Halloween Party Treats: Smarties Bats

Whenever my boys are doing homework I will hear them say,

“Mommy, can I need to get smart can I have some Smarties?”

Ha, ha, ha, these kids are too smart for their own good, trying to find ways for me to give them candy.  The candies are fat-free so I guess that’s a plus and I didn’t realize that they are also gluten-free, vegan, low-calorie, free of top allergens and not to mention inexpensive.

Read the end of the post to see the fun surprise we have for our readers!

We are gearing up for our traditional Halloween Party this weekend and I wanted to try out these party favors: Smarties Bats.

All you need to do is pick up some Smarties, and a few other items and you are set. I have been trying to find an easy and fun Halloween party favor and I think I may just have found it. Aren’t they cute? My son loved playing with his Halloween treat before gobbling it up!

How to make these fun bats:

  • black construction paper
  • googly eyes
  • glue
  • black tissue paper

What you will do:

1. Roll up your Smarties in the black tissue paper, as shown above.

2. Cut out bat wings from construction paper. If you are making a lot of wings double up on your paper so you are cutting quite a few at one time.

3. Fold the ends of the tissue paper over and tape.

4. Attach wings to the back.

5. Glue googly eyes on the front.

Here’s the fun surprise, you can win a Smarties Prize Pack full of Smartie treats! #IAMSMARTIE

    I used to like anything that included teasing my hair into a mess and spraying it with different colored glitter.

    I forgot to put my email with my first comment. I used to like doing anything where I could tease my long hair into a mess and spray it with different colors of glitter!

    The year I was a freshman in high school, my mother ended up in the hospital over Halloween. I took my two little brothers and little sister Trick or Treating. I was a blue kangaroo. It was a full body costume, with a hood, and this huge tail that totally made the outfit. I’ve never had another costume as cool as that one! Cyndi

    My favorite costume was Ragady Ann…homemade costume. My mom used the top of an old mop & dyed it in red food coloring; dress with sweater, and she used rows of masking tape down the length of my red tights. I think I was six or seven years old. My favorite treat was my mom’s homemade popcorn balls. Such fun memories!!!

    Our costumes were always homemade. I think my favorite was the year I was a little Indian girl (before the word “Indian” was politically incorrect; I guess today it would be Native American). Anywho, Mom made me a simple dress of light brown fabric with fringes on the edges. I wore some moccasin-slippers with a leather thong headband and she braided my hair. I even had “Indian paint” on my face, which was my favorite part. I think I was in kindergarten or first grade. This is making me want to dig up the pictures!

    My favorite costume was the year I dressed as Wonder Woman! This year my children are dressing as a cowgirl and a ninja.

    I used to love to be a witch at Halloween. It was easy and we always had all the costume pieces around the house.

    My favorite costume as a kid was a black cat costume my mom handmade for me. It was warm and fuzzy but I think I loved it the most because my mom took the time to make it for me

    My favorite costume was a gypsy because I could make the costume myself using a patchwork long skirt and lots of beads. I never did like dressing up so wearing normal clothes for a costume worked for me.

    Super cute…but I’m a sucker for any craft that lets me use Googly eyes. Not to mention Smarties. Yum!

    This is awesome and perfect for making with the kids!

    We’d love it if you’d share it at our linky party this week: http://www.twokidscooking.com/2012/10/show-and-tell-family-recipes-and-crafts-linky-party/

    Hope you stop by!

    Well when I was younger , we didn’t have too much money to buy our costumes, but those were the best days! We had to be so creative. One year I wore my sisters trousers that were too big for me and got some rope and tied it all around me to keep my pants up and my Dads flannel shirt that we tore up and put charcoal from the fireplace all over my cheeks and hands and clothes. We also went and found a stick that held a red bandanna filled with squished up newspaper. I’m not sure if I was a chimney cleaner or a hobo. It really didn’t matter because I said trick or treat please…and always remembered to thank the neighbors for our treats. We were never allowed to go out of our neighborhoods and now matter how much we loved :) a treat that we were given…we could only visit their house that one and only time! Oh yes….we used our pillow cases for our treat bags ans also used them again to sleep on that spooky evening!!!
