Hot glue your spider stickers to the top of the container for a better hold. Print and cut out your countdown numbers. Using a glue stick, glue the numbers to the mini containers, starting at the top of the first section and then, unscrewing each and gluing to the bottom of the same section, then the bottom of the next section…etc. This is a perfect time to get the kids involved again!
This is a perfectly fun Halloween project to do with kids! Let them fill the mini specimen containers with bugs (gummy candies) and spider eggs (jelly beans)!

And, if you’re looking for a great way to put bugs on the menu at your place, I’ve heard that chocolate-covered ants aren’t too shabby. MMMmmmmmmmm….dessert. 🙂
