Healthy Halloween spider snacks are a quick + easy string cheese snack for kids!


  • 1 string cheese
  • 1 (1-inch) slice of bread
  • 2 black beans
  • Yogurt, for tiny dots
  • Marinara sauce, for serving (optional, homemade or store-bought)


  1. Using a knife, cut each end of the string cheese into fourths (to make 8 total legs for your spider), leaving about a 1-inch section that’s not cut in the middle of the string cheese to hold it together.
  2. Wrap the bread slice around the middle section.
  3. Make small indents in the bread where you want the eyes to go and push black beans in gently. (You can use some yogurt as glue to help them stick.)
  4. Use a toothpick to add a small dot of yogurt to each black bean to make the whites of the spider’s eyes.
  5. Serve spiders alone or with warmed marinara sauce for dipping as a pizza-like snack.
