Awana October Treats

Pinterest led me to a great blog by Julie called Happyhomefairy where I found this great free printable for fall treats.

I was looking for ideas to make an Awana October treat for the kids.  The Ladies Missionary Fellowship makes something every year.  The last few years we have made a "pumpkin patch" for the kids to pick a treat so I try to find something to use as a pumpkin.  I had found these bright beautiful orange Solo cold cups at Sam's Club.  I knew I didn't want to fill it with candy so more walking around Sam's brought me to a kid's favorite, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish and Gatorade bottles.  Hmmm...what do you do with all that stuff and call it a pumpkin treat?  Well, you use a permanent marker to draw a face.  I will admit I printed a template for the mouth to trace around but the triangle nose and eyes are totally handmade.  LOL!  You print the cute witnessing stickers from the site I mentioned above.  You bring 7 friends who love Christ together to help you and...tada...pumpkin treats are made for 80 kids in less than 2 hours.

My friend, Jane, thought the kids would want some candy in them so we tucked in a couple of Tootsie Pops in each cup.
