We shifted into Halloween high gear this weekend with a trip to the home of Washington Irving (author of the quintessential spooky story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow). We enjoyed the music of a hammer dulcimer and haunting tales sung by a masked balladeer. We watched as shadow puppets played out the drama of Irving's much beloved story. We made a scarecrow and played with a hoop and a stick. All of this under an azure autumn sky along the banks of the Hudson River.

After coming home and carving our own pumpkins (our roasted seeds turned out perfectly!) I was looking for some last minute fun treats to make this week with my little one.

How cute are these?

The "Witch on a Stick" looks particularly easy to make. Find the recipe here. And the "Frankentreats" are just Rice Krispy treats in costume. You'll find those here.
