Hi everyone, Kiki from Kiki and Company and I am back to share a fun craft project to do with your kiddos this Halloween season. My kids LOVE Halloween. They love to WEAR Halloween on their shirts, their socks, and anything else they can get their hands on! So today, I thought it would be fun to do just that. Today we are going to make rings for Halloween and they couldn’t be easier!

Halloween Rings from kiki and company. Love these!

 

 

To begin you will need the following:

  • Free Halloween Printables
  • Ring bases similar to THESE
  • Hot Glue gun and glue
  • Modge Podge or Diamond Glaze

Halloween Rings from kiki and company. So easy and cute!

 

To make the rings couldn’t be simpler:

  1. Download, print and cut out ring printables
  2. Hot glue onto ring base.
  3. Put a few layers of Modge Podge (the glitter one would be fun!) or use Diamond Glaze to add a nice finish and hardness to the top of the ring.
  4. That’s it! You are done!

Halloween Rings from kiki and company. My kiddos will LOVE making these

 

It is so fun doing simple projects with your kids, and this is definitely one that they will love doing with you and wearing around Halloween time!

Halloween Rings from kiki and company. Cute!

During the summer months, I’m always up for a cold treat. When I’m ready for my mid-day snack I always end up wanting something sweet which doesn’t always equate to being healthy. Its like, I go to the store for some organic vegetables and I always come home with regular ice-cream. Weird. So, when my boys and I went cherry picking in my neighbors orchard, (no, we aren’t creepers…they invited us,) it was the perfect chance to make something healthy AND yummy! Frozen Cherry Yogurt Pops!

cherry yogurt pops 1

 

When I was growing up my mom always made these yogurt pops and I thought I would give them a little twist using the cherries.

INGREDIENTS:

-Fresh cherries, preferably ones from your friendly neighbor

-About 2 cups vanilla yogurt

-1 small tub of Cool Whip

Start by pitting all your cherries and throwing them in your food processor. Get them nice and chopped up.

Next, throw your cherries and all your other ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Stir until mixed.

mix

Then spoon it into your popsicle molds. I like to use those little mini shot-glass sized plastic cups because…they’re cuter. :) Plus these tend to melt faster than regular popsicles so having them in smaller portions helps with mess control.

frozen

Keep them in the freezer for a few hours until completely frozen and serve!

Enjoy! Do you remember the Frozen Pink Lemonade Pie I shared last year? That was one of my very first posts for the chicks. Ah…the good ole days. :)

Come on by Dream Crafter for more summer fun!
