Halloween really is a sugar rush month and last week I shared some healthy Halloween snacks to even out the diet but this week it’s all about the lollipop. A lollipop on its own is delicious and the big flat ones are eye catching and could be used as a decoration as is but with a little creative thinking, glue, paper and sharpies you can take them to the next level. Below are 5 easy options but you’re only limited by your imagination!
With an orange lollipop all you need to transform it into the iconic jack o lantern is a black sharpie. Draw straight on the wrapper a scary face and you’re done.
Use pipe cleaners cut in half or quarters depending on the size of your lollipop and tape them to the back. Add eyes either by using stickers or gluing on some googly eyes and your spider is born. I like the black spider look but any colour would work.
Pick a coloured lollipop for the witch’s face. With pipe cleaner hair, or paper strips, and a witches hat cut from black cars all the witch needs is eyes. Once again stickers or googly eyes glued on work well. You can add other facial features but keeping it simple looks effective.
Using a black lollipop for the body and head add wings by cutting them from black paper or card. Tape them to one side and add sticker or googly eyes to the front.
This is one where any colour lollipop works because you are creating your own monster. Use pom poms, stickers, foam shapes, paper or sharpies and design a monster that’s scary or funny. This one is actually a great Trunk or Treat car boot activity so kids get to make something and take their treat at the same time.
There are endless options for upping your Halloween lollipop game. Simply look at the pops and think what monster goes with the colour – green couple be a zombie or Frankenstein’s Monster, red could be a demon or devil or white can be a vampire or skeleton. So grab a lollipop and start the transformation.
