How to Make Ghost Lollipops For Halloween

Spooky Ghost Lollipops Delight on the Night of Fright

If you're looking for an earth-friendly treat that may cause a bit of fright go with ghost lollipops. Toddlers love projects so enlist your lil ones help in wrapping each individually wrapped organic sucker in a sheet of recyclable tissue. Tie it off just under the candy with a piece of string, ribbon, twine or raffia found around the house. Then have your child use a black pen to decorate the flying friends faces with good or ghastly expressions.

For a clever way to carry the treats to a school party or to line them up for trick-or-treaters, have your youngster paint the upside down empty tissue box with some eco-friendly paint. After drying it overnight, puncture small holes in the top and insert the ghosts.

These are so adorable and make. They are also a perfect option to give away at Halloween to trick-or-treaters. We thought this project was a great alternative to plain Halloween candy. This presentation idea is also very creative. To see all 10 trick-or-treat candy alternatives visit

We've been making these for YEARS, probably since I was three or four! They're adorable, and so fun to do together as a family.

I used to make these with my mom when I was little. It was so much fun and then I handed them out to my classmates. :D
