Looking for a Halloween craft activity? Here is something I did with my 4 year old – we got our craft box out and made these spooky spiders for Halloween. All the materials are easily available at any craft store and I helped him do the gluing tasks.
Materials you will need:
Paper plates – 2
Pipe cleaners – 6/8
Popsicle stick – 1
Step 1: Paint the back of one of the paper plates any solid color (we did black and red). Make sure to apply at least 2-3 coats of paint.
Step 2 : While it dries, start sticking the pipe cleaners on the inside rim of the other plate. Bend the pipe cleaners & position them 3 or 4 on each side (as shown).
Step 3 : Stick a popsicle stick on the top of the inside rim of the same plate.
Step 4 : Apply glue around the entire circumference of any one plate and stick the two together. The insides of the plates should be joined together now.
Step 5 : Make eyes and mouth using Eye stickers, pipe cleaners, paints or markers.
Your spooky halloween spider is all set!
