Hey mama’s – anyone completely procrastinating on Halloween classroom goodies?  I have to admit, I did this year.  We went the safe route and copied last year’s classroom treat.

Pumpkin Poo…just for you.

Here’s what you need:

Printable – free printable here from somewhat simple.

(the printable comes in 3 different sizes snack bag, large goody bag and the standard bag, like I used)

Clear cellophane bags – Wilton Clear Bags they come in either packs of 25 or 50 at Target or JoAnn’s

Cheese puffs – Good ol Target has them in the chip aisle here.  They are featured on the cartwheel app too for extra savings.

Paper cutter or scissors.

Fill bags (about 10 poos) fold down top of bag and staple Pumpkin Poo printable to the front.

This cost me about $6 total to make 48….and we have cheese puffs or “pumpkin poo” coming our of our ears still.

For those of you that do not have access to a color printer.  I’m sure you’ve noticed we no longer have an office store in town.  I found that the UPS store does a pretty good job on printables, invites and signs.  Their prices are very reasonable too.  Call the UPS store and get their email address.  You can shoot them the PDF and pick up in minutes.

Being that time is of essence – here are some other easy fun ideas that can all be done in one Target trip.  All for around $10.  Unless you buy half of Target on that said trip:)  Good luck!

How about pumpkin carving patterns?  My family has a pumpkin carving contest at my parents house with the cousins every year.  It’s hard to get a cool design on a pumpkin all on your own.  Check out these easy printable patterns.  Even kids can handle these on their own.  Click here to download a set for your pumpkin carving night.

And the winners are……


It was too close – they are all winners if you ask me 🙂  Love their crazy jack-o-lantern faces.  They seem fitting for each kid…lol.  And Benny Bear, look at that smile.

One more thing before I call it a night –

Sweet Potato Pie, an adorable children’s consignment boutique downtown + Poppies Gallery, hosted their first “Artful Plate” event Tuesday night.  Bailey and my nephew had a great time creating their masterpieces on pottery.  The pottery will be fired then placed on display at the next First Friday Artwalk on Friday, November 6th at Poppies Gallery.  They are offering one more class for the Artful Plate TODAY from 5:00pm – 5:45pm.  Children ages 6-10 years.  $10/each.  Call and reserve your spot.  I got the word that they will be hosting an ornament pottery class for children during Thanksgiving break as well.

All the artists at work.
