Cris of Crissy's Crafts gave common toddler snacks a wicked spin for this kid-friendly Halloween party. Cheese sticks with snipped ends and a pretzel stick double as witches' brooms. A cauldron-shaped sandwich is accented with "bubbling" olives (try swapping the olives for grape halves to make it even more toddler-friendly).

Blogger Bianca Bujan of Bits of Bee gives a shout out to Pinterest for inspiring her to create a full tray of tot-friendly snacks. Oranges with a small celery stick transform into small pumpkins. Bananas get a creepy makeover as spiders with raisins for eyes and pretzel sticks for legs.
To create this healthy Halloween snack, Crystal at Surviving a Teacher's Salary used an apple, peanut butter and marshmallows as teeth. For kids with nut allergies, she suggests swapping the peanut butter for sunflower butter or another appropriate spread.

This incredibly easy idea is perfect for Halloween snacks that need to be transported to a playdate or daycare. Blogger Tonya from The Sweatman Family simply bought mandarin orange fruit cups and drew pumpkin faces on them using a Sharpie. Doesn't get much easier than that!
