Creative Birthday Party Snacks
Kids love yummy snacks, and these creatively cute birthday party snack ideas will really make your party a hit. Yes, you will immediately become the COOLEST mom and dad, ever – only one step down from a super hero. So break out the apron and let the party begin.
1. Coney Snack Mix
Looking for easy kid’s birthday food? A no-bake snack mix in one of their favorite dessert containers (colorful ice cream cones) couldn’t get any easier! Just throw together some Teddy Grahams, pretzels, animal crackers, M&M’s, yogurt covered raisins, and anything else your kiddos love to munch on.
2. Teddy Bear Race Cars
These are adorable! This candy snack is especially fitting for a boy’s birthday party or any car themed party – made with Teddy Grahams, Milky Way bars, chocolate melts, and M&M’s or Skittles.
3. Worms In Dirt
Worms in dirt..er…. gummy worms in mashed Oreos – even better! This party snack idea might be best for an outdoor garden party, as it might get a little messy, but the kid’s will love it! Place small bowls or paper cups by the “dirt” plate so they can scoop up their own little share of awesomeness.
4. Shark Attack
With some clever carving, watermelons can make for fun and practical serving dishes. I especially like the shark idea filled with gummy fish. You can also opt to use the hollowed out watermelon to fill it back up. The blue Jell-O as the ocean water really tops it off. This would be quite the conversation starter at the dessert table!
5. Apple Smiles
This is a simple but fun party food idea that you could literally bite your teeth into. All you will need are mini marshmallows, apples, lemon juice and peanut butter! : )
6. Fish Bowl Jello
Gummy fish swimming in Gelatin, who would have thought?! I like the fish bowl idea used as a table centerpiece and individual clear plastic cups for actual serving. This would be great for any summer party.
7. Rice Krispie’s Paint Brushes
Rice Krispie’s treats have always been one of my favorite gooey desserts, but putting them on a stick and dipping them in chocolate melts is just plain genius! They would be a hit at any type of party, but would suit a paint theme especially well. If you love Rice Krispie Treats as much as I do, click here for more fun crispy treat ideas.
8. Marshmallow Fun Pops
Dip them, dunk them, coat them, eat them! How fun would these be to make? You can get creative with all sorts of fun candy coatings and toppings, and even make them to match your theme.
9. Caterpillar Grape Kabobs
A healthy birthday snack idea for kids that they will actually eat! They are made with bamboo sticks, mini chocolate chips, and frosting to hold the chips in place. Easy!
10. Banana Split Bites
You can’t see the ice-cream, but it’s tucked away inside of the banana. You can also dip the chocolate in peanuts, coconut, or anything else that your heart desires. Keep some napkins handy! They’re messy but so worth it.
