Halloween Recipes for Kid Parties

Kids playing with food have never been so in vogue. Parents are realizing that letting kids interact, create and craft with the foods they eat not only encourages them to form a healthier relationship with food, it also gets them excited to eat it!

Here, we've got a few easy and edible Halloween crafts for kids to enjoy. There's a treat here for every one, so encourage the kids to get crafty and creative with their ingredients!

  • Chocolate covered anything is always a hit at kid parties, but bananas on a stick decorated as ghosts make for a truly impressive Halloween party food.

  • We don't know of any child who will turn down a grilled cheese sandwich. Make some open faced ones and replace the top slice with olive eyes, nose and mouth for a festive treat that's a bit healthier, too! Get the how-to for these edible pumpkin crafts .

  • Marshmallow Halloween foods are fun to craft and yummy to eat. What's great about these simple marshmallow eyeballs is that the kids can help make them.

  • This red Halloween punch for kids gets some ghoul added to it with the addition of "zombie eyeballs". Not to worry! They're just cherries with chocolate chips in their centers!

  • So long as there are no kids with a nut allergy at your Halloween party, consider serving these disgusting looking mummy mouths . Though they're not very eye-appealing, they're super yummy and a healthier alternative to the usual sugar-filled treats that kids enjoy.

  • Orange bell peppers look an awful lot like Halloween pumpkins. For a healthy snack that's an edible craft, try having the kids carve jack-o-lantern faces out of the peppers, and then fill with lots of chopped veggies.

  • Salty and sweet, chocolate coated pretzels get a spooky makeover kids will go crazy for when they're molded into witch fingers.

  • Yummy mummies have been a favorite Halloween treat of ours for years! They're almost too cute to eat - operative word being almost.

    Make these little guys with a few hot dogs and a pack of crescent dinner roll dough.

  • Satisfy kids' candy cravings and toss in some added food fun at their Halloween party with this candy popcorn recipe . It's so easy to make and is a perfect treat if you're planning on popping in a spooky Halloween flick.

  • A friendly ghost is always welcome at a kids Halloween party. Not only delicious, this edible project for kids turns snack time into craft time, which means kids will be entertained at the table for longer than five minutes.
