Make a Sweet Spurting Spider

Question: Where do spiders go to learn new words?
Answer: Web-ster's Dictionary.

This spider may not have a great vocabulary, but it sure can spurt! This activity involves the oven, adult assistance is needed.

You'll need these materials::

  • 1 box flesh (basic cake mix)
  • 1 box innards (green JELL-O, prepared, set, and well whipped)
  • 1 batch skin (black frosting: buy at a craft supply store or make by adding blue food coloring to chocolate frosting)
  • 8 legs (black licorice sticks or whips)
  • 2 or 6 eyes (large green gumdrops)
What to do:
  1. Mix the cake batter according to the instructions on the box.
  2. Bake the cake in two metal bowls. One of these bowls needs to be bigger than the other.
  3. Once you've taken it out of the pan, cut the bigger cake in half, horizontally. This will be the spider's body.
  4. Carefully scoop out a hole in each half of the cake. Fill this hole with well-whipped, set green JELL-O, and reattach the halves.
  5. Cover the cake with the black frosting.
  6. Put the cake onto a big plate, and add the licorice legs and gumdrop eyes.
  7. When you cut into the cake, it will ooze green guts -- just like a real spider!
