Nothing scares up the ghosts and goblins at your Halloween party like festive food. Halloween recipes for kids can be found in a variety of places. Here we've got some fun family Halloween recipes for bones of all kinds. Some of these Halloween recipes for children are so easy that the kids can prepare them! I hope you have fun!

Bone Sandwiches

Cut bone sandwiches out of sliced bread with a bone shaped cookie cutter (or just with a knife if you can't find one). It's also cute to cut sliced cheese with different Halloween shaped cookie cutters.

Crunchy Bones

These meringue cookies are piped into the bone shape.

3 egg whites

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

pinch of salt

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 225. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. Beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar and salt until foamy. One spoonful at a time, add sugar, beating well after each addition so that the sugar is absorbed into the meringue. Continue beating until the meringue stands up in a glossy, firm peak when you lift the beaters out of the bowl. Beat in the vanilla.

3. Spoon meringue into a pastry decorating bag with a plain round tip approximately 3/8-inch (1 cm) wide. Pipe 3-inch (7.5 cm) bone shapes, a long line with two rounded blobs on each end. (You need to do this step all at once because it will deflate if it sits too long.)

4. Place both cookie sheets in the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour. Without opening the oven door, turn the heat off and let the meringues sit in the oven for another hour until dry and crisp.

5. Be careful not to break the bones when you remove from the cookie sheets.

Skeleton Bone Cookies

Super easy shaping on these bone cookies!

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tsp grated orange peel
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped salted almonds

1. Beat egg whites, sugar, orange peel and baking powder with an electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Gradually add nuts and flour, beating until mixture is thoroughly blended.

2. Cover and chill until firm - at least an hour or up to a day. Lightly flour your hands and pinch off a three-tablespoon size piece of dough.

3. On a lightly floured board, use both palms to roll out an 8-inch long rope. Cut rope in half and roll each half out again to 8 inches. Fold an inch of each end back onto rope and pinch ends to make bone shapes.

4. Repeat to shape all the dough. Place bones an inch apart on buttered and flour-dusted baking sheets. Bake in a 325 F oven about 20 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned on bottoms.

Bone Breadsticks

Bone-shaped breadsticks are great for dipping in stew or dips. It's super easy with refrigerated pizza dough. If you don't have a bone-shaped cookie or biscuit cutter, cut a stencil out of thick cardboard and use a sharp knife to cut the dough out around it.

  • 18 oz roll of refrigerated pizza dough
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp or Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • bone-shaped cookie cutter or stencil

  1. Roll out pizza dough on a cutting board. If you are using a cardboard stencil, brush the dough with olive oil so that it will not stick to the cardboard.
  2. Use a cookie cutter or a stencil and a knife to cut bone shapes out of the dough.
  3. Place bones on greased cookie sheet.
  4. Sprinkles with seasoning, garlic salt and parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes, or until breadsticks are golden brown.
