Pinterest Project: Healthy Halloween Snacks For Kids! (And Adults, Too!)

Healthy Halloween Treats For Kids

Halloween was never my favorite holiday, but watching C experience it has been really fun this year.  I’ve tried to make it a month long celebration more focused on autumn than on ghosts and monsters.  So we checked out books from the library, collected leaves, visited the pumpkin patch/farm and more.

Today we had some friends over for a playdate and we decided to make it a mini-Halloween get-together.  I turned to Pinterest to find ideas for some healthy, Halloween-themed foods to share with our friends.  So most of these don’t need instructions, but here they are anyway:

Deviled Eggs w/ Black Olive Spiders

Easy.  Just make your favorite recipe for deviled eggs.  Then slice a black olive in half.  Place one half in the center of the deviled egg and slice the other half into legs.

Yes, I know that spiders have 8 legs, but they were really squished together, so I only put 6 legs on.  I know, I know…

Banana Ghosts

Banana Ghosts

Again, really easy.  Cut a banana in half, then press two mini chocolate chips in, point first, for the eyes, and one regular-sized chocolate chip for the mouth.

Aren’t they cute?!

Pumpkin Oranges

Use a black sharpie and draw on a jack-o-lantern face.  The end.

Mummy Dogs

Take the hot dog of your choice and slice it down the middle.  Place a little cheese down the slit.  Take a package of crescent roll dough and cut the dough into long strips.  Wrap the strips around the hot dog and bake as directed on the dough package.

My friend Jessica made these, so I can’t take credit.  They were a big hit!

So what are your favorite healthy Halloween snacks?  Share them in the comments section below!
