So Festive For Kids Logomeatball-spiders

Today I’m here to share a fun idea for a festive Halloween dinner.  What kid doesn’t love spaghetti and meatballs??  I know at my house it’s everyone’s favorite.  So to make it even more fun we turned the meatballs and spaghetti into spiders.  It’s really simple and your kids can help.

You’ll need:


How to:

First, defrost the meatballs so they’re no longer frozen.  Break the spaghetti sticks in half and poke them through the meatball one at a time until you have eight legs.



Once you have a whole plate full, go drop them into a boiling pot of water.  (You may have to cook them in batches because until the spaghetti softens they’re pretty big)  Boil until the spaghetti is cooked and ready to eat.


Plate them up with some other festive food and you’re all set for a fun and festive Halloween dinner your kids are sure to love!
