Looking for a fun and super simple spider craft you can make with kids? Want to serve some “spooky” eggs for a Halloween treat? Or just looking for a fun snack to munch on that will give kids a giggle?
Look no further than these spider web eggs you can make with some very simple ingredients!
To make spider web eggs, you will need a few materials:
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- Metal spoon
Put eggs in a single layer into a saucepan. Add enough water to cover the eggs. Then add the frozen blueberries.
Turn on the heat and bring the water to a boil. As soon as the water begins to boil, remove the saucepan from the heat. Wait 10 minutes.
Carefully remove eggs from the saucepan using a slotted spoon or tongs. (The water will still be hot, so this step must be done carefully by an adult.)
Keep the blueberry water in the saucepan.
Set eggs down, and use the back of a metal spoon to gently crack the shell of each egg.
Return eggs to the blueberry water. Wait 1 hour or until the water has completely cooled down.
Remove eggs from the saucepan.
(At this point you can empty the blueberry water from the saucepan.)
Gently peel the eggs to reveal the spider web patterns underneath the shell.
You will notice dark lines where the shell was cracked.
And because of the unique way that the shell tends to crack when hit by a hard object, the lines will resemble a spider web.
These eggs are safe to eat, so feel free to serve them up for a spider-y snack!
