So pumpkin soup with spiderwebs is perfect...and funny for the kindergarteners. We make pumpkin soup because it goes along with this cute book called Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper about three friends who have to find a way to work together and solve their problems to make pumpkin soup. The teacher read the kids the book while I called them to the back of the room, a few at a time, to do a job helping to make the soup. Then the soup cooks in the crock pot in the room and I came back a few hours later to serve it up for their snack. I also brought bread sticks for each child to shape their own bread stick to go with the soup.
They're also super easy to make.
There are lots of pumpkin soup recipes out there. This is the one I use. This would also work great with tomato soup (which my kids like better.)
You start by putting sour cream mixed with a little bit of milk in a condiment bottle.
Make a swirl.
Drag a toothpick through it.
And you're done...
Except you still need to add the spider.
But if it's sugar you want, this also works with pudding and cool whip.
And if you're planning on doing this with a class of kindergarteners, you might want to have them make bread sticks too. Kindergarteners are not known for trying a lot of new foods, so this way they have something to eat if they don't like their soup.
And if you like that hot pad under the soup...it's for sale here...and I even reduced the price.
Please show my sponsors some love...
