Halloween Charcuterie Board Ideas For Kids

Get inspired by plastic skeletons and a whole lot of treats.


Halloween is a blast for kids, but here’s what I love about it as a mom: it’s a great night for “picky bits” dinner. My mom calls it that when everyone just eats little bites because they’re too excited for a full meal, and a Halloween charcuterie board is the best Picky Bits.

This looks like your typical charcuterie board until you catch sight of those mozzarella eyeballs wrapped in prosciutto. They look easy enough to make, and then you can just add some plastic spiders to creep up your snacks.

I can not get over how creepy this skeleton charcuterie board is. Using meat to line a Halloween skull decoration can really give you the ultimate Halloween charcuterie board.

OK, let’s not pretend like Halloween isn’t all about sweet treats. Turn your charcuterie board into a dessert board with some Halloween favorites like candy corn and spooky-shaped snacks with more plastic spiders to adorn the sides.Shutterstock
And if you’re not feeling all the candy, you can go for a mixture of things like caramel corn and Halloween cupcakes to create a beautiful Halloween board.


And now that you’ve had some Halloween charcuterie board inspiration, here are some things to help you create the Halloween snack board of your dreams.
