Healthy Halloween Treats: Ghosts, Pumpkins, and Broomsticks!

Pinterest has become one of my best friends this Halloween. It’s given me SO many amazing ideas that I just can’t resist. When I saw this one, I knew the Powell Pack needed to try it out. These healthy foods turned into a little Halloween craft was the perfect after-school activity for Matix and Marley. When we were all done, I asked if they had fun. Matix replied, “That was better than fun!”

Mission accomplished for this mama.

Here’s how to make your own “better than fun” healthy Halloween snacks:
