The Best Spiderweb/Halloween Craft For Kids
The Itsy Bitsy Spider Crawled Up The Waterspout
Recommended for ages 3+
This craft comes in handy if your child is learning about spiders and spiderwebs. It is also a great decoration for Halloween.
Materials You Will Need:
2 paper plates
1 piece of colorful construction paper
Small plastic spiders
Step 1- Cut a medium size hole out of the center of one plate. Your child may need help.
Step 2- Using the hole puncher, make about 10 holes around the hole you previously cut out.
Step 3- Lace the yarn through the holes. If your child is having difficulty threading the yarn through the hole, place tape on one end of the string and it will make it easier. Tape the ends to the inside of the plate.
Step 4- Cut a circle out of the colorful construction paper. Glue the circle to the bottom of the second plate.
Step 5- Place the plate with the web over the plate with the colorful circle glued on the bottom. Keeping the plate still, use the clear tape to attach the two plates together.
Step 6- Use the Elmer's glue to attach the spiders around the paper plate. Keep in mind, more glue can make the spiders slide off the plate, especially if your child wants to glue the spiders on the round surface of the plate. Tacky glue or a hot glue-gun would work as well, but will require more adult supervision.
Step 7- Wait for the glue to dry. Punch a hole through the top of both plates. Thread a short piece of yarn through the hole and tie the ends in a knot. Use this small loop to hang your spiderweb inside or outside your house. Makes a great decoration!
