4. Yogurt Monster Cups

Creative snacks are some of my favorite crafts out there, so we couldn’t resist adding these totally cool monster pudding cups to our list of Halloween crafts. They make the perfect treat to enjoy at home around Halloween time or to bring to school for your child’s Halloween party. Simply add a Halloween cupcake wrapper hat, a googly eye or two, and a little paper mouth.
