When you are in charge of snack it can be a bit daunting if your school has lots of rules as ours does. I am always on the hunt for healthy Halloween snacks that I can bring to class parties!
Halloween Snacks for Kids Supplies:
- Fruit Cups (orange in color – mandarin oranges, peaches, fruit in orange jello)
- Green pipe cleaners
- Hot Glue gun & Glue Sticks
- Black Sharpie
- Electronic Cutting machine (optional) – Cricut or Silhouette
- Black Vinyl & Transfer Tape (optional)
- Jack-o-Lantern Face SVG’s (found below)
How to Make Pumpkin Fruit Cup Snacks:
If you want to keep the treats fall-themed and not specifically Halloween themed, make some cute pumpkin fruit cup snacks!
Start by cutting a green pipe cleaner in half. Fold the bottom inch or so over into a small loop to create a stem.
Wrap the tail around the bottom of the loop and then curl it around a pencil to create the vine.
Hot glue the stem to either the top or the bottom of the fruit cup. You can see it done both ways here.
Now you have some adorable healthy Halloween Party Snacks!
If you want to make these themed Halloween fruit cup snacks, then you can add some cute jack-o-lantern faces. There are several ways to do this!
The first and easiest way is to simply draw the faces on using a permanent sharpie marker!
Another way is to use your Cricut or Silhouette cutting machine and cut the faces from some black vinyl. Using transfer tape to transfer the faces to the snack cups. You can find everything you need to know about Vinyl here.
You can cut the vinyl and add it to the tops of the fruit cups, the same place you would draw the face on with a sharpie! Just add the stem and vine to the side of the fruit cup.
Or you can add them to the sides of the cups and place the stems on the top!
You know I love giving lots of options so that you can find the version that is best for you or that you have the supplies for already at home!
