Fun and spooky Halloween food ideas for any kids' party

Party food is always an essential at any kids' party. With a Halloween party it's also important that at least some of the party food is spooky. This helps to create the Halloween mood.

Creating your own spooky Halloween kids' party food isn't as hard as you'd think. Many families make it a fun family activity with children helping with things like cookie icing. It's also a good money saver when you can turn basic party foods like Moon Cakes into Halloween treats.

These how-to videos I've chosen give some really great ideas for spooky kids' Halloween party food. There's Mummy pizza and cookies, Spider cookies and cupcakes. Ghost cakes, cupcakes and other fun Halloween treats.

Halloween Cookies to Make

Mummy and Spider Halloween Cookies

Cookies are a fabulous kids' party food. They're even better at Halloween if they're spooky as well as tasty. 

This video shows how to make spooky Mummy and Spider cookies. These cookies have three things you want when you're organizing a Halloween party. They look great. They're yummy. But they're easy to make too.

The Spider Cookies are made from peanut butter dough. But if your child is allergic to peanuts, or you want to be peanut-free at the party, you can swap the peanut dough for something else. 

Decorating cookies is also a fun Halloween activity for school age kids. Or younger kids if you don't mind the cookies being a little less than perfect. They'll still taste great.
