SPIDER Magazine gets cookin’ and has fun with food! Pizza, pretzels, cake, cookies, brownies, bread… you’ll satisfy your appetite for learning with recipes, articles, activities, poems, and stories all about food.


But SPIDER Magazine goes beyond just cooking and eating. Did you know you can make a necklace out of bread? Or if you just want to eat bread, there’s an amazing recipe for soda bread that you can cook yourself! Learn about the history of pretzels and read a very special story about a very special cake. And if you’re hungry for more, there is a Brown E game and a particular pizza activity.
