We are getting geared up for Halloween this week. The girls and I worked together to create these Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe treats for their classmates. We added a few pumpkins and candy corns to mini pumpkin buckets (Target Dollar Spot) and attached a Tic-Tac-Toe board. Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe is available here Happy Halloween!
This year the girls picked easy-to-create Halloween costumes (yay!). Taylor was a marathon runner. I created a racing bib to pin to her shirt. She worn a headband and her usual sporty clothes. She also wore an ipod and medal. Payton was an Olympic gymnast. I added a American flag patches to the side of grey pullover and created a gold medal for the Rio

We have had such a fun Halloween week. It started with a couple of class parties. Here are the fun treats I made…… These spider treats were inspired by a childhood favorite… 2 Ritz crackers sandwiched with peanut butter and dipped in chocolate.

The girls love Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins. Taylor decided that she wanted to be the Doc for Halloween.

I had the hardest time finding a purple stripe shirts, so I ended up sewing (yikes!) these together.
