Creative Treats to Boost Your Halloween Fun
If you have a Halloween party coming up (or just want some cool ways to celebrate with your kids), special treats and snacks are the way to go.
And the good news is that those yummy goodies can be easy to make!
Over the years, I've loved making and enjoying different types of food with my boys as we celebrate and learn. We've had such a blast with our holiday-themed poetry teatimes, unit studies, and fun days.
I've discovered that it really helps to get my boys involved in planning our homeschool fun activities, especially holiday celebrations.
So, we sat down and chatted about our ideas for Halloween fun for this year. My youngest is dressing up as a gorilla. And my other younger boy's costume is going to be a DIY spider (he loves thinking outside the box!). We decided that some animal themes would be super cool for our homeschool Halloween celebration.
