Here's a spider craft making perfect 3-D arachnids by the dozen. Both younger and older children can enjoy this activity.

Materials & Tools

What you need:
Empty egg carton
Black washable paint
Black pipe cleaners
Googly eyes
White craft glue
One paper clip
Scrap newspaper


Directions

1. Cut the egg carton into twelve cups.

2. Paint the cups inside and outside with black paint. Allow to dry thoroughly on a piece of newspaper.

3. Open up on the paper clip and use the end to poke four holes on either side of the cup.

4. Cut four 7-inch lengths of pipe cleaners.

5. Thread the pipe cleaners through one side of the cup and out the other side of the cup. The ends should be equal on each side. Bend them upward at the base of the cup, then downward to creat the appearance of knees and feet.

6. Glue on the googly eyes.
