Ghost Halloween Party Treats

It’s almost Halloween!!  My son had his Halloween party at preschool today, so I thought I’d share the party treats we made for him to bring to school to share with his classmates.  They were fairly quick and easy to make (and they weren’t too bad on the budget either), which is always a plus around here these days!

What you’ll need:

A bag of Tootsie Pops (or any kind of suckers)
A pack of gift wrap tissue paper
A roll of white ribbon or string
A black permanent marker

One bag of Tootsie Pops said that there were approximately 17 suckers inside (we needed 14), so we only needed one bag.  If your child has a larger class, you’ll need more bags.

Step One: Fold a sheet of tissue paper as shown.

Step Two: Cut in half (I cut along the fold line that was already there from packaging).

Step Three: Place the sucker in the middle of the rectangle of tissue paper.

Step Four: Wrap the tissue paper around the sucker and tie it with a piece of ribbon or string.

Step Five: Draw two eyes and a mouth (my son did this part) for the ghost face.

Step Six: Add a Halloween message with your child’s name on the back of the ghost.

We made 14 in about 20 minutes or so last night for the party this morning. Did your child bring treats for Halloween to school this year? What did you send for them? Share your ideas and pictures in the comments below.
