Halloween Ideas For Kids
Halloween has always been one of my very favorite holidays! I have fond memories of spending Halloween at my god parent’s house when I was a child.
When we were younger all of the kids would head out trick or treating. Once all of us kids had gotten a bit older we would set up the entry way of the house as a haunted house. We would all dress in our scariest costumes– Witches, Frankenstein, scary clowns, werewolves…Dr. Chainsaw! We would decorate the entryway with the spookiest decorations. I remember a witches cauldron that kids reached into filled with cooked spaghetti (worms) and peeled grapes (eyeballs). We loved sharing the spooky season with trick or treaters. It was seriously so much fun and something that I will remember forever.
Lucky for me, my kids love a good Halloween theme! Lucky for them (and you) I’ve got some adorable Halloween cookies, bug punch, eye ball rice crispy treats, printables and crafts here on Hello Creative Family!
Have a Halloween baking party and then work on these fun Halloween crafts and printables while you munch on your treats!

Spooky Chocolate Covered Pretzels
- 1 20 ounce box Utz Halloween Pretzels 40 mini bags
- 1 12 ounce package dark chocolate chips
- 1 12 ounce package orange candy melting chocolate
- 1 package candy eyes
- Unpackage all the Halloween pretzels and set them aside.
- Place the dark chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in 30 second intervals, stir between each interval, until the chocolate is melted.
- Place the bat pretzels in the chocolate one at a time, making sure both sides of the pretzel are coated. Remove the pretzel from the chocolate with a fork and tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate.
- Transfer the covered pretzels to a baking sheet pan lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Place two candy eyes on the top of the bat, then allow the chocolate to cool and set. You can put your baking sheet in the refrigerator to speed up this process.
- Place the orange candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and melt according to the package instructions.
- Take jack o lantern pretzels and dip pretzels in the chocolate one at a time, making sure both sides of the pretzel are coated. Remove the pretzel from the chocolate with a fork and tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate drizzle.
- Transfer the covered pretzels to a baking sheet pan lined with wax paper or parchment paper and allow the chocolate to cool and set.
- Combine the two different pretzels in a bowl and serve. I like to give each child their own small bowl that they can fill with their own pretzels since hot hands can melt the chocolate.
Aren’t they just the cutest? I seriously love how they turned out so much! They are seriously so simple to make. They are perfect for school snacks and make just about everyone who sees them smile! I mean, just look at those adorable little candy eyes on the bat pretzels and tell me that they don’t make you smile?
