Happy Halloween everyone! Since the big candy-filled day is right around the corner we wanted to share some fun Halloween treats! The first treat is easy and cheap! Our fave combo! It is also a tradition for the speech ladies. Cindy has been making these for her kids for several years!
First get a bag of suckers (works best if the shape is round), orange yarn, and a box of tissues.

Next, wrap the tissue around the sucker and tie off with the orange yarn.

Then add a ghost face and you are good to go! It makes a super cute treat! I always make sure to hand these out at the END of speech, that way the kids are good and sugared up for the teacher and not in the middle of your therapy session. (let me tell you how much my teachers love THAT… ;)

The next idea came from Skip to My Lou. This website is full of creative handmade gifts!

BOO you friends and other teachers! Just fill up a pumpkin with goodies like ingredients to make caramel apples, hot chocolate, or yummy candy, drop it off on their door, ring and dash! If you are doing it for teacher friends just put it by their classroom door when they least expect it, then they suddenly have goodies to share with the class! (Again - teachers are SUPER pumped about students having extra sugar!) The idea is not to let anyone know who “BOOed” them. Whoever receives the BOO basket has to pass it on with new goodies the next day. Before you know it everyone has received a special treat from a secret friend! Make sure you print off the BOO poem here. To see the full tutorial click here.

Please share what you do for Halloween! Happy Halloween!
