Since it’s finally fall and Halloween is rolling around, it’s finally time to pull out all the Halloween Yard Decorations, home decorations and get those Halloween party menus planned.

It’s time to get those fun Halloween crafts out for your kiddos or get to making those ones you saved for this time of year.

My kids thoroughly enjoyed making this Frankenstein craft and we had a fun time making quite a few Pumpkins with this craft and plan to have them on our Fall porch decoration display.

But they always ask for Halloween or fall-themed food and we haven’t had much excitement in that department, until now. These are great for everyday lunches and a fun thing to take to Preschool.

These Peanut Butter and Jelly Spider Sandwiches are great for so many reasons:

  • Easy to Make
  • Fun way to Celebrate Halloween
  • Great to make for Halloween parties or fall festivities
  • Kids think they’re getting something special or a treat
  • Doesn’t cost anything more than normal lunch making prices
  • Super cute
