I was looking for October/Halloween crafts for the kids. I found a really fun pumpkin craft and one hysterical (and simple) skeleton.
I also found a “spider snack.” The idea is to read the Eric Carle book “The Very Busy Spider,” and then let the children make a spider-shaped snack. The author of this idea said it was a very cute book and a great way to teach children about nutrition. WHA?
The snack is a giant marshmallow with eight pretzel stick legs and covered with chocolate syrup.
Please do not teach children about nutrition using any of the previously mentioned items. I’m totally jiggy with the fun snack idea that follows the book. But let us not pretend that we are going to learn anything valuable about nutrition with a marshmallow involved. I’m just saying.
