This is a classic - Halloween parties in many schools are being called "fall parties" and witches and scary things are frowned apon so as not to disturb certain individuals- sooo- when planning a my daughters kindergarten room party- we called these "scare crow hands" and tied them off with straw like raffia!!! Worked great with our fall on the farm theme.

I have been making this Halloween treat for years. We call them "Witch's Hands". I used the plastic gloves (100 for $1) at any local dollar store. In the past I have used candy corns, skittles and M&M's for the finger tips. Last year I mixed up the popcorn, skittles and M&M's and made Goblin Hands! The kids loved them! What a fun and unique halloween treat!
