Can you believe it's almost Halloween?  Wow!  This year is sure going by fast.  We're counting down the days 'till Christmas!  Cannot wait! 
Here is a Halloween Trick or Treat craft that is great for a gift!  You can even alternate it and use it for whatever holiday you like!  
 
MATERIALS: 
empty tissue box
 paper (to wrap the outside)
 decorations for the outside
hot glue gun/glue sticks
tissue paper (to line the bottom)
goodies to fill it with   

DIRECTIONS:
1.  Wrap the outside with paper.  (I used orange wrapping paper.)  
2.  Decorate the outside.  (I cut up pieces of foam with crazy scissors.  Then I added orange foam sticker dots.  I glued the jack-o-lantern on the front.)  
3.  Line the bottom with tissue paper then fill with goodies. 
4.   The "hand"  is just a plastic glove filled with popcorn and jellybeans for the fingernails.  You could use candy corns.  
5.  The "mummy"  is a "Mondo" juice bottle wrapped with white streamer, for the eyes I used white construction paper for the outside layer of black, then white paper and for the eyeballs I colored orange dots black.  (the same ones I used on the outside of the box.)   You could use googly eyes.
6.  The "ghost" is just a tootsie roll pop with a tissue over it and a ribbon tied around it.  I used a black marker for the eyes.  
7.  The pumpkin cookies are just homemade sugar cookies; we died the frosting orange.  
8.  The rest is just a bag of candy, coloring books, notepad and pen.
