Your little ones will love these tasty ‘spiders’

I f you feel you can't wait until the 2012 version of the Rockdale Fair begins, relax—it's already started!

The Fair queen pageant and also the children's pageant were Saturday and you can see the results and pictures of all eleven of the Fair queen beauties on this page and elsewhere in this week's Reporter.

Congratulations to all, including pageant director Neva Caffey who’s had this job for 35 years and still counting!

The children’s pageant winners are also pictured on page 6B and editor Mike Brown has written a complete rundown of activities for this weekend beginning on our front page. It tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the Rockdale Fair.

You won't have time to make these this week, what with going to the Fair and all, but it will be Halloween before we know it.

Grandson Augie, secondgrader at St. Paul Lutheran in Thorndale, and I have already made lots of these “scary” spiders. Here’s how:

Take two Ritz crackers and put a largish blob of peanut butter on one. Take 8 pretzel sticks and lay them in the peanut butter to make the spider's legs. You can use long sticks for a Daddy Long Legs or break them in half for a regular spider.

Put another smaller blob (it's very difficult for second-graders to make a small blob) of peanut butter on top of the sticks and put the other cracker on top.

For eyes, you can use M&Ms or other candies, chocolate chips, or whatever you and your "buddy" can think of. Augie even used some candy corn to make some "fangs" for an even scarier spider so your little one’s imagination will help with the production.

Most of all, have fun!
