It’s lots of fun to serve scary Halloween snacks that are made from everyday foods like dried fruit, nuts and yogurt covered raisins. Being creative with presentation and descriptions is all it takes to spark kids’ excitement for these scary treats.
Set the scene for these frightening foods— print scary signs to add imagination to your table with Spooky Tabletop Tags! Give your party food some freaky names. Cut out the cards from the scary signs on the dotted lines. Then fold them in half and set on a table. Place them next to your spooky snacks on Halloween night. Then tell your guests to go ahead and eat— we dare you! They’ll see these everyday snacks very differently.
- Monster teeth when they see almond slices
- Goblin ears when served dried apples
- Witch warts when they are given raisins
- Big scary scabs when offered dried apricots
- Ghost poop when they see yogurt covered raisins
- Frankenstein fingernails when munching sunflower seeds
