Easy Halloween Snacks For Kids

Last Halloween I was super excited to dress up with Ava. We were going to a friend's house to go trick or treating with all of the kids and I was sooo excited for Ava to reach in and grab candy with a huge smile on her face.

Spoiler Alert: She could have cared less. We grabbed a couple of pieces for her -- no smile, no reaction. But come one Jenn, were you really surprised? I know, silly me.

Okay but this year, I'm way more excited. I've narrowed it down to 7 costume options (yes, seven) and Halloween night is going to go one of two ways: She's going to be ecstatic to grab the candy and put it in her bucket OR she's going to be way too excited to eat the candy that she's going to refuse to grab more. I'm putting my bets on the latter but either way, it's going to be a good time.

So to get the festivities started and for any of you who have Halloween parties for kids going on, I've come up with two super cute and easy Halloween themed snacks for kids! They take like 30 seconds (max) per snack so the kids can join in too!
