My kids are so excited that the Halloween bug has bitten me HARD. I’m all about the holiday and have been coming up with fun little weekend projects for us to do as a family on a regular basis. And I’m not the only one who has already started to celebrate. The Hub Network has a snazzy little contest online right now that I wanted to put on your radar. The Hub Network’s First Annual Halloween Bash Costume Contest has a grand prize of $25,000. Wha-What?! For your chance at all that dough all you have to do is come up with a costume that is completely unique and one of a kind. No store bought our pre-made costumes are allowed. You have until 9/29 to enter.
One winner from each state will be flown to Los Angeles to appear in The Hub’s First Annual Halloween Bash and have the chance to win $25,000! Halloween Expert Martha Stewart will appear as a judge on Hub Network’s Halloween Bash which is like an added bonus if you ask me. Did you see the cover of her Halloween Magazine? I almost DIED with excitement!
Visit hubworld.com/halloween for full contest details.
Now onto my little craft. SO EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did I mention I’m all about the easy. Don’t start off a craft with “get out your hot glue gun” because I am uninterested.
Here’s what you need:
White faced solid cookies — I went with Milanos
Green decorating gel
Chocolate cookies to crumble
Mash up the cookies in a bowl until they are all crumbled. Then allow your hungry helpers to put the dirt on the top of their graveyards… I mean pudding packs. While they are doing this, take your gel and try to write “RIP” as neat as possible on your cookies. Allow the kids to place the cookies in the pudding like tombstones.
YEAH! Told you it was easy.
