Last year I wanted to do something different for the Trick-or-Treaters who came to my door. Instead of just candy I handed out treat bags with temporary tattoos, halloween-colored bubbles, vampire teeth, and of course candy. It was fun to see the looks on the kids faces when they didn’t know exactly what they were getting. Maybe it’s a trick, maybe a treat?
Depending on how many kiddies come to your door, you might be interested in this Halloween treat craft. They’re also great as party favors or perhaps treats for your child’s classroom peers. And preschoolers will enjoy helping you make them. All you need are a few supplies which you probably already have on hand. The foundation – toilet paper rolls. I love tp roll crafts and I always save our cardboard rolls to repurpose and make something with later.
Construction paper, empty toilet paper rolls, scissors, double-sided tape, a black marker, and fun size candy. If you want to get extra fancy you can add googly eyes, pipe cleaners and feathers. We kept it simple here.
We received a ton of fun candy from Hershey’s and the kit-kats were the perfect size for this project. Just tape the candy into the inside of the roll, and then get crafting.
Emma offered an extra set of hands for me as I measured and cut the construction paper. The easiest way is to mark the end of the roll to get your desired width and then roll the paper around it for your length. Longer is better than shorter, because you can always overlap.
Crafting can be exhausting. In which case, open a yummy kit-kat and enjoy. The kids love them, and they’re orange – so cool!
Next, decorate your character. We used green for our witch with black and yellow paper for her hat, white paper for a ghost, and orange and green for the pumpkin and its stem. Just tape or glue the accessories, and then make your face with the marker. All done! Emma had a blast making these, and I love that it’s a no-fuss craft that we can do together.

these are really cute and something the kids would enjoy making without getting frustrated. sometimes what are supposed to be children’s crafts are not so easy for little hands!
Such a cute craft! And I love that the trick-or-treaters don’t know what they’re getting. It’s like two holidays in one.
These are fabulous…Many thanks, Cindi

Those came out so good! I love all three, but the ghost is my favorite.
And the easiest by far!
