Fun and Healthy Halloween Snack Ideas for Kids

Creepy Halloween Wagon
Cut celery into 2-inch pieces. Spread with peanut butter and add some raisings or gummy creatures. For wheels, slice carrots into thin slices and secure with toothpicks.

Orange Jack-o'Lanterns - Icy Treat
Draw jack-o'-lantern faces on oranges with a sharpie. Cut off top part of orange and scoop out pulp. Mix some of the orange pulp with a vanilla yogurt, add some swirls of green Jell-O and some raisins into the mix. Pour into the oranges and place them in a muffin tin and chill in the freezer. (The muffin tin will keep the oranges steady while they chill)
This is a great healthy treat and children love it!

Monster Apples
Make caramel apples from kits. Let kids create their own monsters by adding marshmallow eyes, raisin nose, and a carrot pieces for mouth, nuts slices for hair, etc.

Bloody Bones
Make bones out of breadstick dough and make a knot to the end. Bake and serve with cheese and marinara sauce.

Cheese Broomsticks
Shred pieces of string cheese into long strips and press them around a breadstick or a pretzel stick. Use a string licorice to keep it in place. It looks just like a broom and is a great idea for a healthy Halloween party treat.
