Bat Snack Bags
Bat snack bags make an easy and fun Halloween treat for kids! This post is sponsored by Horizon Organic, though all opinions are my own.
Halloween is upon us and our kids and their friends are bursting with excitement. Costumes are ready to go and festivities lined up. Our favorite Halloween movies have been playing on repeat. Hocus Pocus is my personal favorite. I never get tired of those three crazy witches.
For a Halloween play date this week the kids and I made bat snack bags. The pretty butterfly version of these snack bags is common as a school or post soccer game snack. I’m not sure who came up with the clever butterfly snack bag idea, unfortunately. They are easy to make and kids love them. Creating a spooky Halloween makeover for the butterfly bags was easy and we had all the supplies at home already. I wanted to share these with you in case you’re looking for an easy last-minute Halloween treat.
Snack bags take just a few minutes to assemble and can be filled with any dark foods you like. We used dark purple grapes and Horizon Organic chocolate grahams. Please note: young children should never be given whole grapes. They should be cut lengthwise into quarters as whole grapes pose a choking hazard. I still cut grapes for my 7 year old. For a special Halloween treat we used Horizon chocolate grahams. I love the rich chocolatey flavor in these little bite-sized cookies. I also like that they are made with organic whole wheat flour and cocoa. Other dark Halloween fillers could include: raisins, blackberries, blueberries, olives and seaweed snacks. Can you think of any others?
We used regular wooden clothespins for our bats’ bodies, and painted them black. I think some black or silver glitter would make these even better! Some craft stores carry clothespins in a variety of colors, but we used what we already had in our craft supplies. For the bats’ eyes we tried small google eyes as well as painted on eyes.
Aren’t they cute? These bat snack bags are a fun craft for kids to help make and are just as fun to eat. Whether for a Halloween party or play date, or for a school party, these friendly bats are as kid-friendly as it gets.
Quick fact: a group of bats is called a colony or a cloud!

Notes: Make sure your grapes aren't too wet and the bats aren't assembled too far in advance or the grahams will get stale or soggy.
