Halloween Treat Bags // Take Out Containers

Our preschool Halloween party is at the end of the month and I'm helping some of the other moms with the food, decor, and treats.  We brainstormed a few cute ideas that I thought you might be interested in. Of course, we turned to Pinterest for lots of inspiration.  

The party is short, just after the costume parade, but we still wanted to make it special.  For food, we'll be bringing these adorable Witches Hat Cupcakes.  Looks like a white cupcake with white icing, a brown ice-cream cone hat, licorice hair, candy corn nose and two chocolate dot eyes. 

Popcorn Hands - the spider ring really adds a fun touch. 

Mummy Juice Boxes - just wrapped in white tape with googly eyes.

I'm bringing some party favors in the form of a Halloween Take Out Box.  I found the containers at Michaels and they have lots of varieties. 

To create name tags, I purchased a few mini take-out boxes and cut them into flat pieces. 

Jazzed them up with a "made with love" stamp.

And simply hand wrote each child's name in orange and black and tied it with a ribbon.

Inside the boxes are treat bags personalized with the initial of each kid's name. I got my bags on Amazon (25 for $5.75)- left over from Valentine's Day.

The bags contain a plastic jumpy frog and fangs and sit on top of Halloween colored crinkle paper.

I enlisted my son's help in stuffing the bags. He got about halfway done before he lost interest. But, he made sure to put "a black fang and black frog" in his bag. 

I'm also putting Lollipop Ghosts in the boxes, but haven't gotten to that yet. Shouldn't be too hard, just cup up an old white sheet into squares, tie with ribbon, and dot with marker for the eyes.

The letters were so easy to affix to the bags- just peel and stick, then iron for about 15 seconds. 

Didn't take long at all. 

I hope the kids like them!

  2. Wow! How are you finding the time to do all this? Looks like a lot of fun to prepare. I can't wait to do things like this when my daughter is in school!

  5. These are all so creative. I know my little one would love to do any of these.

  6. Adorable! We're doing a craft party at the twins' school in a couple of weeks and I'll be using some of your great ideas. Thx!! xo

  7. It's been years since I made the popcorn hands. Just a little heads up....use food service gloves not medical gloves that are powder coated. It looks like they have used the powdery gloves in the picture above which would contaminate the popcorn/candy inside!

  8. Looks amazing! I miss having little ones around during the holidays as I loved creating things like this.

  9. So cute! I'm sure lots of preschool mamas are loving this post. My guys are now all in elementary, but I remember those days of searching pinterest for party ideas. I bought those little containers from Michael's for the neighbors, too. I love the tag idea!
