The children love Halloween and every year, we always have some dress up sessions and spend some time making spooky pictures and playing Halloween related games and activities.

We’ve scoured the Internet and found these very simple ‘Halloween’ snacks that will make mealtime fun and that are easy to make at home – perfect for creating a ‘Spooky’ Halloween tea!


Spider Sandwiches:

Spider Sandwich

Turn boring sandwiches into a bit of fun  – using your favourite fillings – think that tuna or cream cheese works well. All you need for these sandwiches is a round pastry cutter and some Twiglets or straight pretzels, plus your usual bread and a filling of your choice.  For the eyes, raisins, olives or blueberries.

For a sweet treat, the sandwich in this picture has been made using peanut butter for the filling and chocolate chips for the eyes.


Witch’s Cheese Sticks:Cheese Broomstick

For these, you will need some pre-bought cheese sticks (available from most supermarkets), some chives and some straight pretzels. Each cheese stick will make three broomsticks:

  • Simply divide the cheese stick into three.
  • Cut the cheese stick at one end lengthways into 6 or 7 so to make the broom head.
  • At the end that isn’t cut, push the pretzel into the cheese to make the broomstick.
  • Tie a chive around the top of the cheese for decoration.
