Halloween Sticky Hands Treats

Now to keep in theme of making treats for kids that aren't candy, here is one for the books. 
A big thank you to Erica Cerwin for coming up with this idea. It is beyond perfect. 

This treat is so amazing I know every kid will love it. And it works perfect with the theme of not giving candy to kids at school. Whats also great is you can get this bag of treats at Walmart for around $6. 

I was inspired by Erica's creation that I had to share. I did tweak it a bit from what she came up with but that's the beauty of being creative. You can come up with any design in the front of your treat and it will look awesome.

Halloween Pencil Holder

So even though I came up with a great pencil bag using our Cello bag (141703), I wanted to make a more fancy holder for them. I saw this holder on Pinterest and knew I had to make it match for Halloween. It was too cute to pass up.

This holder holds 4 pencils. It's the perfect treat especially if your child's school doesn't allow candy. 
You just can't go wrong with pencils. 

I used an array of our Halloween Stamps and Paper. I love the colors the best. The Gorgeous Grape and Lemon Lime Twist are my absolute fave. Especially since I am not a purple person at all. But I found myself using a lot of the Grape in all my Halloween treats this year.

Halloween Pencil Bag

Oh how I love Halloween! It is one of my favorite months and I look forward to it every year. I just love the idea of dressing up and eating candy. But over the years I have noticed that schools are cutting back on the candy.

My daughters school won't allow us to hand out any type of candy to the kids. So we came up with some ideas to give out instead. 
I found these pencils at the Dollar Tree and Walmart for super cheap, like 12 for $1. You can't go wrong with that and what kid doesn't need a pencil. 

These pencils are super cute and fun. Nothing scary about them. Our Cello bags (141703) are perfect for holding multiple pencils.
