Ghost Suckers/Lollipops and a Pumpkin Goodie Display

It's been a long-standing family tradition to make ghostie suckers to hand out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Tootsie or Blow Pops, a tissue, some ribbon or twine or string, and a couple dots with a marker for eyes. We love to turn on a family-friendly Halloween movie and spend an evening making up 50 or 100 of these guys.

We usually just arrange them in a bowl, but last year we made them even cuter by drilling holes in a pretty pumpkin and sticking the suckers in. We had to refill frequently through the night, as these little ghosties were popular. I loved hearing the kids' exclamations of how cute and cool the candies looked!

My mom always made these to hand out to our friends when we were little. :)

Mine too! It wouldn't be Halloween around here without them.

Very cute! It is becoming more common to see kids out begging for lollies in Australia these days, so it will be interesting to see if we get any doorknockers. I'll make some of these in case!

I'm sure your kids won't mind helping you dispose of any that aren't claimed.
