I am ready for a movie night with a fall twist. Doesn’t getting all snuggled up in a fleece blanket and watching movie while enjoy fall treats sound the best? I love popcorn in any form including caramel corn and kettle corn. I made my own spin on this treat with caramel apple popcorn. It is so tasty and really perfect for a fall snack to bring with somewhere or to make at home with family. There are a few ways you can make this to put your own spin on it. You can add chocolate to it. I add a little cinnamon sugar to make it a bit more sweet. The caramel and apple tastes compliment each other nicely.
I’m feeling a little witchy with Halloween coming up! Not in an evil witch way. Ok maybe sometimes I wish I could act a little more witchy or sometimes I do act witchy like when I tell my daughter to pick up her toys for the 100th time. Overall I think I’m a good witch and handing out little witch hat treats makes me a really good witch. I always liked the spooky stuff as a child but as a mom I also enjoy the cutesy side of Halloween. These easy diy witch hat party favors are really cute to add candy too or little Halloween gifts, I made them tiny to be able to make enough for a whole group of kids. Plus, if you want to get all of the candy out of the house so you don’t eat it all(or is that just me?) this is a cute way to give it out to friends. Little chocolates or any little and cute candies would be perfect for these witch hat party favors.
All Hollows Eve is almost upon us! Halloween is one of the best holidays for party games. Kids and adults love a good party game and I’ve come up with some easy ideas to entertain a crowd. You can also just play some of these for fun with kids. It’s a spooky good time of year to play games. I’m not going to big Halloween parties at this point in my life but I love getting together with a few friends for a Halloween night. My daughter is also obsessed with Halloween and all things spooky. She helped me come up with some fun and easy Halloween games. Neither one of us have the patience for putting together anything elaborate for games and activities. You can put any of these ideas together in minutes to entertain guests at your Halloween party!

As the weather gets nicer out my fiance and I have been dying to get outdoors to explore. We live not too far from fun places to camp and explore. We decided to plan a trip to go see some caves that are a couple hours away. Getting outdoors and in nature is amazing for a change of scene. I sometimes need to get unplugged and just explore the outdoors. With busy schedules and juggling mom life, I needed a break! Luckily, my fiance loves going on adventures and exploring nature. It was the perfect way to celebrate organic month in September with Honest Tea® and Simple Truth® Beef Jerky to fuel us on our adventure. Honest Tea is authentically a step above, every day. They stand for being authentic and genuine, which you really feel in their tea brewed with fresh ingredients. It is such a refreshing beverage, perfect for on the go and our camping adventures. My fiance loves organic, fair trade products and tea is his favorite. He starts the day with iced tea since he is not a coffee drinker. Having Honest Tea and Simple Truth Beef Jerky for our adventure made him one happy camper, literally!
Halloween is coming up and it is one of my favorite holidays! It is a holiday that every age can enjoy. As a kid it was such a blast to get dressed up and hello, loads of free candy?! What kid wouldn’t love that. Then you get to dress up as anything your heart desires. I personally loved the spooky stuff as a kid. My mom has always been a Halloween and scary movie fanatic! I was a dead cheerleader one year and my sister was beheaded Anne Boleyn. We embraced the bloody side of Halloween. Then in college I got into making my own Halloween costumes. I made a butterfly costume that was sparkly and super pretty. Yes, slightly slutty, but you’re only young once right? Now those wilder college Halloween party days are far far behind me and I have my own daughter. She loves holidays just as much as me. The spooky stuff she mostly finds funny, that’s my girl! She also loves costumes. Last your she was Princess Leia, the year before a ghost, and this year she wants to be an LOL Doll so I have to use my creative magic for that costume. We will do the trick or treat thing but at this age I mostly like to celebrate in pjs and get to bed by 10. That is why I have come up with a bunch of fun and easy ways to celebrate Halloween without leaving the house! Who says you have to get dressed and wear makeup to have fun? Halloween is one of the best holidays to celebrate from home.
