Teachers deserve Halloween treats too!

I love every holiday for one reason in particular…a great time to show any and everyone you appreciate them! Yes, I even use this excuse for Halloween – anything to get crafty!

I’m so excited that I get to make treats for CJ’s new teachers and school staff this Halloween! Who does not like chocolate, especially at Halloween?

I got CJ involved by getting messy with the treat bags! I used his little handprint and turn it into a ghost – How Cute! I couldn’t really tell if he liked the paint or could not wait to get it off his hands – anyhow it was a great sensory project to include him in!

In each bag we slipped in two Hershey Candy Bars decorated for the season. A Mummy (made from strips of white party streamer) and a Bat (made from black card stock ~ you can find the template here) thanks to Skip to My Lou.

Of course I had to send along a tasty treat for the rest of the staff so I whipped up a batch of brownies. Because I always wait until the last minute (I guess I work better under pressure) I didn’t really plan for the decorating and being crazy like I am I could not walk in with plain brownies…who does that, right? So I searched the pantry and got a little crafty. Tootsie Roll spiders and a Powered Sugar web…

Pretty cute and easy, working with what I had! Enjoy! XOXO



  1. What a fun gift – teachers DO need treats! Welcome to the blogging world.

  2. Hi! If you are interested I would love for you to join us at our Spooktacular Inspiration Link Party

  3. That is fantastic!! I think we may need to copy this idea! I just love Halloween! :)

  4. New reader here – I like the simplicity and thoughtfulness! (Also enjoy reading the early posts of blogs that I happen to find.)

  5. So here I am, 3 years later from this post and two words strike me – CJ and sensory. And so after reading your great little Halloween concept I check your About Me. I have a CJ who was diagnosed on the spectrum as well! I’m just a stepmom, but I love getting him involved in any projects I can – and so even at 9 years old, this will be our project for his teachers and friends :)

    Thank you!
