Black cats, goblins and witches will soon lurk on every corner.

AP9 Galleria USA shares these children’s craft projects and snack recipes that are sure to make this year’s Halloween creative and memorable.
--Gingerbread haunted house. Although they’re usually associated with Christmas, gingerbread houses can be just as fun for Halloween especially with the many candy decorations available. Use a family recipe for the gingerbread and assemble with icing. Food coloring can be used to dye the icing black, purple or orange. Decorate with candy corn, jellybeans and black licorice. Use yellow icing for the windows for a creepy glowing effect. Small plastic cake figurines like pumpkins, ghosts, spiders and bats will add a special Halloween touch.
--Spooky snacks. Halloween snacks are quick and fun to prepare for the upcoming party. Let the kids and their friends eat dirt. Fill 9-ounce plastic cups with softened chocolate ice cream, top with chocolate cookie crumbs and stick gummy worms in the “dirt.” Deviled eggs are easy to prepare – add green olives stuffed with pimiento to make Deviled Eyeballs.
--Gourd art. Elaborate pumpkin carving is easy with kits available at craft and grocery stores. These kits usually include several stencils and special yet safe carving tools to turn that pumpkin into a work of art. Glow sticks are safe alternative to candles. Don’t forget to save the seeds to roast for a tasty snack!
--Haunt the house. The sky is the limit for decorating the home in a spooky or fun Halloween theme. Fake spider webs can be applied inside and outside. Use Styrofoam to make tombstones for the yard. Drape white sheets with eye cutouts over small shrubs to create a flock of ghosts. Kids can make and paint cardboard cutouts of bats to hang from trees. Try using some old clothes to create a stuffed dummy mummy and place it near the front door to scare trick-or-treaters.
By using the program, members don’t have to wait for a full moon to make seasonal and everyday purchases for their families and friends through AP9 Galleria USA.
