And why not have a little fun making a snack the little ones will belly-laugh the whole while making it?

Step 2: Cut your eggs in half lengthwise, and gently scoop out the yolks. Use fork or spoon to mash the yolks up. Stir in Dijon mustard, salt and fresh ground pepper.

Step 4: Place each half of your olives on the center of an egg yolk for the spider’s “body”. Gather another 12 olives, split in half and thinly slice to make the spider’s “legs.” Four on each side for accuracy.
