Ideas needed!

Ok so I am a first time room mom for my daughter's kindergarten class. We are having a "Storybook Character Day" (also known as Halloween) on Friday and all I ever remember about school parties is out the window because we are living in quite a different world now. We have to be sensitive to those who don't celebrate Halloween, we can't make any of the snacks (they must be pre-packaged), and the snacks have to be healthy. So I am trying to come up with something creative to do with all of these rules on my head. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Scooby Doo fruit snacks. $1.50 a box at Winco. I would have Lindsay dress up as one of the wicked step-sisters from Cinderella. Put blood on her face for the time right after they beat up Cinderella before the ball. Or like the Brothers Grimm version have no eyes for when the birds came and pecked her eyes out and the end of the story. Happy Halloween!

Uh- thanks for the help, I think? I was thinking of getting some kind of trail mix but I have to find out if there are any peanut allergies. When did it get so complicated?
