15 funny-looking snacks that are great for children’s parties

Moms all over the world always wonder what to cook for kids and their young guests at a birthday party or any other children's event. All parents just want their kids to have festive lunches or dinners!

Bright Side suggests you take a look at some simple but delicious dishes that are decorated in interesting and funny ways. Your kids will definitely love these!

Caramel apples

To make this dish, you need to pierce the apples with wooden skewers or chopsticks, dip them in caramel, and roll them in nut crumbs or sesame seeds.

Watermelon ice-cream

This is a healthy alternative to ice cream. Cut the watermelon into triangles and insert a wooden popsicle stick into each piece.

Mini pizza

Often, kids hardly finish huge slices of pizza (which is good for hungry parents, of course). A mini pizza, though, is a perfect choice for children's parties. You can also decorate the pizzas by placing colorful flags with kids' names on them. 

Snail cookies

To add a bit of fun to ordinary cinnamon rolls, twist the dough's ends together to make a 'snail.'

Hot dogs

Even ordinary hot dogs can look different if you put them vertically on a plate and tie them with a spring onion.

Sausage mummies

To make these cute sausage mummies, wrap each sausage with a strip of dough and seal the ends. Then, just make eyes for them.

Funny sandwiches

Your kid can make their favorite cartoon character using an ordinary sandwich with cheese. All you have to do is just guide his or her fantasy and imagination in the right direction.

Marshmallow pops

Insert wooden skewers into marshmallows then dip them in chocolate and sprinkle them with colorful sprinkles. Then, just place them in a glass full of candies and M&Ms.


Owls, bears, caterpillars, and cats — everyone will love these charming animal-shaped pancakes!


No kid can say 'no' to a dessert, especially if it's decorated with a funny face! You can make small portions of any dessert and decorate them like this to avoid cutting it into pieces.

Penguin snacks

Black olives, cheese and carrots are all you need to make a penguin army.

Fruits in waffle cones

To serve fruit in waffle cones, just put berries or a mix of berries and other fruit pieces inside.

Chocolate-dipped bananas

You can make small penguins using bananas that aren't fully covered with chocolate. Use orange M&Ms to make their legs and noses.

Quail eggs

Look at what cute chicks can be 'born' from quail eggs! Use cherry tomatoes and radishes to make small amanitas and little mice.

Meatballs with spaghetti

As a main meal, you can cook meatballs with spaghetti, serving them like 'faces' on a plate. Use green peas and fresh herbs to make eyes and bows. Bon appetit!


To get the banana-kiwi "hybrid", cut a banana in halves and then put a kiwi slice on it. Your guests will be amazed!
