Little monsters everywhere will totally dig our DIY Monster Mash Treat Bags and snack mix. Make sure to have plenty of snack mix on hand to avoid a monster riot! You’ve been warned!
Halloween in our neck of the (suburban) woods is a neighborhood affair. The kids hop off the bus, don their costumes and then wait. And wait. And count down the hours until working parents get home, the sun goes down, and porch lights turn on.
All of that waiting can be tough on a gang of youngsters and their moms. So, this year we have a plan: Monster Mash Treat Bags and Snack Mix.

With nearly 15 kids ranging in age from three to thirteen, our decorating station and mix and match popcorn trail mix will entertain everyone, and keep the little monsters at bay… at least until dad gets home! 😉
Monster Mash Treat Bags & Snack Mix
Step 1: Collect your snack supplies. I was delighted to find special limited time pricing at Harris Teeter on Pringles® Snack Packs and Keebler® Cookie and Cheez-It® Variety Packs. Grab a few boxes of each, then to round out our snack mix pick out some Kettle corn, peanut-butter filled pretzels, honey roasted nuts, and candy corn. I visited Harris Teeter to pick up my Monster Mash supplies, but you can visit any Kroger or Kroger banner store.
Step 2: Collect the treat bag decorating supplies. I found some halloween-colored treat bags and foam sticker eyes at a local craft store. Then collected some sharpies, construction paper, glue and scissors from around the house. I pre-cut spider legs, Frankenstein hair, and bat wings for the little kids.
Step 3: Set up the crafting station. I created a few examples for the little ones to re-create and figured the older kids would make their own spooky designs.
Step 4: Set up the snacks. Some of our neighborhood kids have allergies, so I kept some of our treats in their original packaging for easy label-reading. Then, I put all of our treats in separate bowls for a DIY Trail Mix Station. Kettle Corn, Keebler Mini Fudge Stripes Cookies, Rice Krispies Treats® dipped in black candy coating, nuts, pretzels, and candy corn were all set out with serving spoons. I also made up a separate bowl for the adults. Momma’s gotta eat too! 😉
