Spider Snacks

Have the children make their own spider’s out of chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting, shoe-string licorice, and mini m & m’s. All the kids love to decorate and eat their spiders! Remember to take off cupcake wrappers before decorating!

Oreo Spiders.

For each spider take one oreo cookie (or similar chocolate sandwich cookie).Insert 4 small pretzel sticks in each side for the legs. Using peanut butter or marshmallow fluff make eyes on top of cookie from 2 choc chops or 2 raisins. My class of 3-year-olds love these!

Yummy Spinning Spiders in their webs!

Materials: black paper plate, cooked spaghetti noodles, oatmeal pie, pretzel sticks, raisins, gummy bugs On a black paper plate, give each child a handful of spaghetti noodles to create a web. The noodles will automatically stick to the paper plate. Then place an oatmeal pie in your “web” for the spider’s body. Give each child 8 pretzel sticks for the legs and 2 raisins for the eyes. Last give each child some gummy bugs to lay in the web for spider food. Once the creations are done, happy eating!!!
