The kids and I have been making our Halloween Boo-nana Ghosts for over two years now. It doesn’t have to be Halloween to make them—any day of the week will do 🙂
I wanted to come up with a new Halloween-themed recipe for kids that is also simple and healthy. I thought that I accomplished it on my first try, until I was told by my kids that, “spiders always have 8 legs, not 6!” Is that common knowledge everyone but me knew? Apparently!
These Spooky Spiders are easy and fun to create. I wrote up this recipe using hummus and cranberries/raisins for eyes (pictured above). We have also made them with chocolate hazelnut butter and chocolate chips for eyes as well (pictured below).
Create, play, and enjoy!
Crackers (such as these diamond shaped or circular ones)
Carrots, celery, bell peppers and/or cucumbers, sliced very thinly for legs
Cranberries and/or raisins, cut in half for eyes
- Spread hummus on one side of each cracker, so it’s thick enough to secure the spider’s 8 legs.
- Spread hummus on one side of another cracker and “sandwich” it shut.
- Dip the cut cranberries and/or raisins in a tiny bit of hummus and secure the spider’s eyes.
