Cheesy Puff Pumpkins! Halloween treats for the 1 year old set

Last Halloween we sat at home and oohhhed and ahhed over the cuteness that was our first child on Halloween.

This year we’re going out!  I got L a Tinkerbelle costume (costume parameters: lightweight, breathable, requires no head gear, ultimate cuteness) and we will be trick-or-treating with our nephews (14 month old twins) on Monday night.

I wanted to make something special to give the boys but I certainly didn’t want to give them candy.   And I needed it to be easy.

So I came up with the Cheesy Puff Pumpkins.

They were pretty simple to make.

First measure your container  and grab the height and width.  The Gerber Lil’ Crunchies container was 4 inches tall and 12 inches round.

Cut your paper to cover the container.  My paper was only 11 inches long so I let the nutritional information hang out.  Then you’ll want to draw a jack-o-lantern face on the front of your paper.  I used my Silhouette to cut the faces out of cardstock but this was a bad idea.  The smiles never stayed put due to the roundness of the container.

Then tape your paper with the face facing outwards to the container.

That’s it!   I think they’re pretty cute myself and I’m letting them hang out on my entryway table until tomorrow when I give them away to my favorite boys.
