Tuesday Teacher Tips: Halloween Fun At School

  Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas: Tuesday Teacher Tips: Halloween Fun At School with Bat Cupcake Directions
Tuesday Teacher Tips: A Halloween Party!

If you read my last Teacher Tip {click here to catch up.} you know that I love Halloween! Seriously, it is the one time of year that a little boy REALLY thinks he is a PowerRanger and a little girl REALLY thinks she is Barbie. 

I ♥love♥ Halloween for that reason! 

I have always loved to cook and make things with my students for parties, it keeps them a lot calmer and occupied during the party. That being said, I have never had a party where some poor kid didn't throw up...can't stand blood and guts, thank God for Room Moms!
Depending on your grade level, this is a terrific activity I found it on Pinterest a few years ago and they loved. My 3rd graders made the entire thing, but if you have 1st graders, you could have the Room Mom or Dad, bring in pre-iced chocolate cupcakes and then have the parent volunteer make the red icing eyes.
Here was the original picture I saw....

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas: Tuesday Teacher Tips: Halloween Fun At School with Bat Cupcake Directions
And... my favorite...
Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas: Tuesday Teacher Tips: Halloween Fun At School with Bat Cupcake Directions
Life is not always a Pinterest moment, 
and I'm OK with that! My photography is not always a Pinterest moment, and I'm good with that too :)

Quick and Easy Directions
Ingredients 
  • Step One ~ Get terrific Room Mom to make two dozen chocolate, unfrosted cupcakes. 
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chocolate frosting 
  • 24 fudge-striped Keebler style cookies
  • 24 milk chocolate kisses 
  • Red decorating icing 
  • 24 plastic spoons
Directions
  • Give each child a cupcake
  • Give each child a plastic spoon with a scoop of icing already on the spoon
  • Let the children ice the cupcake and THEN lick the spoon!
  • Give each child a cookie and let THEM break it in half
  • Insert the two cookie halves into the cupcake
  • Next, place the chocolate kiss into the frosting for the head
  • For more added fun, let THEM add two eyes with red decorating icing {what a mess, Oh, no, I mean what joy!}
Seriously, they loved making these :)
Here is another great idea I saw that needs minimum directions.

The center is a marshmallow and the students add candy corn to make it look like corn on the cob, adorable!
