Spider Pal Craft

October is the month when we embrace the spooky and kooky.  I look forward to the fun craft and snack opportunities this time of year provides.  I have a few standby projects stuffed in my back pocket and they have become mini traditions for my family and daycare. 

Yesterday we made bouncy spider pals. 

Spiders that hang and dance add a fun element to our lovely fall decor.  These simple little arachnids were introduced to me over 20 years ago in the third grade.  This is a very tried and true activity.

The children love the crinkly legs and scary smiles so my family has made some variation of this craft over the years.  Today we rolled basic cylinders, but I have seen flat cones used also.  Get creative! 

Here's what you will need:
  • black, brown, or gray construction paper
  • scissors
  • yarn or string
  • googly eyes-  optional
  • white crayon
  • tape or stapler

Here's how you construct these eight legged friends:
  • Cut eight equal strips of paper for the legs.
  • Cut a large rectangle for the body.  You can use whole sheets of paper or cut smaller rectangles for a parcel of different sized foes.
  • Roll or fold the legs to make them "bouncy".  We used pencils to curl the paper or accordion folded the legs.

  • Tape or staple the legs to the inside of your large rectangle.

  • Flip over the rectangle and use a white crayon to draw your spider's mug.  The boys usually opt for fangs!  This is a great time to add the googly eyes or draw them on.

  • Roll the rectangle to make a cylinder and secure it with tape or staples.
  • Attach your string and hang!

What are some fall crafts your family enjoy year after year?
