These little cupcakes are almost too sweet to eat! Let the kids help you assemble the charmers and you can teach a science lesson, too—what a great way to teach that all spiders have eight legs! —Sara Martin, Brookfield, Wisconsin

  • M&M's minis
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • Pastry tip—round tip #7
