Pumpkin Fruit Skewers for Halloween
The pumpkin fruit skewers pictured above are super quick and easy to make. I found the witch parts at Dollar Tree and stuck them in the pumpkin- so easy!
Then, I placed grapes and strawberries on skewers and inserted them into the pumpkin. I pushed the skewers in as far as they could go so they are securely in place. I don’t recommend letting the kids try to pull out the skewers, just let them pull one piece of fruit off at a time and assign an adult to supervise.
I left the tops on the strawberries because the green adds a little pop of color and gives the effect of hair on the pumpkin- but you could cut the tops off and it would still look cute.
Fruit and Veggie Treat Cups for Halloween
In the bottom of the yellow treat cups are individual servings of caramel dipping sauce in condiment cups with lids. Of course, you could skip the caramel sauce if a child has food restrictions.
In the bottom of the orange cups are individual servings of ranch dressing. There are green apple slices in the yellow cups and veggies (broccoli, carrots and celery) in the orange cups.
Click on the picture below to print as many copies of the fruit and veggie treat toppers as you need on cardstock; then cut out each topper and tape to a toothpick. The toppers can then be placed in the treat cups.
You could also use a circle punch to cut out the treat toppers if you have one that is the correct size. In the picture above I attached the treat toppers to toothpicks and stuck them in the lids of the condiment cups so they would be secure.
I suggest preparing the fruit and veggie treat toppers in advance or have a parent helper assemble them for you.
There you have it, two healthy Halloween party treat ideas!
