Halloween Glow Stick Gifts

Em's classroom is having a Halloween party next week, and of course we were told to bring a treat or toy to share with the class. I have enough anxiety worrying about whether or not I'm poisoning a typical child with some sort of food allergy or aversion, so a classroom with 9 special needs kids? I wasn't taking any chances. We went the toy route for sure. 


I was at Target today with the kids after school and found these three packs of glow sticks there for $1 and figured I could find a little printable on Pinterest to go with them, and then tie it on with some bakers twine, and call it good. 

When browsing pinterest I found Lady bug Teacher Files blog, and her super cute Halloween printable. It says, "A bit of light, for Halloween night!" Super cute and simple. The hardest part about this craft was waiting for the paper to come out of my deathly slow printer. And it was fun to have my little helper with me to cut out circles, and of course help with photographing the end results!  


What fun gifts are you making for Halloween this year?

  3. What a cute idea! The toy route is always the way to go anyway-- they'll get so much candy on Halloween and then you'll have any potential allergies covered

  5. Such a nice idea, my kids love glow sticks and a little fun glow stick will be well loved too. It is better to have these kind of fun game ideas than cooking something that might have some allergy ingredients.
