What better way to get into the spooky spirit this Halloween then whipping up some fun and icky snacks for the family? So maybe the little ones aren’t up for Freddie Kruger just yet, but you can still scare up a good time with some fun food projects that are as easy to make as they are to eat. These kid-friendly kits are great for all ages and quick to make, that means more time for costume-assembly and candy eating!

Spider-Web Pizza Kit – You can never go wrong with pizza, especially when the “crust” is made of cookie dough and the toppings are gummy insects.

This pizza kit comes with everything you need to make a giant cookie pizza. Feel free to creative with the toppings. And the whole set comes in a cute tote, great for care packages.


Popcorn Ball Decorating KitMix salty and sweet with this fun popcorn ball kit. Using icy pens and decorating candies, kids can make limitless creepy and cute creations to their hearts (and stomach’s) content.

Each kit comes with 8 ready to eat popcorn balls, or if you have a large group, you can choose from a set of 24 or 100. Let’s get popping.


Zoku Pop Maker Character Kit – After all that sugar overload, it’s time to step away from the candy corn and seek out some healthier snack alternatives.

We’re huge fans of the Zoku Popsicle Maker, so naturally their new character tool kit got a the Guru stamp of approval. Kids can make monster faces and other creatures using frozen fruit and 14 different stencil shapes. Now the only thing we’re scared of is brain freeze.


Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Waffle & Pancake MixWhy wait til dessert to get your sweet fix? Start off your Halloween weekend with some pecan and pumpkin pancakes and put the kids to work in the kitchen.

Featuring a blend of cinnamon and nutmeg, it has more of a kick than your average pancakes. Perfect for pancakes or waffles, you can also try experimenting with some spooky shapes that the whole family will enjoy.
