After school, I like to have a snack for my daughter ready to go, and most days it is fruit, cheese, veggies etc. There are some days, though, that I think it is fun to have a treat. Having a themed treat is even better. I got to thinking about what I could do that would bring a smile to Lillie’s face, and I knew these easy batty treats would definitely do the job. These would also be perfect if you are in charge of a school class Halloween activity. The kids would love putting them together!
I started by making some printable bat wings (you can find the printable at the end of this post) and printed them on card stock. Then, I cut the wings out and got some candy corn, candy monster eyes, ding dongs, and ho hos. If you can’t find monster eyes, you could always use m&ms with frosting.
Put the bats together by sticking the wings into the sides of the ding dong and then using a small dab of frosting, attach the eyes and teeth to the top. To make the teeth, I gently broke the end off of the candy corn and put them into place.
I thought it would be fun to try it on these hostess ho hos as well. Wouldn’t it be so fun to set a party table and have one of these waiting at each place?! I think it is the perfect little place setting. Just be sure to put it on a smaller plate so that they can put it to the side and use the big plate for the main course so they don’t have to eat the treat first. There are just so many things you can do with these fun crafty treats. If you decide to give them a try, send me a picture! I would love to see your creations!
