Food can go from the simple…. just the cupcakes…. to the complex…. let each kid make their own pizza! You decide how much you want to do. The timing of the party may also dictate the menu. If the party is in the middle of the afternoon, you are under no obligation to give anyone a meal. But… if the party runs over lunch… hungry kids get cranky. Uck.
Caramel corn mixed with candy corn
Tortilla chips and guacamole (call it mushed brains…)
Pumpkin shaped cookies
Bat Cookies– Bat shaped sugar cookies on a stick
Fruit Salad I usually make it out of grapes and melon balls for kids… you can pretend it’s eyeballs.
Sausage Mummies– you will need little sausages and a tube of crescent roll dough. Cut the dough into thin strip, a few inches long. Wrap the sausages up, bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with ketchup.
Pizza Faces– Some pizza places make pizza with a Jack-o-Lantern face. You can also let the kids make mini pizzas on boboli crusts, pita bread or english muffins. Supply pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoini slices, and maybe a few veggies… let them have fun creating their own.
Snake Sandwich– Get a long baguette and slice it horizontally. Layer on the fillings you think they will eat… turkey or ham is usually a good bet…I’d hold back on the condiments and serve them separately. Slice into 3 inch lengths… then lay the segments like they are a wavy snake on a serving platter. Stick some olives on for eyes… and maybe a strip of tomato for the tongue.
Fried Worms– Bar b Que worms on a bun! YUM!!
Chicken Drumsticks or Nuggets – Call them Bat wings….
Taquitos- Pretend they are skeletons…
Of course every party needs cake… or Cupcakes…Try these recipes
