Make Spider Sandwiches
If you're looking for a fun way to jazz up your child's lunch, here's a snacktivity for you: Spider Sandwiches! Don't lose your curds and whey over these spiders. These sublime sandwiches are easy to make out of wheat bread, sandwich spread, and cheese curls and are a fun part of any child's meal. They can also make up a delicious tray for a Halloween get-together or a fun and healthy after-school snack.
Serves: 3 to 5
Cook Time: 30 minutes
What You Need:
- 2 slices wheat sandwich bread per person
- Sandwich spread, such as peanut butter, tuna salad, soft cheese
- 1⁄2 can cheese curls or pretzel sticks
- Cookie cutter, 21⁄2" round
- Plain paper plates
- Black permanent marker
What You Do:
- Place the bread slices on the work surface. Cut a circle from each bread slice with the cookie cutter.
- Divide the bread circles into two equal piles.
- Spread about two tablespoons of the sandwich spread on all of the bread circles in one pile.
- Press eight cheese curls or pretzel sticks in the sandwich spread half way around each circle to make the legs of the spider.
- Place the remaining bread circle on top of the sandwich spread-coated circles.
- Using a finger, poke two small indentations on top of each sandwich. Push one raisin into each indentation to make the eyes.
- Draw a spider web with the permanent black marker on the edges of a paper plate.
Place one spider on each plate and serve for a silly lunch!
