Now that you've made your crackers and hummus, it's time to assemble the spiders.

Young Readers in the Kitchen

Kids can spread hummus on the crackers, then assemble the legs and eyes on the plate.  

 

For each spider you need:

  1. Spread 1 of the large and 1 of the small crackers thickly with the hummus.
