jack-o-lantern snack cups

Need a cup of cute to tuck a sweet snack in your little one’s lunch?  Or an easy party favor for your upcoming Halloween party?  Or a fun way to package dressing, peanut butter, ketchup or caramel dip for on-the-go snacking?

Then you will love these jack-o-lantern snack cups!!  

You can {create this} group of grinning and gruesome jack-o-lanterns with a Sharpie and some orange gelatin shot cups!  I found this pack at Walmart – 25 cups for less than $3!

The very complicated, step-by-step directions follows:  Doodle faces with the sharpie on the cups.  ;)

Then … fill with treats, dips, dressing, caramel … squoosh in homemade pumpkin pie spiced playdough for a classroom party favor … make hand scrub or lip balm with the girls and package it up to take home. 

Need Halloween … and quick?!

Or jack-o-lantern treat cups using letter stickers!
