Are you having a Halloween Party this year for kids? Instead of buying a lot of useless decorations and treat holders, why not let your child make them for his friends. Your children can make a few things, before the party and then you can let all the kids make some things during the party. Kids love to make their own take home treats and gifts.
Treat Cups- Mummified
Good For kids of all ages
Eyes, should be wiggle eyes
Black or Orange Felt
Plastic Cups, One for each person plus one
Step #1- Cut your white felt into small strips. If your children are young, parents should complete this step.
Step #2- Mix white glue with a little bit of water. This will make your glue easy to paint on. Perfect for younger children who can not handle a bottle of glue very well.
Step #3- Have your child paint glue onto the bottom sides of the cup. Then place the white felt strips around the cup. Creating a layered effect. Once the bottom end is done, repeat for the top end of the cup. You should have your entire cup covered so that it looks like a mummy.
Step #4- In the middle of the cup, take your eyes and glue them on tight.
Step #5- Using your black or orange felt, cut a bow shape or a tie shape, depending on if you want a boy cup or a girl cup. If you did a girl cup, please the bow on the top of the cup. If you choose a boy cup, place the tie at the lower bottom.
Tips: Fill with candy for a treat cup. Use different color bows and ties, assign children a color and this can be their drinking cup.
A great treat your children can make prior to the party.
Clear Plastic Cups
Orange and Black Gummy Worms
3 boxes of chocolate instant pudding (adjust for amount of children)
Step #1- Prepare instant pudding as directed on package and chill in fridge
Step #2- Once pudding has chilled, divide into clear plastic cups. Make amounts even so there are no arguments.
Step #3- Using a grinder or a food processor; grind your ¾ of your chocolate sprinkles until they resemble a chunky dust type. Sprinkle the remaining sprinkles into the cups evenly. Sprinkle half of your dust into the cups evenly.
Step #4- Gather your worms and start placing these into the cups. You should have 3-4 worms per cup. The worms should have half their body in the pudding and half sticking out of the pudding. Sprinkle remaining dust over worms to create a dirty effect.
A great simple party favor the children can make themselves
