A Pinterest Halloween

Posted Nov 08 2011 8:02am

 

Bo is sitting next to me as I start this post this morning.  One look at the photos I uploaded into this post and he was very excited, “Hey!  We made those!”  Yes, we did.

If I haven’t managed to convince you yet that Pinterest is amazing, maybe this post will do it for you.  Some people will say that Pinterest is a waste of time, but for me, it really isn’t.  My kids love many of the random creations I find there.  Plus, I use the app on my phone, so I can scroll through the photos while I’m waiting in line to pick Bo up from school, before I go to sleep, or just whenever.  I’ve tried to organize my personal boards a bit and even started a “Pins Completed” board. 

Sure, the projects on Pinterest look more professional.  The photography is definitely better – but our projects were just as enjoyable.

For Bo’s Halloween Party, we made:

Pinterest Candy Corn Fudge

  Pinterest Footprint ghosts

I tested these out on my kiddos with their feet, and then ended up doing hands at the preschool party so the girls wouldn’t have to take off their tights.  How cute are little feet ghosts ?

  Pinterest jack o lantern carrots  

To counter all of the sugar the kids would have that day, I made the carrot/cucumber/broccoli jack-o-lantern with dip  and

Pinterest jack o lantern orange

added Jack-o-Lantern faces to little cuties to take as treats for the party.  All but one of the oranges was consumed and the carrots and dip went over surprisingly well too given the other options were filled with sugar sweet goodness.

  Pinterest pumpkin baked donuts

I also made pumpkin baked donut holes for our Halloween breakfast.

  Pinterest owl cupcakes

And these adorable owl cupcakes when we hosted another family for dinner on Saturday evening.

I also made mummy dogs , cookie dough dip , and started on a special project in the last week.  Pinterest , I <3 you.  Just wait till you see the fun ideas I’ve found for the Christmas season…
