Countdown to Halloween 2013 - Owl Theme

We are almost done with the Countdown to Halloween. Today's theme is owls. I had a variety of patterns for embroidery and craft ideas. However, the girls wanted to focus on making recipes this year so the one we did today was a simple snack mix.

The Cheerios represent owl eyes.

It included:

- Owl eyes (Cheerios)
- Bat ears (candy corn)
- Spider legs (pretzels)
- Ghost toes (marshmallows)
- Mummy brains (popcorn)
- Zombie skin (gumdrops)
- Witch's warts (chocolate candies)

Cookie Making

The girls also cut out cookies from the dough they made the other day.

We have a set of Halloween cookie cutters that they used.

Now we just need to decorate the cookies...though they are quite good without frosting and sprinkles.
