Take vanilla pudding and mix in orange food coloring. Have Teddy Grahams on the side; the children like to dunk the Teddy Grahams.
Fill a rubber glove with orange or green Kool-Aid (orange juice is a healthy alternative). Bend the fingers down and place in freezer. On the day of the Halloween Party, cut off the glove and put the ghoulish hand in the punch bowl. This is a cool idea that the kids freak out over!
Rice Krispie Pumpkins
Make Rice Krispies following the directions on the cereal box, but add orange food coloring to the marshmallows. When cool, roll them into balls and add faces to them. You can use shoelace licorice for a mouth, a green gumdrop for the stem, M&M’s/red hots for the eyes and nose, or whatever you choose to use. The kids love them!
Open a box of Jell-O mix it into a bowl. Make a shallow well in the center of the Jell-O. Add a drop of water into the well. Roll the drop around. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. You have gumdrops!
Take green Jell-O and follow the box’s directions. But before you put it in the fridge, you mix in gummy worms, bugs, and fish to make a swampy treat. Kids love it!
