I am usually not one that gets into Halloween. Just not a holiday that I like much other than letting the kids dress up and go get all that candy they don’t need! Anyway, a couple months ago I was browsing around on my favorites sites and came across this idea: http://naptimejournal.blogspot.com/2011/10/halloween-survival-kits.html
I found it super cool and thought I needed to make one to take to work. All you need is a bead container, stuff to decorate it, and the goods to go inside it. I had a lot of fun making it and it sure seemed to be enjoyed at work today.
I decorated the outside with scrapbooking paper and curled ribbon. I found these labels that had spiders on them to write what I wanted on.
Some of the items that Nap Time Journal used, I changed to make it my own.
Here is the list of the items to “Eat At Your Own Risk”
Twisted twigs – Twizzlers
Bat Droppings – Tootsie Rolls
Ghost Doughnuts – Lifesaver Mints
Skull Dust – Powdered drink mix
Rat Eyes – Cinnamon Dots
Vampire Teeth – Candy corns
Brain Cells – Nerds
Frog Legs – Mike and Ikes
Fried Skin Flakes – Sno Caps (chocolate with white dots)
Bed Bugs – Sluggles gummies
Ghost Poo – mini marshmallows
Mummy Corpse – Sour Patch Kids
It turned out really cute. Next year I might have to make a couple! I’m kind of brainstorming what I could do for Christmas! Such a fun thing to create!
