Hey Everyone, It's almost Halloween!! What better way to get everyone in the spirit than by crafting "BOO kits" for your neighbors and Haunted Graham Houses decorated in Wrigley Candy. Why not have a yummy float using your favorite Mini Soda after all that crafting. You can even enter to win $1000 Walmart eGift Card!  I'm here to show you how...

I grabbed the family and headed out to Walmart on a weird and rainy day. We set foot inside and it was actually a ghost town (a.k.a. NO LINES!!) I walked my way over the the candy aisle and grabbed a huge 315ct. bag of my favorite Wrigley Halloween candy. It has 2 different flavors of SKITTLES®, two flavors of STARBURST®, and even gummy LIFESAVERS®. Candy Heaven? Yes!

After Grabbing my Candy, I headed to the Beverage section and heard the monsters calling me from within the can. They were screaming "Let Me Outta Here". I grabbed a Mini Halloween 6-pack of Sunkist® and of Canada Dry Ginger ale. Perfect drinks to BOO your friends. Now Let's get Crafting.

BOO Kit:

First we'll need the following:
* Halloween pail or small box
* Bag of MARS or Wrigley Halloween Candy
* Halloween Trinkets or DIY Halloween stuff
* "You've Been BOO'd" card and sign (Available for FREE here)
* 8oz 6pk of any flavored soda in the Halloween Can.
* Black Tissue paper 
**Optional: Cheese cloth

1) Grab your pail or small box, and Insert the Black Tissue Paper. You Don't want to put it completely flat, just a little fluffed up. You can put a Little or a lot depending on how much you want to put in. **Optional:You place a piece of ripped Cheesecloth on the black tissue paper to make it a bit more spooky.

2) Pour some of the Mars or Wrigley Halloween candy on your station and Mix it up with whatever Halloween trinkets you have (If Any), then throw it in the pail or box.

3) Grab 1, 2, or a few of the 8oz Halloween Cans and place then in the pail or box as well.

4) Don't forget to Print your Free "You've Been BOO'd" Cards and signs so that your neighbors, friends, or family know the instructions to #BOOitForward. Place the card and sign in the Pail or box (surround it by more candy If you want)
  1. Cut out this "We've been BOO'd" sign.
  2. Fold the "You've been BOO'd" greeting card (page 2) and tape openings together.
  3. Include the card and sign when gifting BOO bundles.
5) Last, but not least... You Place it in front of someone's door, ring the doorbell and run. (Kind of Like Ding-dong-ditch) It's Fun, Playful, and will show your neighbors that someone cares. Maybe they had a long day and your BOO kit made them feel great. You just never know.

Halloween Graham Crackers and Candy House:

You'll Need:
* Graham Crackers
* MARS and/or Wrigley Candy
* Serrated Knife
**Optional: Sugar and Skillet

1) First you'll need to lay out 4 Graham crackers. Grab your serrated Knife and use a saw-like motion to cut through two of them. Two of your pieces should look like the picture below . (Don't worry about mistakes. It took me 3 tries to finally get it right.) The other 2 pieces should be cut in half to create 2 squares for a total of 4.

2) For this step, you can either melt some MARS chocolate in the microwave to use as "Glue" or place some Sugar on a skillet and let the heat do its job. Either one works perfectly as candy glue.

3) Dip both Sides of piece A in your preferred glue and immediately stick on pieces B and C. Then generously dip both sides of D in your candy glue and stick to the open end of the house. Allow to dry for about 2 Minutes .

4) Once your house is dry, dip The entire top of the house in your chocolate or Sugar Sugar mix and apply the remaining pieces as the roof.

5) Add your candy decor and Voila ! You're all done...

Teenie Tiny Spooky Float

You'll need :
* One 8oz Mini Halloween Can of 7UP® , Sunkist® , Canada Dry, or A&W®
* Vanilla Ice cream

1) Choose your soda and pour it in a small glass .

2) Add a Scoop of Vanilla ice cream, then let it sit for a few Seconds. Add a straw and enjoy!
