Halloween Happenings…Mummy Candy Jars

Yesterday I ran the roads (always doing things at the last minute)….gathering items…

…..for a project that my granddaughter wanted to do for her class.

Mummy Candy Jars

There were all kinds of tutorials going around Pinterest and Blogland…

…..and I did get some inspiration from here and here

My granddaughter chose this version for her project…to give to her fellow classmates.

She has the kindest of hearts…and always thinking about others…

…..and loves “crafting”.


She could not wait to give these to her classmates this morning.

Personalized labels just had to be placed…she has great “attention to detail”…:)

However, the boys’ labels could not be “flowers” so she made them a decorative square label..

Fast forward to this morning…Where we went to her classroom to see the Halloween Parade!

The children had to dress up in one of their favorite characters in a book….

…..My sweetie chose Mrs. Frisby.


Each student had to speak about their character…


The Parade…


The teachers were also dressed in their favorite characters….


On our way home, I had to take a pic of one of my favorite “Halloween Houses” in my neighborhood….


Tonight…you would see the spider move up and down…and the mummy moving also…



And a creepy scorpion crawling down the side of the house…

My “sweetie” will be Trick or Treating in my neighborhood tonight…

…..as she is “treating” with some of her fellow classmates….

……….and going to some “fun houses” in our neighborhood.

Halloween night in our neighborhood is truly a “Spooktacular Event”

Happy Halloween everyone!….and special birthday wishes to out to my friend Kelly!

  10. Few things are as special as grandkids. If I had known, I would have had them first :).

    I wanted to do this project too, but couldn’t quite get it together. It really is adorable, but not nearly as cute as your granddaughter. How special these times are for you both!

    Did you change the font on your watermark to Emily’s Candy?
