Are you looking for a quick and healthy-ish treat for your trick-or-treaters? The youngest giggly girl decided this year that she wanted to give away popcorn. Because it is healthier and because everyone gives candy. So why not have something different?
It was fairly inexpensive to purchase. We spent less on it that we would have on purchasing candy for the number of expected trick-or-treaters at our church trunk-or-treat last night. And it was easy to make cute and fun. We had tons of great exclamations and surprise statements. It was wonderful to see the kids get excited about a whole bag of popcorn going into their treat bags.
But, we did choose to do a quick spruce-up and make them cute. I found a jack-o-lantern face on the internet and just copied it. I also found a fun Boo! and copied that. I pasted each of those into a Google Doc. I put the first one about 1/3 down the page and the other on the last 1/3 of the page. I was able to fit two of each, side by side on the page. Print those things and then cut the page in half down the center. Wrap each of the popcorn bags with one of them, tape it down, and voila! You have cute bags of popcorn for the kids!
The most difficult part? The toner for the printer went out after printing just three sheets. So, we made a quick run to the grandparents to get them finished in time for the trunk-or-treat last night!
What are you planning to share with your trick-or-treaters this year? Have you already had your fun? Then save this for next year!
