We brought these to my daughter's kindergarten Halloween party and the kids all loved them. We used ritz crackers and had fun making them and eating them, too.

I loved the idea of this recipe, but I wanted to make it for a preschool bake sale and peanuts are forbidden. I used Vanilla Wafers instead of crackers and white frosting instead of peanut butter. They were super delicious and everybody loved them!!

I completed a language lesson with some kindergarteners and surprised them with this activity. They loved making and eating these spiders. I used cream cheese instead of peanut butter because I always worry about undiscovered peanut allergies with my young students. We also said that spiders can have more than 2 eyes so the additional Raisinets were a nice bonus! This was nice and easy with little mess and clean-up required!

My three year old loves spiders so these were a hit. She loved them even more when I let her make her own. So fun, easy, and healthy. Great combo :)

Girl Scouts Loved Them

We had an event at the library. One of my ladies read a story about a spider and then we had the girls make these spiders. They thought is was funny to eat spiders! It was great because they could do it themselves.
