Some of these goodies aren’t quite as healthy as the last 10 we posted (click here for gluten-free, nut-free, healthy Halloween treats) but they don’t take long to make, are kid-friendly and will bring rave reviews…

1)  Spooky Halloween Popcorn Hands from Yummy Healthy Easy
Kids have so much fun playing with these, plus they love the ring that they can keep…
