This week is Bug Camp. I am not really involved with it, but I thought I would look for some fun things to do concerning bugs. I found some really neat ideas in the Preschool Almanac put out by Scholastic.
The first couple are food items. Today I thought I would share the spider creations with you.
You will need:
Round crackers (like Ritz's)
spreadable cream cheese or peanut butter (or both)
spreading knife or spoon
This is a simple project, but they turned out so cute.
Take a cracker and spread either cream cheese or peanut butter on it--whatever you fancy. Now get 8 pretzel sticks and press them into the cream cheese or peanut butter, arranging them like legs. Finally, take two raisins and use them for eyes. (Dont' look too closely, you will see I was out of raisins)
The final step is to enjoy. These are so easy to make you could make a bunch of them in no time!
