Halloween is almost here! Some of the best things about the holidays are the crafts and fun recipes because it means time spent together. It doesn’t have to be some super crazy project with lots of supplies and steps.. especially when you are working with a budget or with what you already have! Bronxmama Melissa has shared two fun-and super simple snacks that you can do with your little ones.
-Tootsie Roll Pops (or any that are round)
-Small Rubber Bands (or twistie ties)
Take a lollipop and cover it with a tissue. Secure the tissue by wrapping the rubberband (or twistie tie) around the base of the lollipop. Draw a ghost face with the marker. Simple, cheap and creative!
Mini Chocolate Chips
Unpeel a banana and break it in half. It’s best to break it with your hands rather than cut it with a knife. You don’t want a clean cut. Take two mini chocolate chips to make eyes. Put them in the banana pointy side in, flat side out. Take one regular size chocolate chip and put it for the mouth-again pointy side into the banana flat side out. A simple and healthy Halloween treat that even the kids can help to make!
