Food for Kids Party

Let’s plan some food for Kids Party! And make some alien snacks, alien Halloween props, and Halloween alien decorations.

I love to decorate and make some treats to eat for Halloween! This year, I enlisted a little help from my granddaughter and got inspiration from some of my son’s favorite things as a kid to come up with a fun Alien Space Party theme!

Here’s how we did it! First, find the perfect location! We chose the party gazebo for our spooky spot! We hung some sparkly gray netting at the top to make it look like stars. We also hung a few planets. Aliens have to have some fun places to visit!

Where are those alien puppets that I packed away all those years ago? I don’t know, but I found an alien bowl and an old spaceship I made quite a few years ago, which we freshened up.

A great Halloween party needs some good food, and it seems that many families get so busy with costumes, parties, and trick-or-treating that no one has anything substantial to eat.

So, we planned a meal containing protein, healthy fats, fruit, and whole grains, so if there is no time to sit down, the little goblins will be nourished and fed! But presented in a delicious and fun way that everyone will gobble it. Check out these spooky, healthy Halloween snack ideas that are also plant-based.

These make-ahead Halloween party appetizers can be ready before trick or treating or after.

They are out of this world!

Let’s make some healthy Halloween snack ideas for the Alien Party!

Halloween cracker with olive recipe
Simple and savory, these little snacks are very filling!

Alien Eyeballs

This simple but substantial snack is easy to make but festive enough to serve to your guests! Depending on your guests, make as many as you need. This can make a great make-ahead Halloween party appetizer idea.

Serving size 2-3 crackers.

One jar green olives with pimentos

Carton of fresh mini mozzarella cheese balls, sliced into 1/8-1/4 inch slices

Your favorite crackers that set well under a mozzarella ball

On a platter, add the crackers and top with mozzarella cheese and an olive. Make extras if needed, or if you are going to have a smaller gathering, save extra crackers, olives, and mozzarella cheese balls for other meals during the week if you don’t need to use all of them.

Space Crunch

When having a Halloween Alien Space Party, you must have a little space crunch! Vary it to suit your taste! This also makes a great make-ahead Halloween party appetizer.

Serving size 1/2-3/4 cup

6 cups popped popcorn

1 cup pumpkin seeds (you could do a combination of nuts/seeds if desired)

3 cups whole grain cereal (I used some oat squares, but mix it up if you like)

5-ounce dried cherries (but you can use whatever kind of fruit you like)

Mix up these ingredients in a blow and serve!

Halloween fruit kabob recipes
For a fun Halloween Party, find a fun theme and some simple, delicious recipes!

Rocket Ship Fruit Kabobs

As my granddaughter told me, the pointed tip of the strawberry makes a perfect top of the rocket, and the orange color from the canteloupe makes a great fire for the ship to “blast off”! I hope that you love them also.

The amount of fruit you need depends on how many you want to make for your party! We purchased a box of strawberries that we stemmed, and I purchased pre-cut canteloupe and pineapple to thread on the bamboo shish kebob sticks. Purchase more if needed, or make a fruit salad with the leftovers!

Halloween Party Snack Ideas
Sometimes, the most simple beverages can be the tastiest!

Cosmic Punch

Simplicity is key to this punch recipe. All it is orange juice, sparking water and sliced oranges, lemons and limes. It just reminds me of the cosmos for some reason! Not that I have been there to my knowledge!
