Our House Is Haunted

It is Haunted House Week, which means lots of ghost crafts and projects.  I found some videos on Amazon, mostly we watched paranormal specials like America’s Most Haunted and Haunted State.

For our first project we made Hot Chocolate.  Ok so this has nothing to do with ghosts, it was just fun.


For this we used

paper cups (I had some sitting around from a birthday party)

Large Marshmallows (my boys each used four)

Chocolate Melts (we used caramel latte flavor)

Cakepop sticks (or lollipop sticks)

To make simply poke your marshmallows with a stick, make sure they are on well.  Then put your mallows into a paper cup.  Prepare your chocolate melts.  You could probably use chocolate chips or even hershey kisses if you preferred but we had the melts.  I melted them in a measuring cup to make pouring easier.  When the chocolate is melted simply pour onto your marshmallows.  I tried to divide the chocolate up as evenly as possible and I had enough for 8.  I had prepared a candy mold just in case I had extra chocolate but I didn’t need it.  Put your cups in the refrigerator to set.  It only takes an hour or so.

To prepare hot chocolate simply heat milk of choice (cow’s milk, almond milk, soy, whatever you like) in sauce pan until nice and hot.  Separate out into mugs.  The paper cups will peal right off of the chocolate leaving you with a chocolate covered marshmallow on a stick ready to be placed into your mug full of hot milk.  Stir well and enjoy.  You can also heat your milk in the microwave if you prefer, just be careful that the mug will got hot.  Make sure to get an adult to help.



We also made some paper chain ghosts.  Well, we had a little trouble with them but they had fun with it.  The tutorial is here https://www.dltk-holidays.com/halloween/mpaperchain_ghost.htm


Our reading for the week is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  We have read this before but it has been a couple of years.  This year we are doing a Lesson Plan along with it.  https://edsitement.neh.gov/lesson-plan/legend-sleepy-hollow
