Bark with a Bite

This treat comes together fast: Melt a package of candy melts according to package directions, then spread onto parchment paper. Press in various candies; let cool. Break to serve. One package makes about nine servings.

Glow Bugs

1. Before the party: Print a bug template for each child onto cardstock; trim as indicated. Cut 5 x 1¾-inch strips of cardstock in the same colors. Place a bug design, cardstock strip, and a battery-operated tea light into a zip-top bag for each child.

2. At the party: Have the kids decorate their bugs and assemble the lights. Wrap the strip around the light and secure with tape. Then tape on the bug at the seam. 

Cyclops Skewers

Halloween can be healthy too! Thread segments of fruit (we used pineapple, kiwi, watermelon, strawberries, and clementines) onto 4-inch bamboo skewers; push on a melon ball last. Press in mini chocolate chip "pupils" and carrot strip "antennae."

Cereal Balls

Eye-catching treats the whole class will enjoy.

Pet Rocks

Kids will dig giving their spiders real personality!

What To Do 
1. Before the party: Cut a bunch of pipe cleaners in half so that there are four pieces for each student. Bring a rock for each child.
2. At the party: Spread out wax paper and have the children paint the rocks as desired (leave the bottoms unpainted); let dry.
3. While they’re drying, the kids can make the legs: Wrap one pipe cleaner around the middle of the other three, and twist in place. Spread them out, and bend each in the middle to make joints.
4. Glue the legs to the bottom of the rock, then glue on googly eyes. Let dry before taking home.
