Getting the creeps about Halloween treats 'n decorations? Try these on for quick 'n easy☺

Looking for last minute goodies that are easy and just right for little hands to make for Halloween? How about taking a little pumpkin, some black pipe cleaners and wriggly eyes to make one of the sweetest spiders you've ever seen? Paint the pumpkins with water based, easy to clean paint and let the kids' creativity go wild! Fun all the way around! If you are worried about making a mess I just bet that the little guys won't care if their spiders aren't black - orange is adorable, too☺

OK, so you don't have any time at all but want to bring a smile to a little face! How about taking your cookie cutter and using it on a slice of cheese to float on a bowl of warm chili? And don't forget you did because this idea is great for Thanksgiving and Christmas and Valentine's Day and Easter. Just change the soup recipe and the cookie cutter and you're off to the races.

Maybe you have a little more time on your hands and would like be be a bit more creative. This afternoon go out and purchase some candy melts in chocolate, vanilla and orange along with some Halloween sprinkles. Dip and decorate and there you go! I like to tie these with holiday curling ribbons for a little extra pizazz.

NOTHING could be easier Chocolate Witch's Hats for Halloween!

Last minute guests arriving? Did your child forget to tell you that he or she is supposed to bring a treat for the Halloween party at church or school? Boy, do I ever have a solution for you!

Purchase packages of Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies and Hershey Chocolate Kisses. Put a drop of orange icing on the bottom of a Hershey Kiss. Stick it to the “chocolate iced” side of the cookie. You're done! What could be easier - and sweeter - and more fun for you and the kids!
