Cute lunches: Spider crackers

Cute lunches: Spider crackers

I came across these super cute spider snacks on Pinterest and knew they’d be great for Nicholas’ Spider-Man birthday party. They went down very well, even with the adults! Nicholas now asks for them regularly and they’re an easy snack to prepare.

Ritz spider crackers

Sorry for the very blurry photo, but…

For each spider you’ll need two round crackers (I used Ritz crackers). Using an edible ink pen, draw eyes and a mouth on the top of one cracker (you can also use raisins or sultanas for eyes stuck in place with soft cheese or even mayonnaise). Spread some soft cheese on the other cracker and press in the spider’s legs (I used Twiglets broken in half, but you could also use pretzel sticks or thin bread sticks). Spread a little bit of soft cheese on the top crack and position it on top.

someone couldn’t wait to eat his spiders!

Can you think of any other animals you could make out of crackers?

Cute Lunches: Incy Wincy Spider

Nicholas is spider-crazy, whether it’s singing Incy Wincy Spider or arguing with his friends which one of them is Spider-Man! A spider-themed lunch is definitely his most requested.

bento fun foodI used an edible ink pen to draw a spider outline on a tortilla and cut it out with kitchen scissors. I then used this as a template to cut out another. The tortilla is filled with mashed boiled egg and shredded spinach.

I added two raisins for eyes and cut thin strips from a couple of spinach leaves to make Incy’s web.

Incy Jr. is a black grape cut in half, slicing one half very thinly for the legs. You could also use a black olive as I did here.
