// 18 Easy Halloween Snacks For Kids + Parties

Halloween Snack Ideas for Kids and Parties - KaelahBee.com
If you're a parent of a young'n, chances are likely that a Halloween party is in your very near future. I've been brainstorming what I wanted to whip up for Toby's Pre-K party next Thursday, but feeling a little uninspired. What's a mom to do in that situation? Pinterest. Sometimes Pinterest overwhelms me, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it. I spent part of last night scouring the site for some inspiration and I picked 18 of my favorite kid friendly ideas!

I tried keeping it peanut-free since peanut allergies are so common. There are a few dairy-free options, too, as well as ideas that lean a bit healthier than others. I'm still not totally sure what I'll be doing for Toby's party, but I'm hoping it's: quick, simple, can be made the night before, and is easy to distribute. 4 year olds are pretty messy by nature... so those rice krispie snacks are looking good... But boy oh boy they're sticky!

Here are the 18 ideas I liked (clockwise):

Any other fab ideas you want to toss into the ring? This girl is all ears! Happy Tuesday!


  1. don't forget about the old classic of tying a kleenex over a sucker and voila! instant ghost. :)

    1. Yes! High on the list in case I run out of time... but I worry that every other mom might do the same thing! haha

  2. Yeah, anything you can make and fridge overnight is a good plan. The upside to kids,though, is that you could just pour out a bowl of orange and black colored sugar and they'd die of happiness.

    Or possibly from the resulting sugar coma.

  3. Oh my gosh, these are all darling! I vote for those Frankenstein marshmallow pops! Cute, totally Halloween, and on a stick to make it less sticky!

  5. Great idea keeping peanut free! Just getting an epipen for the first time myself the thought of dealing with that stuff as a kid is terrifying.
