Make Halloween extra fun this year with these 3 Easy Halloween Dinners for Kids. We recently turned a backyard shed into a spooky and fun Halloween Haunted House!

However the night couldn’t be complete without some ghoulish treats!  Like these Pinterest friendly Easy Halloween dinners for the kids that are always a big hit every Halloween in our home! Ghost Pizza, Mummy Hot Dogs and Eyeball Spaghetti and Meatballs. 

What’s so great about these easy Halloween foods for kids is that they can be readily made with store bought ingredients. So you can rest up and enjoy dressing up and trick or treating.

If you want to go all out and make handmade meatballs and sauce or homemade pizza crust that is completely fine and up to you too! Either way your little monsters will have fun helping you dress up Halloween dinner for a ghostly night of fun!

Eyeball Spaghetti and Meatballs – Ingredients:

  • Your favorite spaghetti sauce (we love Rao’s brand)
  • Spaghetti noodles
  • Olive oil
  • Italian meatballs 
  • Green olives
  • Sliced mozzarella cheese
  • Small round cookie cutter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1. Cook your Italian meatballs in the oven on a foil lined preheated oven. We cook ours around 30-35 minutes at 400 degrees, but it will depend on the size of your meatballs. The ones we got are around 1.5″ 
Step 2.  Cook your spaghetti noodles, drain, toss in a bit of olive oil. Add your jarred sauce, and cooked meatballs.
Step 3. With your cookie cutter, cut circles of mozzarella cheese and add one on top of each meatball. 
Step 4. Slice you olives and add one per meatball for the eye.

Mummy Hot Dogs – Ingredients:

  • Refrigerated Crescent Dough (we used Pillsbury brand)
  • Hot dogs (sliced in half)
  • Candy googly eyes
  • Ketchup


Step 1. Cut thin strips of the crescent dough and wrap around your half hot dogs leaving the top exposed to add the eyes.
Step 2. Cook in a preheated oven 375 degrees for around 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Allow to cool.
Step 3. With a toothpick or small utensil, dab a bit of ketchup to each candy eye and adhere to the hot dog face.
