Make Halloween Candy Houses…just like gingerbread houses for Christmas, only these are for Halloween.
It’s almost the Spooky time of year! I’ve already gone to the creepy Halloween costume store with my son looking for a costume and oh my! Some of those mechanical things are so scary! You know the ones where they pop out at you? Well I’m a big wimp when if comes to all that scary stuff… so I’ll stick with the “spooky” stuff…like these cute candy houses for Halloween.
Kids love to make gingerbread houses for Christmas, mostly for the candy, but hey…it’s still a fun creative activity. How about making some little houses for Halloween! They make cute decorations to keep up all during the month of October leading up to Halloween. You could always put them under a big glass cloche on a cute cake stand.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these little Candy Houses for Halloween:
-low temp hot glue gun
-store bought frosting
-food coloring for the coconut
-assorted candies in Halloween colors: black, white, orange, green, purple +
-alphabet letter soup (dry)
To make the spiderweb on the side of the roof top design, use spread the white frosting on the one side of the roof and while the white is still wet, drizzle the chocolate syrup in a circular spiral motion. Then drag a toothpick through the syrup swirl to make it look like a spiderweb.
Before starting, we like to use the low temp hot glue gun to glue all the sides of the graham cracker houses together. This makes the decorating easy for the kids. No one wants to deal with the roof sliding off of the house mid decorating. You could even hot glue the little house to a piece of cardboard.
This is just a fun activity to do with the kids to get excited for Halloween.
Do you love to craft with your kids? What are some of the fun things that you like to make this time of year?
