Who does not love cupcakes? Let the kids decorate them by using Wilton’s Autumn & Halloween Foodcrafting supplies at Jo Ann Fabric & Craft Store or these Halloween Bake Foodcrafting supplies. No time to bake, then take advantage of your local grocery or bakery and get pre-made sugar cookies and cupcakes.

Do not forget the snacks for the movie. Try mixing popcorn & candy corn together or serving caramel corn or apples.   For refreshments, serve your favorite punch recipe in a Halloween container like the ones found at Walmart or throw water and juice boxes in this festive beverage tub found at Target.
