  1. When you stick the spaghetti all the way through the sausage pieces, you get little spiders.

  2. Thanks Diana! Cute idea.

  3. I was so wondering how to do this before I clicked through to read the whole post. Not at all what I was thinking…definitely easier! This is supercute.

  4. I am thinking meat balls which not all kids like, but would compliment the spagetti/marinara better to me. Octopus maybe. This is a great idea and I cannot wait to try it with my 7 year old. Thx.
