It’s been “Monsterous” around here this week. Sorry. I couldn’t help myself! Ha!
Earlier in the week…or the end of last week…I honestly can’t remember (I have slept since then, as my hubby would say), I tweeted a pic of Halloween paper strips and such (which is seen two pictures below) that I was working on for teacher gifts. Well, these cute little monster cookies are what went inside! Fun, fun, fun. The kids had a blast making them and taking them to their teachers. We gave them out to their Bible class teachers and their teachers at school. They ate a few of them too!
The pic below was on the front of a magazine I saw and I knew I had to make these with the kids. I used the chocolate covered graham crackers you can buy at Walmart and then used cookie icing as the “glue” for the mini M&Ms and the mini Oreo eyes.
The paper closures for the cookie bags.
The end result.
Another project this week was getting cookie snack cups done for my son’s Kindergarten class. His teacher asked if I could bring in some cookies for the Special Halloween Snack…which means (I can only guess) “small party”. See what she did there? Anyway, I was planning on just sending the cookies in cute baggies till I found these adorable cups in the Target dollar section. Who doesn’t like that section? So, I took the cups….
…these cheap little party bags…
…and this Halloween washi tape…
…and voila….the cutest little treat cups for the Halloween “snack” at school.
And lastly, I think, was a friend’s phone call last Friday (from Florida) who says, “What are the odds of you cutting out 200 little orange pumpkins for me and getting them in the mail to me by Tuesday?” To make a long story short, someone who had volunteered for this project at her son’s school was not able to do it at the last minute. So, I said, “Sure, why not, right?” I love her, so, it was done and in the mail on the same day. I have to say, they were cute little pumpkins. They were going to make bookmarks with them. I told her I wanted a picture of the end result.
To add to the list, we of course, carved pumpkins, had Trunk or Treat with the church, a costume Birthday party, and we are getting ready for the school Fall Fest and a Fall Fest (the same day) with the church. So, to say the least we have been busy. Not to mention, my hubby is out of town for most of this week.
The kids are hoping to go trick or treating tonight if the weather holds out…I am not so sure it is going to happen. They are going to be broken hearted if we can’t go! I will be a little too, but there is always next year, I guess.
Hope you all have a Happy Halloween and stay safe! Don’t get TRICKED!
Have a great day and remember, it is always homemade!
