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‚ÄĒany day of the week will do ūüôā

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!

Halloween Spooky Spidersdsc_0003-005
by Debbie Steinbock

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


  1. Spread hummus on one side of each¬†cracker, so it’s thick enough to secure the spider’s 8 legs.
  2. Spread hummus on one side of another cracker and “sandwich” it shut.
  3. Dip the cut cranberries and/or raisins in a tiny bit of hummus and secure the spider’s eyes.
