Since it is now October it is time to get out all those fall and Halloween books!  We have really been enjoying reading those favorites that get put away the rest of the year.  This week Will picked out a book about spiders to go along with our spider web treat project.  We read “I Can Read About Spiders” by Deborah Merrians.  This is a nonfiction book with many good facts and illustrations.  We learned a lot about spiders, how they differ from insects and their webs.

 

I Can Read About Spiders

 

I came across this spider web treat in an e-mail I got with several Halloween ideas in it.  The e-mail linked to Delia Creates.  It was a fun project to do together and was fairly quick and easy.

It is also a pretty tasty salty and sweet snack!!!!

First, arrange the pretzel sticks in a circle shape.  Make sure the middle is close and tight to help it stay together in the end.

Next, I melted the candy melts in the microwave according to the directions on the package.  I poured the melted candy into a snack size ziplock bag.  I cut a small piece off the corner of the ziplock bag to create the web spiral on top of the pretzels.  Squeeze the melted candy out from the bag in a spiral shape around the pretzel sticks.  Let the candy harden and enjoy!  Be careful since I found these spider webs to be quite fragile.
