    I accidentally fed my Webkinz fish “fish and chips”! And… he liked it! Maybe they should take out foods that involve meat that is a webkinz, because he ate his own kind.
    P.S. I don’t like the bug that much.

        Hey, Scottiedog101! You can make this craft by using an egg carton! Just cut off one of the bulged parts (the part where the egg sits in) off of the bottom. Then, paint it any color you would like. Use a hole punch to make 6 or 8 legs. Then, cut a pipe cleaner and stick it into the holes. Add googly eyes and enjoy :) ! ~TC1
