Default Halloween survival kits

I am doing a mini paint can at my Halloween camp. I am looking for a cute Halloween survival kit. Any ideas ladies?

TIA!

One thing I can think of to put in it is a Glow Stick.

It's going in a can?? A bag of trailmix (w/ fall m&m's & candycorn too, of course) w/ a fall topper. How about printing a recipe for pumpkin dip (served w/ ginger snaps) onto cardstock on your computer & letting them stamp the recipe card? I don't know how they help you survive? Energy for trick or treating & a ready recipe for entertaining...? Tell us what you end up w/!

How about mini matchbooks with a candy treat inside?

I made some in orange. I crimped a large square of Lovely Lilac. Then I stamped "Best Witches" from Tag Time on a square of white. I colored her in with BB markers and then attached it to the crimped piece, which I mounted to the matchbook front cover. After I tucked the front cover in I used the double hole punch to go through all 3 layers. I then tied it shut with purple hemp twine. Don't forget to glue the candy in befor tying it shut!
You can make them any size you want. Mine were pretty small when closed.

Default halloween

here is what I came up with.

I am using the small paint cans. I will stamp the cat head from Trick or Treat on Lovely Lilac with black. I found a Halloween poem about cats to go on the outside. I went to Nobbies tonight (for those of you not from Omaha ro around here, it is a FAB store, it is owned by the same family who owns Oriental Trading Co., one brother owns OTC and the other owns Nobbies). I got spider rings, plastic fingers, gummy fangs, chocolate eyeballs, etc to put inside! I think they will be cute. I am also going to add a packet of apple cider mix. They will be fun to stamp at the camp!!

Thanks for your help ladies!

I cna't find the website now! It was for teachers! I will post it as soon as I locate it!

It goes like this: (Imagine the tune of 3 Blind Mice)

3 Black cats....3 black cats
In black hats....In black hats
They all jumped into the Halloween brew
They teased the ghosts & the goblins too
Have you ever seen such a Hullabaloo
On Halloween...On Halloween


I thought it was cute!!
