Orange Brains: How to make this Healthy Halloween Snack for kids


  • 1 orange for each child.
  • A handful of berries. I used frozen berries but you can use fresh ones if you have on hand.
  • Some cupcake toppers.

Optional  Party Food Ideas

  • Clementines
  • Fresh squeezed orange juice
  • Some Spooky shooter cups. I got those from the Dollar Store.
  • Some nuts (if no kids are allergic).
  • Plastic mini Halloween pumpkins.

 Make it

Orange brain:

  • Wash the oranges.
  • Let the children draw a scary face on the orange. It is less mess than carving the eyes, mouth, etc.
  • Cut the top and scoop the inside of the oranges. The children can eat it or you can use it as a topper. I prefer eating it. This step should be done by an adult.
  • Wash the berries and give them to their children. Let them fill the orange with the berries. If children are not allergic, they can top them with some nuts too.

They can peel the clementine and top them with a cupcake topper, while others can fill in the shooters.

That’s really all it takes to have an  awesome Halloween party table as well as delicious healthy Halloween snacks for kids.
