A Roundup of the Best Ever Halloween Treats for Kids (Big and Little)
When I was a kid, Halloween was my favorite holiday. I know I’m not alone in this. It’s a holiday pretty much devoted to dressing up in costumes and eating candy until your stomach hurts. What’s not to like? But I also remember how my parents struggled with coming up with fun activities for entertain my friends and me during Halloween parties. We decorated pumpkins, wrapped each other up like mummies with rolls of toilet paper, and went Trick-or-Treating, of course. If you’re looking for a way to get the kids involved this Halloween or for something to keep them busy during their Halloween parties, check out all these cute kid-friendly Halloween desserts!
