Apple Themed Back to School Snack Ideas

We love our themed posts, especially for back to school because they’re reminiscent of our younger days (check out our previous post on Pencil Themed Back to School Snack Ideas)! One theme we couldn’t wait to blog about for BTS is apples.  It used to be tradition to bring an apple on the first day of school for the teacher. That soon evolved to other back to school gifts, but apples always made an appearance in the classroom.

In today’s post, we’re going to bring back the BTS apple idea, but with a twist! Instead of real apples, we’re going to share some fun apple themed food ideas for back to school, perfect for students and teachers!

Halloween Goodie Bag Inspirations

A lot of us like to host Halloween parties for our family and friends. All our favorite people gathered in one place, dressed up like super heroes and cartoon characters? Count me in! However, planning and hosting a Halloween party is a tough feat. We have to find our perfect Halloween costume, prepare the snackage, and spook out our home (inside AND outside)! With all these things to do, sometimes we miss an important part of hosting a party: creating the goodie bags.

Giving out goodie bags has become a popular tradition among party hosts. It’s a little way to thank the guests for coming to their party. They are usually filled with candies and little fun knick-knacks for the guest to take home and commemorate the event.

For Halloween, we should mix things up. Goodie bags are no longer just limited to the cellophane baggies we pick up from the market! Here I will show you a few pictures I found from the internet that should inspire us all to DIY our own little goodie bags for Halloween!

Not only do these make great goodie bags for parties at home, they are also great for children to take to school for a Halloween costume party. Instead of candies (as if children don’t eat enough already!), we can always fill the goodie bags with school supplies such as Halloween erasers, paperclips,  and stickers instead!

Pumpkin Series: Savory Pumpkin Seeds

For the next few blog posts, this blog will have a pumpkin theme! This series will deal with all things pumpkin! Stay tuned for pumpkin recipes, uses, and other fun ideas you can do with your Halloween pumpkin!

The first post to kick off the pumpkin series will have to do with pumpkin seeds!

Once you carve your pumpkin, don’t throw away the seeds! They are actually tasty little treats! Here we have a recipe from the Allrecipe site to create your very own!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1 pinch of salt

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Clean your pumpkin seeds of any residual pumpkin and then leave them out to dry. In a bowl, mix the pumpkin seeds with the melted butter. Spread the pumpkin seeds flat onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle with a light layer of salt and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Stir occasionally so all the pumpkins are equally heated. Remove from oven, cool, and serve!

This is a great, healthier alternative to chips or cookies. Let your kids mix the ingredients while you tend to the oven.
