Transcript:How to Make Halloween Favors for a Kids' Party

Hi I'm Chris Davis for About.com.  If your going to throw a kid's Halloween party, you may want to provide a few party favors for your guests.  Here are a few you can make that are inexpensive and easy to make.

Severed Hand Party Favor

A severed hand is a great place to start.  Take a non-latex glove and place a candy corn in each fingertip. Now fill the remainder of the glove with popcorn.  Tie the open end with a twisty tie or ribbon. You can also add a small gift or some wrapped candy inside the had as well for an added treat.
Ghost buckets are quick to create and look great.  Use small white buckets that you can find at a craft supply store for around .25 to .50 cents.  Now take a permanent black magic and draw the shapes of eyes and a mouth.  You can also cut out the shapes using black electrical tape and sticking them to the buckets as well.  Once the buckets have a face fill with candy, or treats.

Halloween Candy Party Favors

Candy bar mummies are both creepy and delicious.  Wrap a heresy bar with white crepes paper and glue two googly eyes to the wrapper. Add a name tag for each of your guests.

Another quick and easy party treat is a Marshmallow Ghost pop.  Using a regular size marshmallow place it on a Popsicle or lollipop stick.  Place two candy eyes on the marshmallow.  If you can't find candy eyes any small round hard candy will work.  Now wrap with saran wrap and close it with a twisty.  For an added fun twist include a small baggy of mini marshmallows with your Ghost pop.  Include the label Ghost poop.

Halloween Party Favors Bags

Broomstick bags are a great way to hand out gifts to your guests.  Using brown lunch bags place one inside another.  Using a pair of scissors cut from the top down to the base on the outer bag only.  Continue all the way around the bag cutting thin strips.  Fill the inner bag with your treats.  Place a small stick into the bag leaving the end of it exposed.  Now fold back up the cut strips.  Scrunch them down slightly to create a bunched look and wrap a twisty around the top of the bag.

Most of all, be creative and have fun. To learn more check us out on the web at About.com.  Thanks for watching.
