Practice Spreading

Choose one of the following kids recipes:

Round crackers
Cream cheese or cheese spread
Pretzel sticks
Allow your child to create these spiders. Spread cheese on top of one cracker. Add pretzel sticks on top of cheese for legs. Put another cracker on top, (you may need to add more cheese.) Add a dab of cheese on top of cracker and attach raisins for eyes. You can also substitute peanut butter for the cream cheese, if desired.
