spider family fun night

my little lady and i have been reading, Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. it's one of my favorite children's books and i wanted to create a family night all around it. i timed it just right with halloween right around the corner and was able to find a few decorations to use. i found spiderweb placemats, spiderwebbing and plastic spiders at the dollar store.

i put the plastic spiders in some ice cube trays, added water and froze them to make some fun ice cubes.

i love their faces when they wake up and see the surprise!  they thought the cobwebs were so spooky!

i made pumpkin pancakes and black cinnamon syrup for breakfast. i found the recipe here.

we made spider hats.

we ate pumpkin chocolate chip whoopie pies for dessert. i make these every fall and they are so good! i even used gluten-free flour and they were just as good! i found it here.
