MARS Chocolate Halloween Candy at Walmart

Last week at Walmart I spotted a MARS® Halloween ‘Mummy’ Chocolate/Sugar Fun Size Mixed Bag of candy, and you know how much we love SNICKERS®, Starburst®, TWIX® and other MARS® Candies! So naturally we grabbed a bag to fill our BOO Kits.

Don’t forget to print your BOO it Forward card!

BOO It Forward Halloween Card


Paint the outside of the terracotta pots and the BOTTOM of the saucers orange. Apply a few coats of paint, as needed. Allow the paint to dry.

Painting Terracotta Pot Pumpkins

Use a strong all purpose glue to attach the piece of tree branch to the bottom side of the saucer (the side we painted orange). Glue it right in the center!

On the side of the clay pots, use jack o lantern stickers to make funny faces. You can also be more creative and use paints of various colors to create the jack o’ lantern faces!
