Fun Oat Web – Halloween

Oat Web

Now spiders may not be everyone’s cup of tea but this is a fun, cute strawberry one that would be delicious for breakfast.

The web looks time consuming but actually it’s not hard to put together and surprisingly quick.

Fun food for children Halloween


– Oats – I used wholegrain and soaked them in milk so they were softened

– Strawberry cut in half for the spider’s body (any fruit would be OK)

– Raisins for the spiders legs (or small blueberries)

– Blueberry cut in half for the eyes (or raisins/dates)

– I used yoghurt for detail


1. Make a rough circle from the oats in the middle and then make 6 diagonal lines. I used a teaspoon and fingers to guide the oats.

Oat Spiderweb - 1 6 threads (1 of 1)


2. Then make an inner ring from more oats.

Oat Spiderweb - 2 first ring (1 of 1)


3. And then a second.

Oat Spiderweb - 3 second ring (1 of 1)


4. And a third.

Oat Spiderweb - 4 third ring (1 of 1)


5. Now it’s time to add the spider (or not!!)

Oat Spiderweb - 5 spider body (1 of 1)


I used a strawberry cut in half.

6. And then added half a blueberry for each eye and cut raisins in half for the legs.

Oat Spiderweb - 6 legs (1 of 1)


I also gave him some chelicera (the sticking out bits at the front!!)

7. Then used yoghurt to make detail for the eyes and on the back.

Oat Spiderweb - 7 eyes (1 of 1)

8. And there is my Halloween spider web all ready to eat.
