Directions: Isn’t that spider cute?! Pick out a pom pom ball that you want as your spider’s body, and thread a pipe cleaner through the middle of it. Fold each side of the pipe cleaner up to form 3 legs on each side. Use your Elmer’s glue stick to attach the googly eyes onto the pom pom ball. Now your spider is done. Next cut 1/2 inch slits around the edges of the plate- randomly. It should NOT be symetrical. Take your string and form a web on the plate by pulling the string through the slits on the side in any random order you wish. (see picture above) Use your Elmer’s glue stick to attach the spider in the web plate!
Not to be a downer, but spiders ALWAYS ALWAYS have 8 legs. You need to amend your project to show an additional set of legs! I use that as a math problem for my kindergarten class and to teach them the difference between spiders and insects. Higher level thinking! Love your site.
LOL Yes you are very correct! I ran out of pipe cleaners so he became a partially mutated spider 🙂
