Crafts for Kids: Halloween Class Treats

Welcome to Mama Meow's very first blog hop! If it's your first time here, let me introduce myself. I'm Danielle (you may know me from EcoScrapbook) and Mama Meow is a blog for kids in the Northwest Ohio area. Since I like to get crafty, you can also find kid-friendly craft projects from time to time. 

Today's blog hop is a Halloween celebration that starts at CardMaker Magazine and hops over to 17 creative blogs before it ends at the Glue Dots Blog with an amazing GIVEAWAY!

For my project, I'm sharing an easy AND fancy way to pass out treats to classmates or trick-or-treaters!

This Halloween Treat Card has four simple steps and takes only two minutes to make. You can have treats for the entire class in about an hour!

You will need these supplies:

Ultra Thin Glue Dots®
Removable Glue Dots®
Blank cards*
Recollections Halloween-themed diecut doilies
8" pieces of Celebrate It Halloween ribbon
Halloween lollipops
Assorted Halloween diecuts

*Purchase pre-made cards or make your own with cardstock. For this project, I used black and white cardstock and made 4 1/4 x 4 1/4" cards.

Step 1:

Attach diecut doily to front of card using Ultra Thin Glue Dots®.

Step 2:

Use Ultra Thin Glue Dots® to adhere Halloween diecut inside card.

Step 3:

Tie ribbon around lollipop stick and make a bow.

Step 4:

Temporarily secure lollipop to front of card using a Removable Glue Dot®.

Repeat for as many cards you would like to make. Easy peasy! 

Hope your Halloween is filled with spooky fun!

Let's see what everyone else is sharing. Here's the list of participating blogs:
