Halloween snack ideas for kids! If you need last-minute seasonal ideas for school, home, social gatherings, or handing out to kids, here are some creative and healthy Halloween snacks.
Halloween is quickly approaching. If you’re a family who likes to enjoy homemade treats for every season, here are 5 easy Halloween snacks for kids.
1. Clementine Jack-O-Lanterns
Let’s start with the easiest one first. All you need to make these pumpkin cuties are a bag of clementines and a permanent marker.
Take one clementine in your hand and draw a Jack-O-Lantern face on it with your marker.
Make it a family affair by letting everyone decorate a few of their own to enjoy in the week ahead!
2. Cookie Cutter Sammies
If your kiddo is less than impressed with their lunchbox sandwiches these days, Halloween is a great time to try this idea.
All you need is a seasonal cookie cutter for this.
Simply make your child a sandwich for lunch and then use the cookie cutter to make it into a fun, spooky shape. Some of our favorites for this season are big Jack-O-Lanterns, bats, witch hats, or crescent moons.
3. Glazed Vegan Donuts
Who doesn’t love donuts? Plus, these are homemade so you have total control over the ingredients – and the decoration!
Our go-to donut recipe starts with a basic flour dough flavored with cardamom and vanilla. It’s topped with a powdered sugar glaze and whatever toppers your heart desires.
Find the full recipe for glazed vegan donuts here and top them with orange and black sprinkles!
4. Skeleton Veggie Spread
For a healthier-themed snack, arrange a variety of fresh veggies (and fruit if you like!) on a tray in the shape of a skeleton. Of course, you can also make other spooky shapes, like a ghost, a witch, or a cat. Serve with dip on the side.
We like this idea especially if you have kids who don’t usually gravitate toward veggies.
This is a form of food play – when serving them in a new, fun way, kids are more likely to show interest in trying things they don’t normally love.
5. Pumpkin Chocolate Dessert Cups
These delicious little cups may be all you need from now until Halloween. While they can be a little messy to make and eat, they’re totally worth it.
Start by making a layer of chocolate, layer with a dollop of pumpkin filling, and then top with more chocolate. Pop them in the freezer either between layers or as sandwiches at the end.
