Title: Spooktacular Treats

Summary: Getting ready for Halloween. Nancy will demonstrate some fun activities that all members of the family can do.

First, a decoration. Using leftover ducting, we will create a pumpkin. All that is needed is ducting, paint and extra wire. To create an even more realistic pumpkin, you can even add a stick for a stem.

Next, we will make some quick and easy snacks for the family. Using melted chocolate, pretzel rods, and a few other ingredients, we will create mummies, ghosts, and witches fingers to eat and share. They make a spooktacular snack.
