Looking for a fun, easy Halloween craft you can do with your kids that won’t take a lot of prep time? How about these cute mini donut spiders? They’re easy to put together – even my three year old was able to make one – and they don’t take too many supplies. Plus they’re pretty tasty. As evidenced by the fact that mine immediately started “mysteriously” disappearing.
All you need are large pretzel twists, mini donuts, M&Ms, and a little frosting or chocolate (I always have chocolate chips on hand, so that’s what I used).
1 – Use a sharp knife to cut the two curved sides off a pretzel. 2 – Carefully push 8 pretzels curves into the top of a mini donut to form legs. Press slowly so you don’t snap the pretzels. 3 – Melt a little chocolate in a sandwich bag or place a bit of frosting in a sandwich bag. Clip off a tiny corner and pipe some chocolate/frosting onto the mini donut, and use it to stick two M&Ms on for eyes.
Easy, cute, fun Halloween treats the kids will love!