Part of the fun of Halloween is who you spend it with. Kids love to get together for trick or treating together. My sisters neighborhood is where we have been trick or treating for the past few years. The cousins and their friends all like to get together for trick or treating. Now we are in a new place but I still want to make trick or treating fun for my daughter. We are going to invite some new friends along to trick or treat. For the occasion I made these fun little “trick or treat bag” and “trick or treat squad’ Halloween bags. They are filled with fun little goodies for kids on Halloween. You could also have these for adults at an adult party for party favors. For the kids I put glow sticks and glow bracelets, rings, stickers, erasers, and candy. There are a ton of creative little goodies you can put in these bags including Halloween socks, headbands, necklaces, temporary tattoos, anything glowing or neon, and candy.
It is the time of year to Boo or be Booed! Boo baskets are a fun gift idea to surprise neighbors and friends around Halloween. They are little Halloween themed gifts to get into the Halloween spirit. My family loves loves Halloween. It is mom’s favorite holiday and it was my grandmothers favorite. We love dressing up, we love decorating, and we love all things spooky. I took the boo basket idea and put my own twist on it. This is an easy boo basket trick or treat invite! Trick or treating is better with friends and this is a fun way to surprise friends telling them you want them to trick or treat with you. It has some Halloween socks, glow sticks, glow bracelet, stickers, and candy inside! Some of the essentials for trick or treat time. everyone can wear matching socks, necklaces, and glow sticks for the occasion. It doesn’t have to be anything over the top just a couple little things to surprise friends. My daughter is so excited for Halloween and I want her to have a fun time trick or treating. You can put anything you want in a little boo basket or get the plastic pumpkins for holding candy.
Halloween is the time of candy. Everyone has a favorite and these is something for everyone. I made some cute and simple Halloween candy wrappers that work for any kind of candy bars big and small. Just adjust the size based on what type of candy you are wrapping. These are cute for kids and to have in the candy bowl to hand out on Halloween. I of course had to add some googley eyes because everything is cuter with google eyes. I had taken a little break from using them but I am back to using them all the time! Seriously, they are the cutest for all kinds of kids crafts and party projects. I think the little frankensteins are of the cutest of these ones but I love them all. I made mummies, frankensteins, and jack o lanterns. Cute, cute, and cute! My daughter absolutely loved them. I use her as a tester of projects to make sure things will be kid approved. They passed her test. Although, anything with candy passes her test.
Continuing with fun and easy Halloween treat bags I have these easy jack o lantern treat bags. These are simple to make and oh so cute! I made them in orange and gold. The black and gold work great for adult gifts and parties. The orange is cute for kids. The gold looked really good in person but didn’t photograph as well. I love simple ideas for holidays because nobody has time for anything too complicated. Plus, anyone and.I mean anyone can make these little jack o lantern treat bags. I must confess that I really do not like making actual jack o lanterns. Carving pumpkins is such a pain in the butt. Maybe I’m just bitter because mine always turn out uneven and just all around horrible. Now they make cute stencils for the pumpkins but even with those carving is just not my jam. However, making treat bags is and that is why I am sticking to what I know on the blog.
I’m ready to get into the Halloween fun! Candy, monsters, and pumpkins oh my. Halloween is such a fun holiday. It’s in my top 2 for sure. This year I have a bunch of fun simple Halloween ideas and I can’t wait to share them with you all! These monster treat bags are such a simple idea for handing out candy, little treats for classes, and kids. Kids can help make them and I whipped them up in minutes. I just love the simple ideas that still turn out oh so cute. I haven’t made any creepy projects for Halloween this year but as my daughter gets older I plan to add in some of the fun and spooky side of Halloween. My mom started us early with the scary movies but I think with my daughter she would never sleep alone again if I showed her one of the scarier Halloween movies. I still can barely watch the Chuckie movies. So for now we will stick to the simple innocent side of Halloween.
