Last week I realized that between Holly’s class and both the kids’ daycare classes, we needed 80+ Halloween treats to hand out. Obviously handing out goodies isn’t mandatory, but we still like to do it, so I went on a mission to find a cute and inexpensive solution.
Here are my Halloween coffee filter lollipop ghosts.
It’s crazy how fast the cost for handing out holiday treats can add up. There’s a constant struggle between wanting to hand out super fun items and staying in budget, especially when you have multiple classrooms to account for.
For 100 lollipop ghosts, the total cost was $18.50 + tax.
I purchased everything at our local dollar store.
- Lollipops ($1 for 7). We used Tootsie Pops, but any round sucker will work!
- Coffee filters ($1.25 for 100)
- Curling ribbon in any colour ($1.25 for 500′)
- Black marker ($1)
Once I had all the materials, the ghosts were super easy to make. I even had the kids help with assembly.
Place a coffee filter on top of a lollipop, shape the filter around to create a skirt, tie a piece of ribbon, and curl it! The final step is to use a black marker to create eyes and a mouth. That’s it!
Not only are these little treats adorable and extremely affordable, it took Holly and Chris (dad of the year!) 30 minutes to bang out 100 of these!
What treats are you handing out this year? I hope you love my coffee filter lollipop ghosts!
