|Let me out!|
One of the many wonderful things about Spider Ice Cubes is that they turn any drink into a festive Halloween cocktail. So, say an individual at your Halloween Party is allergic to O.J., one of the key ingredients in your signature Witches Brew. Simply pop a few Spider Cubes into a glass of allergy-safe apple juice (or even water) and voila! Instant festivity.
Spider Cubes require three ingredients: plastic spiders, an ice cube tray and water. They take about five minutes to make (plus freezing time) and kids think they're super fun.
I like to use spider rings - plastic spiders attached to rings - because then kids wear them on their fingers rather than suck on them once the cubes are melted. A helpful disclaimer would be that these are not for kids under 4, but even older kids need to be reminded to take the spiders out of their mouths, what can I say. Also, unless you have an ice-chewer, it takes quite a while to get down to the spider.
This is a great craft (or recipe, you decide) for kids because the only messy thing is the water.
