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.
21. Jack o’ Lantern Orange Packets
If you’re looking for something easy and healthy to take to a school party, this is it! The mandarin oranges are already packaged for easy transport, now all you have to do is draw on jack o’ lantern faces with a Sharpie. You could also draw other Halloween characters (bats, black birds, Frankenstein, etc.), or write the word “Boo!”.
22. Celery Mummies
Garden vegetable cream cheese and deli meat make up these cute celery mummies! It’s easiest to pipe the cream cheese on for a cleaner look, and then cut your deli meat into small strips and place them in a criss-cross pattern. Then, use raisins or dried cranberries for the eyes.
