halloween costumes…and favors to match

Our mom {one truly amazing woman} is what we call match-matchy. She likes to match everything, perfectly…all the time. It stresses her beautiful mind when colors or tones are slightly off. Jenna, on the other hand is the total opposite. She prefers for things not to match, and finds a way to make it work. Now can you imagine the scene at our house every morning before school when Jenna walked down the stairs and saw or heard my mother’s reaction to her mis-matched clothes? Oh the memories!

We never really thought about matching our kids costumes to Halloween treats they bring to school…until today.

Our kiddos are going to be Toothless and Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon, and Periwinkle from Secret of the Wings. Here’s what we came up with for matching favors…

Favor | Costume
Favor is made with Astrobrights Papers and a modified free printable found at Confetti Sunshine. We used Microsoft word to modify the size and add Dragon Egg text. Fill easter eggs with skittles, m&m’s or whatever egg-like candy you choose and place in a bag with shreds that resembles a nest.

Create pixie dust with Jelly Beans. Place the jelly beans in a clear cellophane bag, wrap the bag with green tissue paper, tie a bow, then add a cute pixie dust label.
