15 Kid-Friendly Halloween Treats!


With Halloween just around the corner I’m always stumped at what to make for my kids’ school parties/celebrations.  I also have to admit that I am not a fan of Halloween (yes, I said it!).  Don’t get me wrong, I like all the treats, baking, and candy my kids get trick-or-treating, but I don’t like the decorating or dressing-up part.  If I get invited to a Halloween Party I can quickly come up with a excuse  reason why I can’t attend.  I know it’s fun for the kids and I actually get excited for them, but let’s just leave it to the kids!

Here are some creative, fun ideas to get your Halloween baking off to a good start.  I know this weekend I will be doing some baking and costume planning for my 3 kiddies!  Enjoy :)
