Witches Brew Puddings

Yesterday I cleaned out a few pantry items--of course I didn't want to waste them, so Witches Brew Puddings were born! I was surprised how excited the kids were about them!!
Click here to get the labels I made and feel free to substitute any ingredients you have on hand--the only two you really need are instant pudding and milk. I made up this little poem and labels and all the kids had a great time mixing their own "pudding brew" for dessert. Here's the poem in case you can't download it: It’s Halloween and time for treats,
But be careful about the things you eat!
If you’re brave here’s what to do,
We’ll mix up a little Witches Brew!
Pick your potion, mix it well,
and we’ll see if you fall under a spell!
If you turn into a frog, don’t have a fright,
You’ll turn back tomorrow night. Boo!!

Let them add various optional ingredients (this is all the junk you cleaned out of your pantry;)) and then let them mix their spooky brew. Eat and enjoy!
