If you love to make fun treats in the kitchen with your kids and now thinking what to make for Halloween, then you definitely need to try this awesome easy sandwich cookie spider craft!
To make a batch of sandwich cookie spiders, you will need following:
*Halloween sandwich cookies
*Marshmallows (Tip: Day-old marshmallows work best for this project)
To begin, break four pretzel sticks in half to form eight individual pieces.
Insert four of the pretzel pieces on either side of one of the cookies, directly into the cream layer.
Break off just the white bottom portion of two pieces of candy corn.
nsert the white candy corn tips into the front portion of the cookie, between the two sets of legs to form silly spider fangs.
For the eyes, use a finger to press two of the marshmallows flat. (Day-old marshmallows work best for this, as they tend to hold their flattened shape more easily.)
Affix the marshmallow eyes just over the fangs on the front side of the spider using a dab of black frosting on the back of each. Add a dab of black frosting to the center of each marshmallow to make pupils for each eye.
Continue making spiders in this fashion until you have as many as desired. (If you’re anything like my kids and me, once you get started, you’ll want to make a whole passel!)
I love that these are easy enough for even toddlers to lend a hand in making, but they are a fun project for kids up through elementary school, too.
I think they would be great to make together at a class party.
