Little Miss Muffet Spider Craft

Here's a very simple spider craft using a paper plate. We made a spider craft after teaching the nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet. We used it for a role play, kids taking turns being Miss Muffet or the spider. They loved it. This is Great for Halloween, too.


  • 1 paper plate
  • black paint
  • 8 thin strips of black paper for legs
  • push pin and sharp pencil
  • string or pipe cleaner
  • google eyes
  • glue


  1. Paint the paper plate black on both sides and allow to dry.
  2. Cut out 8 thin strips of black paper for legs and glue to the top side of the paper plate.
  3. Take a push pin and make a hole in the center of the paper plate and make it bigger with a sharp pencil.
  4. Thread a piece of string through the hole and tie a knot so it hangs upside down.
  5. Glue 2 google eyes to the plate for eyes.


Instead of paper legs, take a hole punch and make 8 holes and tie yarn or pipe cleaners for legs. Also, your spider doesn't have to be black, how about orange, purple or let kids decorate with stripes.
