Re-imagining Halloween With Sun-Maid

This post is sponsored by Sun-Maid, but all opinions are my own.

We are headed into a Halloween season unlike any other, but as a mother I am determined to make the most out of Halloween for my children. We love Halloween, and the entire month of October in our house. We love dressing up in costumes, watching Halloween movies, making fun treats, crafting spooky things, and being together.  As a mom, I am very concerned about the snacks that my children eat. I want my kids to have delicious snacks, but be better for them too. I love that the Sun-Maid Chocolate & Vanilla Covered Raisin Snacks taste good, my kids love them, and they are a better for you snack option.

Chocolate &Vanilla Yogurt Covered Raisin Snacks are dressed up to taste like an indulgent treat yet made with whole fruit so that I can feel more in control during this crazy season marked by sugary candy and now made even crazier because of the pandemic. I want my kids to enjoy Halloween, but I also want them to be safe.  Sun-Maid re-imagined raisins when the iconic brand created better-for-you snacks like yogurt covered raisins. My kids are obsessed with these. It is the original whole fruit raisin, but covered in yogurt to look and taste like an indulgent candy. We had the best time making these spooky apple smiles. They are so easy and my kids love them and can make them on their own.

For a limited time, the Chocolate & Vanilla Yogurt Covered Raisins are available in a special glow-in-the-dark packaging available online only at Walmart and Amazon.  To activate the effect, place the package under a black light for 5-10 seconds or if you plan to use a flashlight or your smartphone light for 15-20 seconds.  

All you need is sliced apples for the mouths, peanut butter for the gums and Chocolate & Vanilla Yogurt Covered Raisins for the teeth. It will be a delicious treat that they will love. 

Halloween is on a Saturday this year, giving you even more reason to celebrate.  There is also a full moon that night!  To make it feel like the kids are trick or treating, we are setting up a Halloween pumpkin-egg hunt. We got some orange plastic eggs, drew jack-o-lantern faces on them and tucked in a few of our favorite Sun Maid Raisins. We will hide the eggs throughout the house or yard and have the kids dress up in Halloween pajamas or a festive costume for a sweet Halloween scavenger hunt! The kids will love it and it can be done from the comfort and safety of your own home.  

It is time to consider new traditions, make your kids feel safe and excited about the Halloween season and make sure they are eating snacks and treats that are better for them.  This year will be different, but different can still be so much fun.
