Let the kids have fun with making their own Halloween treat holders.
Last-minute Halloween warriors – don’t worry – I got ya! Here’s your chance to choose between three easy Halloween treat holders for kids. These holders are super easy, so your young kids can help and have fun alongside you.
So, are you the mom that gives out treats to your kid’s classmates? I did this when my son was in Kindergarten, and I think I’ll do it again this year. He’s now in 3rd grade, and I know this age would love it just as much as the littles.
DIY Easy Halloween Treat Holders for Kids
If you’re a crafter, you may already have these craft supplies on hand. If not, don’t worry, they’ll be easy to spot at either a dollar store, grocery store, craft store, and even Target’s $1 spot (but it’s not called that anymore because nothing there is ever a dollar anymore!).
Decorate Brown Paper Sacks
Gather these items:
- Brown paper sacks – alias, lunch sacks (that’s what I call them). Or, you can upgrade to the brown paper sacks that have handles.
- Halloween stickers or Halloween stamps – buy in different styles, sizes, and colors and then go crazy peeling and sticking all over the bags. Grab a black ink pad and start stamping. Kids love this!
- Yarn or ribbon – glue medium to large pieces of yarn to the bag to create handles. Be sure to use orange, black or dark purple (or whatever color you like).
- Markers – draw Halloween pictures and write little things like “Boo!” or “Trick or Treat” on the bags.
- Cutouts – go through magazines and find Halloween pictures and words, and cut them out. Using cutouts is an excellent way to decorate the bag alone, or with markers and stickers added. Decorating Halloween sacks this way is my favorite because of all the seasoned magazines I have at home that I can repurpose.
Make Halloween Themed Cups To Hold treats
Gather these items:
- Orange cups – find these at most dollar stores or discount stores. If you like this idea, consider hitting the after-Halloween sales and stocking up on these fun plastic cups for next year! Use fun and scary Halloween stickers to decorate the cups.
- Sandwich baggies – put the treats into baggies, tie with orange and black ribbon, then place in the cups.
A great treat for this idea would be popped popcorn, or for that matter – a mini microwave popcorn.
Use Envelopes for Halloween treat holders.
I made these easy Halloween treat bags using legal-size envelopes a few years ago, and they are just darling and were so fun to make. My son was eager to help with the stamping part. Just use the supplies you have on hand, and you’ll be good to go on this one.
Don’t stress about Halloween treat bags.
Gather the kids and the supplies to create these quick & easy homemade Halloween treat holders, and you’ll be done in no time. The great thing about making these Halloween treat holders is that it is fun and does not have to cut into the costume and treat budget! Plus, as you know, kids love to craft and make stuff!
