Easy Halloween Food for KIDS!

Written by Lyndi. Posted in Halloween, Holidays, Kids & Family Life

I have the lucky job of being Max's room mom for his first grade class this year!  I love this job because my main focus is to plan all the PARTIES!  I am currently planning the Halloween party that will happen next week, and I thought I would share some ideas with you if you happen to be doing the same thing.

Now onto food...these are a few fun, super EASY (I'm all about that) ideas that I know the kids will go crazy over.  My favorite...the bloody syringe drinks!  Yum!!  Details on each food item are listed  below.

A Halloween gift tag can add the perfect touch to any plate of cookies or gift you are giving to someone special.  These gift tags will work great for neighbors, friends, teachers or any random person on the street that you want to give a Halloween treat to!  I've created five different versions of these gift tags and you can download your favorite ones for free below!  They print out perfectly on a 4x6 card. 


I wanted to change it up a bit and use some colors besides orange for these gift tags. With this one, I used black and turquoise and I love how unique it is! I bought the bag and tissue paper from Target and it all matches perfectly.


Let's eat, drink and be scary PLEASE! I think this one is my favorite...but maybe it's just the caramel apple that I am drooling over!




This gift tag will work for anyone and you can sign your name to the written message.  These cookies definitely made me lose my focus on eating healthy today...but since it's this close to Halloween, it's okay right?!?




This is a classy take on Halloween (is that even possible??) with baby blue and gray polka dots. I also bought this bag and tissue paper from Target and it is a perfect match!




There's no such thing as too much candy! I couldn't agree more...but please don't tell my kids!
