My kids love Halloween and as soon as the fall decor hits the shelves, my family is ready to jump straight to Halloween. I’m always looking for fun ways to incorporate “spooktacular” Halloween finger foods for snacks. If you’re looking for a fun way to get healthy snacks into your kids, these Halloween finger foods will do the trick (with little treats). The best part about all of these snacks? They’re healthy and available for pickup or delivery from Walmart!

Halloween Finger Foods
As a mom trying to make sure my little munchkins eat a well-balanced and nutritious diet, I’m always trying to think outside the box. My kids live for snacks. I mean, if they could, they would snack 24/7 and not eat a meal. When looking for ways to sneak in healthy fruits and veggies, fun themed finger foods will do the trick. Again, with little treats, can’t help myself. After being away from my kids for a week, I decided to do something special to spoil them for an after school snack and to welcome in the fall season. I know my kids will love snacking on this after a long day at school, and I can feel good knowing I’m serving them high quality and healthy options from Walmart!
Moving on, what is a finger food? Finger foods are simply foods that can conveniently be eaten with fingers. Also known as… a dream snack for my children. We’re not eating fingers around here, although I’ve seen cute Frankenstein fingers for appetizers, but today I’m sharing my favorite quick Halloween themed finger foods! The best part about all of these Halloween snacks? The kids can help decorate and put them together, you might end up missing a few candy eyes though.
1. Banana Ghosts
These are ridiculously easy to make and took no time at all. First, peel the fresh bananas and make sure you keep the edges pointy. I smushed a few and was able to reshape them. Then, you just stick on the candy eyes. You can also use decorative gel frosting as well.
2. Spider Sandwiches
Ok, how cute are these little sandwiches? You can use your imagination and use anything from chicken salad (if your kids will eat that) or plain peanut butter. I made several sandwiches and then cut them in a circle with a cup. A cookie cutter or biscuit cutter will work as well! Then, you’ll need pretzel sticks for the legs. I just wedged them in and they stay put! Finally, add in the candy eyes and your kids are sure to love this Halloween finger food!
3. Hummus Pumpkin
Hummus is a delicious and nutritious snack and when paired with celery and carrots, we’re winning in the veggie department! I filled these cute pumpkin bowls from Walmart with hummus and drew a few lines on to make it look more realistic. Finally, I peeled a few stripes on the cucumber and voila, you have a pumpkin hummus bowl!
4. Ghost Cheese
Another simple finger food that the kids will love, this is ghoushily cute! First, take a pack of cheese sticks (still in package) and separate them into individual sticks. Then, using a marker, color little eyes on the package. Put them in a cup and that’s it! Not exactly goat cheese, you’ve got ghost cheese (and good thing because my kids only eat mozzarella)!
5. Mandarin Orange Pumpkins
Last but not least, we have mini pumpkins as finger foods. If we’re lucky, they’ll eat the celery stem as well! You’ll start by peeling the little mandarins and gently remove as many strings as you can… because you know how picky toddlers can be about their fruit. “Eweeee strings, yucky,” and I know you get it! Try to keep them all in one piece then place a small piece of celery in the opening. This tasty halloween finger food is a crowd favorite and honestly, it’s just an orange. It’s crazy what a little imagination will do to help the picky eaters!
