1. Clementine Pumpkins and Banana Ghosts

Peal a clementine and stick a small piece of celery in the top of it, or put different sized chocolate chips into half of a banana.   These treats are not only incredibly easy and fast to put together, but they are completely all-natural and healthy.  Kids will love these too!
