With grandchildren in grade school, halloween is "the" holiday. Every day they come up with a new idea for a costume.
They love any kind of halloween inspired sweet, whether it's candy, cake or cookies.
And of course all that commercial packaging pulls them right in. The marketers know what they are doing . . .
To keep them engaged and in my zone I look for easy to do crafts and activities. They think I'm cool especially when we make a mess. It's so much more fun when I can entertain them and make them laugh and then I go home when I'm done. (What a way to get out of cleaning up!)
When I saw this I had to make these with the boys. This is so simple to do and with very little mess.
- All you need are marshmallows, chocolate cookies, chocolate kisses (remove from foil), and chocolate chips.
- Make a little royal icing with powdered sugar and water - 1 TBLS sugar and a drop of water is enough to glue the pieces on to the marshmallow.
We had so much fun making these and eating them. We only had a few left after we were finished.
These witch hats will make an adorable display on the table for a party, halloween or birthday, during this season. They are easy to make and the kids can help put them together. You can make dozens in no time at all.
