1)Make grape caterpillar by skewing grapes to the wooden skewer and using carrot slivers to make antennae.

2)The famous ants on the logs would be a good choice. Spread peanut butter on celery sticks and top it off with raisins to resemble as if there are ants on the logs.

3)Sandwich 8 small sized pretzel sticks between two round shaped cracker and use peanut butter to glue them. To create eyes, use peanut butter at the top of the cracker sandwich and glue raisins on it. When done, it will look like a spider.

4)Pizza slices with olive and mushroom toppings. Place the toppings to create insect shapes.
Hope you like these ideas. Here is a helpful link on insect party ideas. Hope it helps you.

i used to make little flower pots with gummy worms. get the little flower pots for like 50 cents or a little paper cup. mix chocolate pudding, cool whip, and crushed oreos together. put in cup and add gummy worms. the kids love to think they are eating dirt and worms.

"Ants" on a log? :) You could make sandwiches and cut them into "bug" shapes? Maybe you can find some cookie cutters shaped like bugs? Make mini frosted cupcakes and sprinkle the tops with crushed chocolate cookies for "dirt" and put little fondant bugs on top. You can find fondant in the decorating isle in the grocery store.
