A Few Halloween Ideas!
(Warning: sprinkles + a two year old= A MESS! :))

1) A Naughty Halloween Mix:
Candy Corn
Chocolate Chips

Mix together and put in cute Halloween bags and pass out to teachers, neighbors, etc.

2) A Science Experiment:
Cut gummy worms with kitchen shears in long thin strips. Soak them in a solution of 2 T. baking soda mixture mixed with 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Take works out of solution and put in a container of vinegar. The chemical reaction will cause the worms to wiggle. Mixing sodium bicarbonate and acetic acid causes carbon dioxide bubbles making the worms float and move.

3) A Halloween Treat:
Another good gift to make for friends and family are Halloween pretzel rods. In a sauce pan, heat chocolate chips and butter. Cook on low heat and stir frequently. Dip the pretzel rods in chocolate and cover half of the rod. Roll dipped rod in different Halloween sprinkles. We found candy eye balls and Michaels which turned out pretty cute. Wrap 4-6 rods in cellophane and tie with a pretty Halloween ribbon.
