Nothing says “holiday season” to me, like signing up for a million things to bring to your kids’ classrooms, #amiright?! I actually really love to do this sort of stuff NOW that I don’t own the cakery, and delight in trying to come up with creative ways to use ordinary things. And as usual, budget is of the essence, as is time, and of course when food is involved with a ton of kids, I try to sneak in a healthy item here and there! I mean, they’ll get enough candy Halloween night πŸ˜‰

Enter Babybel mini cheese snacks! Who doesn’t love these cute, little, portable, delicious 100% real cheese snacks?!!! And for the month of October, the original flavor has Halloween packaging on it, which just adds to the fun! And for someone like me (who is eating low carb, I am living for all things cheese, but I digress) πŸ˜‰ Back to the kids! And not only will this work well for a class party/craft, it’s super cute to throw in a lunch box as a surprise for your kiddo!

So in the spirit of coming up with a fun kids’ craft, that would be a hit for 25 or so kids, relatively inexpensive, AND double as a snack, I present to you…

Babybel goes BOO!

Here are three ways to use those cute little cheese wheels, using the same three supplies of a plastic tablecloth, pipe cleaners, and a sharpie (all found at the Dollar Tree for a total of $4):

GHOULISH GHOSTS…


Cut a square of the plastic, white tablecloth, and put your mini Babybel cheese in the center. Fold over, and gather underneath the cheese, and using a silver pipe cleaner, twist until secure, and trim the excess! Draw oval eyes on the front of the ghost’s face, and voila!

CUTE CANDY…

Cut a rectangle out of any fun, printed plastic tablecloth, and put your mini Babybel cheese in the center. Fold the tablecloth together lengthwise and tape the back seam. Then, using two pipe cleaners, one on each side, twist until secure! You now have a fun piece of candy, just like you’d get in your bucket on Halloween night!

PERFECTLY PUMPKIN…

For this one, I made a video to show you the how-to! It’s one minute long, and super easy to do!

That’s it friends! Couldn’t be simpler to make fun, delicious, Halloween-themed treats, for not a lot of money! Speaking of not a lot of money, Target is running deals on Babybel all month long, so grab some from your local store! Let’s not act like you’re not there three times a week anyways (cough, cough)! πŸ˜‰

My little ghoul, I mean, girl πŸ˜‰
