Creepy and crawly but deliciously cute, these fruit spiders are so fun, your little ones will beg for this healthy kid snack for Halloween. They’re fast and affordable to make, and so easy that your kids can help you make them.

(This healthy kid snack for Halloween was originally posted in October of 2013, but we’re updating it because this year Corban is helping to make them!)

I’m thinking of making some for Mops this week, even though I’m not scheduled to bring any food. I just think it would be fun to get people freaking out that there are spiders on the brunch table!

This kids snack is almost as easy as my ghostly boonanas, but a little spookier, perfect for the little boy or brave little girl in your life. The legs of the spiders are simply raisins threaded onto uncooked spaghetti sticks, which are then poked into a grape.

A couple tips for making these successfully:

  1. Make sure to use dark black grapes rather than the purple grapes. Grapes that are a little more oval than round are easier to get all eight legs into.
  2. Serve your spiders within an hour of making them, any longer and the spaghetti will start to get soggy.

Corban thought these spiders were pretty amazing, even though he’s not quite old enough to eat them yet. I have a feeling he will love these next Halloween. Does your little one have a favorite Halloween snack?

  • Hey there! I love these and want to make them for my son’s Halloween party, but I plan to assemble them the night before, is there an alternative to the noodles for the legs?

    • Great question Corrina. I used spaghetti so it would all be edible, but I think you could definitely use toothpicks if the kids are old enough to know not to hurt themselves. Have fun! I’d love to hear how they go and see a photo!

  • Tips if you’re in a hurry! If the kids are old enough, definitely use toothpicks instead of the spaghetti. The spaghetti will drive you crazy breaking!! Also, if you spear the raisins sideways, instead of top to bottom, it goes MUCH faster and still looks great!
