Spider Biscuits


We had great fun making these spider biscuits and, as they are really just a question of adding decorations to existing biscuits, it's a quick activity to put together. They would make a perfect Halloween activity and tea-time treat, but of course are fun for any time of year (or a minibeast project!)

Spider Biscuits

You will need:

  • A round biscuit (we used Tea biscuits and Oreo’s)
  • Small round chocolate circles (such as M&M’s and Smarties)
  • Icing (we used vanilla icing)
  • Some candy laces or licorice for the legs
  • Scissors to cut the laces

Instructions for the tea biscuit spiders

  1. Add a layer of icing to the top of your biscuit. You will attach everything to the icing.
  2. Add two of the chocolate sweets for the spider’s eyes
  3. Cut the laces or licorice into eight smaller sections for the spider's legs. Attach the legs to the side of the biscuit.
  4. If you like you could also use a small section of lace to create a mouth.

Instructions for the oreo biscuit spiders

  1. Open the oreo biscuit up so you have the icing on one side.
  2. Cut the laces or licorice into eight sections for the spider's legs.
  3. Attach the legs on the inside of the oreo biscuit. If they are not sticking well you can always add a dab of your own icing.
  4. Reattach the other half of the biscuit.
  5. Using a dab of icing, attach two of the chocolate sweeets to the top of the biscuit so that your spider has eyes.
  6. If you want you could also use a small section of lacesto create a mouth. Attach it to the biscuit with a small dab of icing.
