What are halloween treats that young kids can help make?

This is all I have found so far:

http://familyfun.go.com/recipes/special/feature/famf0902spider/

I’d like for it to be easy. I will have a 5 year old and a 2 year old and myself making these. I just want some fun treats we can make to get in the spirit of Halloween. A bonus would be if they are relatively healthy, cheap, and easy to make. Thanks!!

    Make a pan of rice krispy treats and let them set. Cut them out with a ghost shape cookie cutter (a little warm water to dip the cutter in will make it easier). Set the ghosts out on a cookie sheet to the side. Melt a bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave with 1 tablespoon of Crisco. Stir until smooth. dip the tops of the ghosts in the chocolate and then press on brown M&M’s or chocolate chips to make the eyes. Let the chocolate set up and cool on the cookies before storing air tight. A small child could help with the dipping and placing on the candy eyes.

    Another easy idea is to lay out pumpkin seeds on a baking tray lined with parchment when you carve your jack o lanterns. (remove the goo around the seeds first). Let the kids sprinkle on salt OR a mix of cinnamon and sugar. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes at 350 (until the seeds are slightly browned). Remove and let cool. Store airtight and enjoy for a snack.

    Make a batch of sugar cookie dough. Roll out 1/4 inch thick and cut triangles from it. Bake to directions and then take a large can of white frosting. Divide it 3 ways and color 1 orange, 1 yellow and leave the last one white. Frost to look like candy corn pieces. You could also use colored sugars that the kids could help sprinkle on.

    dip pretzel rods half way up in chocolate that you melt and let the kids roll them in sprinkles, chopped nuts, coconut or other things that would be small enough to stick without a mess. Let them set up on a cookie sheet.

    My 2 year old loves to make "mummy sandwiches" at halloween. They are easy to make. You need a package of puff pastry (filo dough), string cheese, cut the sticks in half, a jar of pimentos (the red things in the center of olives) and ham or turkey slices cut in half. Roll up a cheese stick half with a half slice of the ham or turkey. Cut the filo dough into strips and wrap around the meat and cheese sticks to look like bandages. Bake in a 350 degree oven until the filo is golden and remove. It won’t take very long! Add pimentos for eyes and serve warm (or also good when cool). You have "mummies" to munch! (these also make a cute lunch for preschool or child centers where you need to send lunch for your child around halloween!)

    In a zip bag add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, pinch of nutmeg and shake together. Set aside. Take a package of refridgerated biscuit dough (we like it with the grands biscuits in the butter flavor for this). Cut the biscuits into quarters. The kids can put the dough pieces into the zip bag and shake it up to coat the dough. Lay out on a baking sheet so they aren’t touching and bake to package directions until the pieces are golden. If you want an easy dip take a package of cream cheese, softened, 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar, a tablespoon of milk, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 tablespoon of orange juice. Whip until creamy and smooth and put in a small bowl on the side to dip your "donuts" in.

    These are delicious: Halloween popcorn balls….

    These treats are great to hand out too. Just wrap each individual treat in plastic wrap. You can make these up to three days in advance.
    Ingredients:
    •8 cups popcorn
    •1 cup candy corn
    •1 bag of marshmallows
    •1/4 cup butter – plus extra to grease hands
    Preparation:
    In a large mixing bowl pour in candy corn and popcorn. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Then melt marshmallows, stirring consistantly. When the marshmallows are melted, pour over the popcorn and candy corn. Mix together with a large spoon. Be sure candy corn gets mixed in as it weighs more than the popcorn and tends to go to the bottom of the bowl. When cool enough to handle, grease hands with butter and begin forming 2-inch balls. Makes 15 – 20 balls.
