13. Mini Spider Sandwiches
School lunch just isn’t complete without these mini spider sandwiches! Surprise the kids on Halloween with a creative and fun version of their favorite sandwich.
14. Cheese Pumpkins
Form soft cheese into balls, and then carve out the pumpkin lines with a toothpick. Now, insert a pretzel as the stem and enjoy with your favorite crackers! You could even do a larger version of this with your favorite soft cheese dip.
15. Octopus Hot Dogs
Our eight-legged friend here is easy to make and the kids really get a kick out of them! Use a bit of ketchup or mustard to make eyes.
16. Salty Bones
Easier than it looks! These salty bones can be made with refrigerated bread stick dough. Just slit them a bit on each end, and then fold the flaps to look like the end of a bone, bake and serve them with a bowl of warm soup!
17. Popcorn Witch’s Hand
These are perfect little Halloween party favors! Fill a non-latex glove with popcorn and something in each finger to resemble the nails (raisins, candy corn, almonds), tie off the end, and maybe even accessorize with a plastic spider ring. Easy and fun!
18. Apple Monster
This apple monster is just begging to be eaten! I love how the almond slivers make for such gnarly teeth. You could even place a bit of peanut butter in the mouth or use another piece of apple to make a tongue.
19. Olive Snake
This slithering olive snake is the perfect addition to your favorite cheese or hummus dip. Add little cheese eyes and a carrot tongue to really get the full effect. You could also serve this alongside a salad or on a snack plate for the kids. Here’s a link to candy eyes to make your snake life-like.
20. Hot Dog Mummies
Pigs in a blanket, Halloween style! What a fun party idea or after school snack for the kids. Bonus: these hot dog mummies are so easy to make and take very little time.
