I am a room parent at Liam’s school this year and when I found out, I was so excited to start planning his class Halloween party. I started pinning snacks and games like crazy, picking the perfect ones that I could prepare ahead of time. However, I soon discovered that as room parents, we just help prepare the same snacks and activities they do year after year, and we don’t actually get to pick what our child’s class gets. I was bummed, but knew I could share some of the ideas I found with the hive! In order to make my list, the snacks needed to be easy, kid friendly, and mostly healthy. I did include some sweet treats here because they were too yummy-looking to resist!
Marshmallow Ghosts– I made an even easier version of these a few years ago by just drawing on the marshmallows with food safe markers and putting a lollipop stick in them. I love how these use pretzel sticks instead, though!
Sand Witches – This is more of a meal than a snack, but I thought they were too cute and clever to leave out. Turkey and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or egg salad would make these as yummy as they are adorable.
Caramel Apple Bites – This is not only yummy, but interactive, as well. Kids love to dip and would be so excited to dip their apple slices in lots of delectable treats. Plus, they’re so much easier to eat than whole caramel apples!
Peanut Butter Cracker Spiders – This is what I was hoping to make for Liam’s class, but with sunflower butter because his school is nut free. I would use raisins for the eyes because Liam LOVES raisins!
R O W 2 :
String Cheese Ghosts – Draw ghost faces on packages of string cheese for a super easy and cute snack.
Clementine Jack O’Lanterns – Another super easy snack that can be made ahead of time. These are something kids love and parents can have fun making.
Banana Ghosts – What goes better with bananas than chocolate chips? These look as delicious as they are cute.
Spider Deviled Eggs – These might require a bit more work, but they are worth it. Liam loves olives, so I think he would gobble these up!
R O W 3 :
Spiders on a Log – A new twist on an old classic, these can also be made with sunflower butter if your school in nut free.
Jack O’Lantern Veggie Platter – I know it can be a challenge to get kids to eat veggies, but maybe they will be more inclined to if they look as great as this does!
Clementine Pumpkins – Add a teeny piece of celery to the top of a peeled clementine and voila! A sweet little pumpkin any kid would love.
Halloween Cheese Shapes – This is one thing they serve on Halloween at my son’s school and they are super cute and easy to make. You could also cut out shapes in deli meats and bread to make a whole sandwich!
R O W 4 :
Mandarin Orange Cup Jack O’Lanterns – These would be super easy to prepare ahead of time and kids would love them. It’s a good time to get creative with silly faces, too!
Jack O’Lantern Hummus – Liam loves hummus and it’s a healthy alternative to ranch dip for veggies or crackers. Arrange some black beans or olives on top to make a cute pumpkin face for extra flair!
Monster Doughnuts – I might have to put these together for breakfast on Halloween because I think they are hilarious. Plus, the teeth can be used as part of a costume once the doughnut is gone!
Fruit Skewers – I love fresh fruit and so do most kids, so putting some on a skewer and topping it with a little bat ring is a fun twist.
R O W 5 :
Mummy Juice Boxes – I was planning to make these with milk boxes for Liam’s party. They can easily be done ahead of time and I think the kids would love the googly eyes.
Ghost Bags – If I did this one, I’d fill the bags with pirate booty instead of mini marshmallows. It’s an easy way to add some fun to snack time!
Doughnut Spider Eggs – So easy and so clever! Just get some doughnut holes and plastic spiders and you’re done.
Jack O’Lantern Quesadillas – Two tortillas, some shredded cheese, and about 5 minutes is all you need to create these cute yummy snacks. Serve with black beans and avocado for a delicious and healthy lunch!
