Spider Mini Pizzas

Okay, I think this is our last out-of-season Halloween post!  These little spider pizzas are a bit finicky to make, but lots of fun to eat!  They would be great if you’re doing some kind of fall outreach with families, when you have a little more time for involved activities like this one. Ingredients: English […]

Monster Soda Floats

This post contains an affiliate link. My kids and I had a blast creating the cups for the our Monster Floats on Halloween!  I originally saw the idea on Pinterest.  I suggest figuring out the layout of the face before gluing anything on, as it’s really hard to re-position once the glue is on there.  […]

Zelda or Link Party Food

Well, I’m finally getting around to posting the food we had at my son’s Link birthday party. This party was so poorly planned, you wouldn’t believe it. The day before, we sat down to figure out the food and activities. I’ve been quite busy of late and extras like this have fallen along the wayside. […]

Graveyard Cake

My son requested that we make this totally tubular Graveyard Cake from the Betty Crocker Halloween Cookbook.  It would be excellent for any kind of fall gathering or potluck!  The thing I like best about this type of cake is that it doesn’t depend on stellar frosting skills.  As […]

Candy Flower Cupcakes

I simply made cupcakes with a boxed cake mix and frosted them with store-bought frosting.  I chose to make lemon cake with cream cheese icing, but feel free to […]

Bigger or Better Game

If you’re looking for a fun game to play for a family game night, this is it!  It’s very popular and could work well as a community outreach event, as well. We played Bigger or Better back when we used to a do large group game nights.  It was really fun and amazing to see […]

Christmas Gifts for Jesus

One week last Christmas we had a birthday party for Jesus during Sunday School.  We advertised ahead of time that we were collecting non-perishable goods to give to the local food pantry.  If kids wanted, they could bring in the food and it would be like a gift to give Jesus, but it would benefit […]

Peppermint Popcorn Bark

If you have a Christmas party planned for the kids, or just need a fun snack some Sunday, here’s your ticket.  This stuff is so good you’ll be tempted to make another batch just for yourself.  My one tip is, don’t be a dummy like me.  I didn’t remove the old maids, thinking they’d sink […]
