Cute Party-Food Ideas for Kids (Or even adults!)

Saw these adorable ideas and thought I'd share them with you! Aren't they cute?

Here's a fun and super easy appetizer idea for a Christmas party. This cheese reindeer is made from Laughing Cow cheese wedge, pretzels, olive and red pepper.
(You could use a maraschino cherry for the nose)
Mini chips for the eyes :)



  • 4 flavored or plain pita folds or pita (pocket) breads (about 6 inches in diameter)
  • 16 thin pretzel sticks, halved
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup guacamole
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
  • 1/4 cup very finely chopped red bell pepper


  • Cut each pita fold into 8 wedges. Insert pretzel stick half into center of bottom of each wedge to form “tree trunk.”
  • In small bowl, mix sour cream, guacamole, parsley and garlic-pepper blend. Spread about 1 teaspoon sour cream mixture on each pita wedge.
  • Blot bell pepper with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Sprinkle about 1/4 teaspoon bell pepper on each wedge or arrange to form a garland. If desired, cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours before serving.
Notes: For variety, use cilantro in place of the parsley. If you have time, make your own guacamole. Simply mash a ripe avocado and throw in a dash of salt, lime juice and chopped garlic.

Be sure and let me know if you try them! :)
