Easy and Fun Slumber Party Snacks for KidsPlanning a slumber party, sleepover, for your kids is great fun.

Getting together with friends, playing games, and seeing who can stay up the longest makes these parties very memorable.  Take those memories a step further by introducing a creative menu.

Get the kids involved and see if you can come up with some really great, fun, and tasty treats for your Up-All-Night crowd.

Here’s some ideas to get you started planning.

Ants on a Log

This is an easy, fun way to get those imaginations running wild.  Cut celery into small chunks before the party.  The sleepover guests can then add cream cheese or peanut butter to each one.  Then get out raisins (the ants) and the kids can stick as many raisins as they like on the celery sticks.

Watch the giggles start when they gobble up those ‘ants’ stuck on the gooey ‘log.’  Not only are these treats fun and tasty, they are also healthy.  You don’t have to worry about a late-night sugar high turning your party into chaos.

Cupcake Creations

Half the fun of cupcakes is decorating them.  Have the cupcakes ready and waiting for your overnight guests to decorate to their hearts content.  I recommend mini-cupcakes so each party-goer can decorate and eat more than one.  Lay out a supply of  different frosting colors, writing gels, candies, sprinkles, and any edible embellishments you can think of.

The more the merrier.  Prepare the area, and yourself, for a mess!  But, also be prepared for some great memories and lots of perfect picture opportunities.

Remember the Rice Krispies

A classic like this never goes out of style, for many reasons.  They are easy to make and you can get the kids involved right from the beginning.  Measuring, counting the marshmallows, stirring, and pressing out the treats are jobs that kids of slumber party age can do with a little bit of supervision.  Once the base is formed, the rest is pure pleasure.  Again, you want to go overboard with the edible decorations.

Remember to include melted chocolate and peanut butter for these treats.  But also consider candies, frosting, sprinkles, and even food coloring.  It’s all about having fun making this popular treat, even before having fun eating them.

Pizza Party

Sure, you can make a couple big pizzas and cut them up to serve, but why?  This may fill tummies but it’s not a whole lot of fun for the kids.  Instead, have the guests assemble their own pizza and choose the toppings they want.

Make this process all about the fun of creating individual pizzas, with lots and lots of possibilities.  Start simply with small tortillas or rolled out refrigerator biscuits for crusts to make this snack super easy.

Then let the cooking games begin!  Get a selection of sauces, cooked meats, sausages, pepperoni, mushrooms, tomatoes, other vegetables, pineapple, other fruits, cheeses, and a variety of toppings to satisfy all their taste buds and imaginations.

Watermelon Cut Outs

This is a nice treat for summertime slumber parties.  Slice the watermelon into about one inch thick circles or semi-circles.  Lay the watermelon out on a work surface and put a pile of cookie cutters in the middle.  The guests can use the cookie cutters to cut the watermelon into shapes they like.

Arrange the watermelon shapes on a big tray and share the ‘cookies’ with all the party-goers.  This is a refreshing treat late at night after the pizza or other heavier foods.  You can do this with other fruit as well and create a mix-and-match tray with a variety of different shapes for each guest to enjoy.

You want to do two things when it comes to a slumber party – keep the kids busy and don’t mind the mess.  When it comes to creating memories, getting everyone involved in preparing the food and snacks is a wonderful idea.  This is something your kids and their friends will remember for years to come.

Keeping Your Child Healthy

When parents think about their child’s health, it is important that they not only consider the physical wellbeing of the child, but the psychological and social health as well.

This broad field of children’s health includes psychological issues surrounding mood, behavior, learning, and concentration, as well as physical areas such as appetite, bedwetting, fever, sleep, chicken pox, tantrums, weight loss, and more.

It even includes complicated, and increasingly diagnosed behavioral health issues like Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Learn more about natural remedies from Native Remedies and how they can help your child’s health now!
