Halloween Snacks for Party
I’ve helped with my fair share of Halloween class parties, and I usually have a good idea of what is expected. Usually there are some yummy treats, costume contests and fun games in the itinerary, but last year I was asked to do only healthy Halloween Snacks.
I thought it was going to be tough finding some cute but healthy ideas, but alas, it wasn’t too hard at all. The teacher wanted 3 snacks for each of the kids so I decided to make some Ghost String Cheese, Pumpkin Clementines and Pumpkin Peach Cups.
It took a little time drawing all the faces on, but it was very simple and was perfect for the party. I thought the kids might be disappointed that they weren’t getting candy, but they loved the pumpkin and ghost faces so much, they didn’t seem to even notice!!
These aren’t only great for classroom parties but for any party. We all know that we get our fair share of treats at these types of events, so it’s nice to have a few healthy treats mixed in there. 😉

More healthy snacks ideas:
- Celery Monsters: Add peanut butter to a piece of celery and then place 3-4 candy eyes on top
- Ghost Fruit Cup: Use pear fruit cups and draw a ghost face.
- Spider Crackers: add peanut butter to a Ritz cracker. Use pretzels for the 8 leaves, Top with a second cracker. Finally, add red hots for eyes.
- Banana Ghosts: Peel and cut a banana in half. Add mini chocolate chips to the tops for eyes.
- Apple Mummy: Use a vegetable peeler to partially peel the skin to look like a mummy. Add mini chocolate chips for eyes or candy eyes.
- Frankenstein Cup: Fill a clear cup with green grapes. Place a plastic lid on top then use the marker to draw a Frankenstein face.
Thank you for this! I was tasked with healthy Halloween snacks last year and I’ll be stashing these ideas for next time! We had our Cub Scouts make ‘boo’nanas–I thought they’d be a little let down since it was just halved bananas on a popsicle stick and mini choco chips to make eyes and an ‘o’ shaped mouth. They loved it! Your ideas would travel home better. 😉
What a cute idea!!! I’m glad you found some ideas! Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me know! 🙂
Great blog!! These are so cute. Any ideas on how to get the sharpie to keep working, especially on the cuties. Someone told me it was the wax they put on them that makes the sharpie not work, but I’m not sure what to do about it.
is the sharpie safe to be on the outside of the cutie for a long time, like an hour or so?
It should be 🙂
Oh I like this ideas! Add some cute arts on every healthy snacks!
Cant get sharpie to show on string CHEESE. Any ideas?
Hmm..it should? I am not sure why it wouldn’t, unless it was dried out.
