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