I remember the tricky things I used to do with creepy crawlers.

My favorite set of molds were the Eeeeks, and my favorite goop color was Transparent. One of the Eeeeks was the "spooky slitherer." It had long and skinny legs.

[1] Make a couple of legs in vibrant colors
[2] Lay the legs in the body of an Eeeks mold
[3] Fill with transparent goop and bake
[4] Your Eeeks body will be transparent with vibrantly colored internal organs. Just the thing to gross-out your little sister

One of the Eeeks arms had tiny crab-like pincers on the ends.

[1] Fill the pincer arm half-way with goop and bake
[2] cut a tiny piece of wire, bend in a 'V' shape, and place in the pincer
[3] Fill the pincer arm to the brim and bake
[4] Now you have a pincers that can be closed and opened

I also had the bright idea of using these pincer arms on a Mini-Dragon. I see on eBay that others have had the same idea. I generally force-fit the arms into the same upper hole used for the chest plate. The eBay person cuts new holes with a bit of brass tubing (actually an emptied ink cartridge).

What are your Thingmaker tricks?
