    2. Oreo monsters

    To make these creepy-cute desserts, place a popsicle stick between the two cookies (in the icing), cover with chocolate or even more icing, and dcorate with candy or a cake-decorating kit. Scary delicious!

    3. Tootsie ghosts

    Wrap a Tootsie pop with a tissue, make a Sharpie face and tie an orange yarn bow around the pop for a super cute (and oh so easy) ghost! To keep the munchins busy a little longer, suggest you whip up a batch for the whole class.

    4. Paper pumpkins

    Remember these from Kindergarten? Turn a paper plate upside down and get to decorating—it's way cleaner and safer than real pumpkin carving. The spookiest face gets a prize!

    5. Q-Tip Skeleton

    No bones about it, this craft is beyond adorable. A little white paint, black construction paper and some cotton buds are all you need.
