I made the simplest Halloween treat with my kids yesterday! It was only three ingredients and super simple. Perfect for a last minute Halloween treat. I am by no means a Pinterest mom, so I promise you these are the easiest thing in the world to whip together!
Box of Rice Krispie squares (or you can be more ambitious then me and make your own… LOL!)
Fruit Roll Ups
Edible Candy Eyes
Slice fruit roll ups into 1 cm strips
Wrap fruit roll up slices around Rice Krispie squares like mummy bandages
Stick 2 candy eyes at the top onto your squares
I placed mine into individual bags to give at my kids daycare and schools. Ta da! Super easy and adorable treat for them to give to their friends 🙂
I think they turned out super cute 🙂 I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween!
I absolutely love taking our kids to the Pumpkin Patch! We probably go at least 5 or 6 times every year. Our first trip this year was to the Port Kells Nursery. This is one of my favourite patches to visit, as there is so much for the kids to do there besides just picking out their pumpkins. Another great part is that it is totally free to go to, with the exception of taking a hayride. The charge for this is $5.00 (under 3 years is free) which the nursery will redeem towards the purchase of a pumpkin or plants. We easily spend a couple of hours each time we visit. A bonus feature of this particular nursery is that a few of the attractions are inside, because lets face it, Fall in B.C. usually involves a decent amount of rain… lol! I only discovered this nursery a couple of years ago, so I wanted to share it in case you live in the area and are looking for somewhere new and fun to try 🙂
My sweet boys in the adorable pumpkin toques my talented mom made them 🙂

My eldest son’s favourite part… a bunch of tractors for him to climb on and “drive” 😉
Outfit Details: My marl shawl cardigan is sold out at H&M but I’ve linked a cozy one HERE & HERE & HERE // my striped turtleneck is from last year but I have linked a similar one HERE & HERE // Jeans // Boots
There is also an outdoor corn maze, pig pen, little café inside to grab a snack at and I have seen face painting on the weekends! No shortage of things to keep the kids entertained 🙂 What are your favourite family friendly activities for Fall? I am always welcoming suggestions!
We threw my son’s 1st Birthday party a few weeks before he actually turned one. I promised my husband I would keep it simple this year… (Apparently I have a tendency to go overboard… lol!) Both my boys are summer babies which is fantastic because it makes it easy to have a pool or beach party and keep the chaos outside! This post is for the parents like myself that cannot necessarily afford to purchase lavish cakes, decorations and catering for their parties. Absolutely no offence to anyone who does, it is just not in my budget! Trust me, I love reading about and seeing pictures of the extravagant parties! I just wanted to share some pictures from his birthday to show that you can throw a cute Do It Yourself party without spending a fortune. The kids had a blast which is really the most important part right?!
We call him our little Beast, so I decided to go with a Monster theme this year:
Disclaimer: this wasn’t how I originally planned the cake to look, however icing the cake in 30 degree weather proved a little difficult and it started to melt a bit… lol!
Crafts for the kids… Build a monster! Free printable from somewhat simple.
Photo booth props that I ordered from Etsy (also used these to decorate the monster punch & anything else that needed eyes or a scary mouth!
Mini monster jello. Plastic cups & eye stickers from the Dollar Store
I made this Monster ONE sign with some crafts from the Dollar Store & Michaels
