Wholesome Halloween Snack Idea- Bat Yogurt with Printable

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of General Mills. The opinions and text are all mine.

The first thing that my kids do when they walk in the door after school (besides throw their backpacks onto the ground) is ask for a snack. Most days are hectic for me and I don't have something prepared for them and so they usually just go for the junk food. I am trying hard to not have that happen and have some more wholesome snacks on hand so they will go for those instead of the sugary or salty snacks. One of those things that I love to have on hand is yogurt. It's so easy and convenient, plus my kids love it! They also love to have a themed treat with a fun little message for them (they really do get a kick out of it!) so I decided to turn the yogurts into bats and make some fun printables to go with them. These are going to be perfect for after school snack or for their lunches!

I headed to Walmart to get the seasonal flavors of the Yoplait yogurt. They now have Yoplait light Pumpkin Pie, Yoplait original Apple Crisp, and Yoplait Greek 100 Caramel Apple and Yoplait Greek Whips! 100 Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Now to turn them into bats. For the Greek Yogurt, I made the lid the bat, I just cut out the shape of the bat and the body is a circle. For the original and light yogurts, I cut out a strip of black paper 3" wide and then cut out the ears and wings individually.

I glued the black paper onto the yogurt cups and then glued some eyes onto the them.

Next I drew a mouth and added some fangs. Then I printed out the batty sayings. You can get the printable here.

I just cut out the sayings and then put them with the yogurt. And that's it!! Super easy and super fun!

What's fun is when they eat the yogurt, it's still the shape of a bat :).

They also make a great snack for me too, I paired the Yoplait Original Apple Crisp with a Nature Valley granola bar. I just crumbed some on top and it was delicious!!
