Gingerbread houses aren’t just for Christmas! If you are having a Halloween kids party, this could be a fun activity to keep them busy. Rather than candy canes, look for candy corn. The kids will have so much fun showing off their creations.
Spooky Peanut Butter Cookies – Food Network
Similar to the classic peanut butter blossom cookies, swap out the chocolate kiss for some malted chocolate balls and a few lines of melted semisweet chocolate, and you have adorable and yummy spider cookies.
How to Make a Rope Pumpkin – HGTV
While there isn’t a ton for the kids to help with, they can assist in gluing and watching this beautiful pumpkin take shape from something as ordinary as rope. Pick out a cute ribbon to go on top and this pumpkin will surely jazz up your front porch or fireplace mantel.
DIY Stick Spider Web – HGTV
Help find the right sized sticks and get them secured with the yarn, then let the kids get creative in creating their unique spider webs.
How to Make Halloween Mason Jar Mummies – DIY Network
