In the spirit of Halloween and all things spooky, we did this fun spider craft. I originally saw this on Paper Crafts and immediately put it on our to-do list.Here’s what you need:
– Empty toilet paper roll
– Glue & staples (optional)
– Paint & Accessories
– Wiggly Eyes (optional – you can paint eyes on!)
– A piece of construction paper & scissors to cut it
Smush the toilet paper roll flat. You can staple it closed as PH suggested, or you can just put glue inside and sit something heavy on top for a while. I did that part last night before bed so that it would be dry in the morning.
Next, trace your child’s hand onto the construction paper. Cut them out. You don’t need the thumb. I kept it on so Lore could paint the constructio npaper (again, optional) and then cut the thumbs off before I glued the fingers to the spider.
So yep, just paint anything you want painted and let dry. Then glue on the hands and eyes. So easy!
Love that cheesin pic! Great Ideas and I know she had a ton of fun doing them? Found your paints??
Thanks and yep! They were in the box that I shipped, not packed in the suitcases. 🙂
Love it! I’m so copying this craft later!

I love your take on this craft:-). Looks like you had heaps of fun making it – we loved it too and had to make a couple of versions. Now I want to make a purple one too!
Thanks for sharing,
