Easy to Make Healthy Halloween Treats

As usual, the kids are going to get overloaded with treats this Halloween. So here is a selection of healthy Halloween treats that your kids will enjoy helping to create.

Jack O’Lantern Clementines

This one is an easy one.  Gather a bunch of clementines and draw Jack O’Lantern faces on each one. Great to throw into your child’s lunch kit for school!


Create Your Own Pumpkin Patch

Another easy one. Peel a bunch of clementines, then  add a piece of celery into the top of each one for a stem.

**The kids gobbled them as we were preparing them!


Ghostly Frozen Banana Treats

This one requires a little bit more time, but the kids will love them.

Halloween Idea: Spooky Ghostly Balloons

Halloween is in 4 sleeps…and our family has YET to decorate the pumpkins on our doorstep. We’ll get to it, I’m sure.

However, we HAVE made spooky ghost balloons! They are the perfect decoration and take little time to prepare.

What You’ll Need

  • black marker
  • white balloon
  • green glowing bracelets



1. Activate a glowing bracelet (keep in mind the length of time that the bracelet will continue to glow…most are between 4-8 hours)

2. Inflate a balloon. Just before tying the balloon closed, insert the glowing bracelet.

3. Once inflated and tied off, draw a ghostly face on the balloon. The goofier and spookier, the better.

Finally, find a dark place to hang up the balloon, such as in the basement, in a hallway or hanging from a tree.

Set them up an hour or so before you expect Trick ‘or Treaters!
