  • Make the chilled version of the Spiced Apple Cider recipe below and pour in a punch bowl.
  • Pour cider into an ice cube tray and put a small plastic spider in each cube.  When frozen, pop them out and float in the punch bowl.
  • If your spiders are too big for an ice cube tray, freeze them in Styrofoam cups, using enough cider to cover spiders.
  • If available, you can substitute gummy spiders for plastic ones.
  • Do not put the spider ice cubes in drinking cups since it is a potential choking hazard.
  • Print poem here and slip sign into small acrylic frame.  Set sign by punch bowl.

Spider Cider
  2000 by shirleyt@craftsayings.com

The old witch ordered fresh spider cider,
So all of her spiders did abide her.
But some fell in and turned to ice. . .
As the witch cried, "What a touch so nice!"
