Boo! Back with more Halloween ideas....

At Back-to-School night yesterday, I signed up to help with little kid's Kindergarten Halloween party. There are both peanut and gluten allergies in his class so I've been all over Pinterest looking for inspiration. So far, I've found a few great ideas!

Leave it to Martha to come up with this adorable party favor idea. And my google research says that marshmallows are gluten free. SCORE!

I love this idea but I'm not sure it'll fly in a class of 5- and 6-year-olds. However, it does fit the "gluten free" and "peanut free" bill and it's healthy to boot.

Supplies: fruit (green grapes, strawberries, pineapple, etc.), skewers, plastic bat rings, hot glue gun and scissors.

Simply cut the ring part off of the bat rings. Trim the skewers shorter if needed. Hot glue the bat to the top of the skewer. Slide the fruit onto the skewer. Trim the pointy end off the skewer if desired.
