Frankenstein Pudding Cups

Good evening! Wow! Two blog posts in one day. Don't get used to it! Ha. At Darbee's school, each family is responsible for snack once every nine weeks. They have letter of the week and the snacks are supposed to go along with the letter. Now that can get hard! Darbee had snack duty this week. The letter of the week is F. Hmmm....My mind began to ponder what we could do. We thought of Fritos, fruit loops, fruit snacks, fruit by the foot, etc. but I wanted to get creative. I turned to my best friend, Pinterest. Thankfully, it is near Halloween and they are doing Frankenstein on Thursday. I found several neat ideas. Tonight, we made one of them. Frankenstein pudding cups.

We started by crushing Oreos. Darbee had a blast with this. She thought it was so neat to use a hammer to beat the cookies to crumbs.

Then, we used sharpie markers to draw scary faces on small clear plastic cups. She helped with this too.

Are you scared? Ha. Those are some scary looking cups huh?

Next, we mixed up the pudding. We used Jello instant pudding mix, vanilla. I added many drops of green food coloring to get the perfect monster color.

Can you see why I had such a good helper? She was waiting to lick the whisk. Looks like she is enjoying herself huh? (smile)

We filled the cups up and added some "hair" to the top. They turned out precious!

Aren't the cute?
They are all packed up and ready to go to school with her tomorrow! She is very excited.

Thought you might enjoy a fun snack to make with those special kiddos in your lives.

Have a great night!
Until next time.....
