Parent to Parent: Halloween
On the Web
Matthew Mead, author
"It's all really easy to make, fun simple things that even the kids can do so what I say is gather the family and get some supplies from your fridge and make some fun Halloween things."
The kids love getting in on the action--
How about these delectable spider treats--
All you need is some pretzel sticks and a ding dong--add the pretzels for legs and use food glue to put on the eyes.
Or this scrumptious and easy to make snack mix using cereal--
To make, mix in M&M's, peanut butter, cereal, waffle pretzels and caramel corn--
And most of the things that can be made can be done using stuff you already have around the house
Like these muffin top ghosts--just attach eyes to a muffin cup or coffee filter and add a string for a spooky decoration.
Even these carrots can be transformed into pumpkin-like candlesticks.
And that's good news for moms like Cathy.

"You don't even have to leave the house, and you don't have to spend any money. A little glue a little chocolate, some vegetables and you're all set."
A sure fire way to ensure a "spooktacular" Halloween this season without having to break the bank.
