Back when I was a kid I always looked forward to holiday parties/celebrations at school. If I remember correctly, back in elementary school we had them for Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day (and maybe one or two more but I’m old so the details are a little hazy). Everyone in the class would bring in a treat and we’d usually spend the last hour or so of the day celebrating. It was always so much fun and I feel a little sad for my kids that they will never experience that joy.
The school system in our town chose to ban all outside food due to food allergies. And I get it, I really do. I have a niece with a peanut allergy, so I am used to making peanut free treats when I go to family parties, but some people just aren’t as good about it – so our schools take the better safe than sorry approach and ban all shared foods from coming in. And because of that, there really aren’t celebrations like I had when I was a kid, but Halloween is coming up and I just CAN NOT resist these Halloween Classroom treats.
But there is a daycare at my work and these Halloween classroom treats are perfect to pass out there. It’s much more fun to pass out a homemade treat than a piece of candy (or whatever) out of a bag. Check it out.
Here’s what you need:
- This free Printable on Cardstock (good quality!)
- Goodie treat bags
- Pumpkin jelly/jujube candy
Here’s what you do:
1. Print out your printable onto good quality cardstock and cut out. Get your printable here.
2. Have your child write their classmates names on the card (if they can), and be sure to fill out who it’s from.
3. Fill your goodie treat bags with a handful of popcorn and drop 4-5 jelly pumpkins in the bag and shake.
4. Fold down the top of the bag (to keep treats fresh) and staple the card onto the front of the bag
5. That’s it. You’re done! They are super easy to make and so cute, too.
If you want to get creative with your kids school Halloween celebration, these Halloween Classroom treats are perfect for you!
