Slime Popcorn:

Let’s slime and dine!

 Halloween is the perfect time to sit back and grind on a horror movie marathon! And let me tell you, there’s no better thing as a good scary movie than huddling under a blanket while munching on some snacks. This sweet and salty popcorn recipe will make you scream with delight!

With these very simple ingredients, you will need:

  • 2 Microwaveable popcorn bags
  • ½ cup of brown sugar

  • 2 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 6 drops of green food dye

Candy Corn Man:

Candy corn is probably the most controversial treat during the Fall season. Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying that it is one of the most iconic treats this time of year. For this craft, we’ll look past the taste and focus on making a sweet new friend!

For supplies you will need:

  • White, yellow, and orange construction paper

    This little guy is sweet like candy!
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Markers

To make your candy corn man, cut the white construction paper in the shape of the triangle kernel. For the yellow and orange paper, cut them so they fill the bottom and middle sections of the kernel and glue them to the white paper.

For the arms and legs, take four strands of paper (two yellow and two orange) and fold them like an accordion. Glue them to the sides of your candy corn man.

Glue the googly eyes and draw a mouth on your candy corn man to make a face, and voilà… you’re all done!
