mentioned! Seriously. You can’t get any more simple than this “DIY.”
Now I know not everyone can go the Halloween route at schools. So, if Halloween themed classroom treats are a no no, you could always give them to trick or treaters or throw them in Halloween party goody bags! One of my favorite parties that my mom ever threw for my friends was a Halloween party. I would love to recreate that magic for my own kids this year.
And since I care about their parents too, I’ll try to add some healthy treats in with the candy. Hee hee! Speaking of parties…You just might want to try out this super cute Halloween manicure. You would certainly look like a hostess with the mostess. I’m a big fan of going all in with a party them, including my outfit and makeup, but I digress…
Halloween Snack Cups
12 orange flavored Jello cups (you could use mandarin oranges)
2 piece of black construction paper
hot glue gun
Cut out desired shapes for Jack-O-Lantern faces. You’ll need 2 eyes, a nose and a mouth. I suggest creating a variety of parts so you can combine them to make different faces, but you could make them all the same to make things easier on yourself.
Hot glue the face pieces to the top of the Jello cups.
* Hack alert…You can forgo the glue gun and just draw the Jack-O-Lantern faces on your Halloween Snack cups with a Sharpie if you have a steady hand. I’m not the best at drawing, but I would totally farm this out to my sister who has both prettier penmanship AND drawing skills. Just sayin’. Get ready sis. You may be required to report for classroom snack duty very soon. Bwah!
