Halloween Party Snack for Kids

Have I ever shared with you that I’m relatively new to my neighborhood? I’ve probably mentioned in the past that I’m a Los Angeleno native, born and raised. Athough I’m still within driving distance from my hometown, I still feel like a Los Angeleno at heart, living in, what I used to call in my youth, “The Burbs”.

Now that my little one has reached the age where she enjoys playing with other kids her age, I joined a local neighborhood mom’s group to socialize with other moms and their kids. I guess in a way this is my way of trying to fully embrace my life in The Burbs, make new friends in a town where I have few friends, and make the most of the town where my husband and I are raising our kids. While I’m new to this group, I’ve already met some very nice moms and Bebe E is enjoying our extra outings.

The other day we attended a neighborhood Halloween party and Bebe E was so excited about dressing up in her little costume and going to the party. I threw together a really quick and easy snack mix using some of Bebe E’s favorite things that I had in our pantry. It’s “chex mix” for 3 -year olds!

I added pretzel and cheese goldfish, organic fruit gummies (my daughter’s favorite snack), and mini yogurt chips. Unfortunately, given our crazy schedule that day, I didn’t get a chance to run out to the market, otherwise I would have also included mini oreos (yet another Bebe E favorite), chocolate s’more goldfish and mini marshmallows. :) I might have even considered adding some roasted pumpkin seeds (follow link for recipe) to this mix if I had some on hand. What would you add to yours or your child’s favorite snack mix?

While I was trying to take photos of the snack mix, Bebe E was trying to find out what goodies I had placed in our Jack-O-Lantern. Every Halloween I buy a few of Nene and my husband’s favorite candies and keep them in our plastic orange pumpkin as treats to snack on. Although Bebe E knows that she can’t eat candy, she likes to pull them out and give them to us as our “trick-or-treat”. As always, when I’m taking photos, she is right at my side, ready to “assist”.

We’re really trying to make the most of this Halloween season because Bebe E is at the perfect age where she enjoys each seasonal holiday (Valentine’s Day, Easter, etc) – crafts, food, parties, dressing up, treats – AND, it’s one of my favorite holidays. We have two Halloween celebrations planned this weekend and last weekend we went to a Pumpkin Harvest Festival (I’ll share more in the future), so Bebe E is in full holiday celebration mode. Next week she has a costume party at her nursery school and trick-or-treat plans so you can imagine how excited she is about all of the festivities. I admit I’m having a lot of fun too. My husband likes to say that Bebe E is exactly like her mother. :)

I hope you’re enjoying this Halloween season as much as we are!
