we’d love to see it! Just send your photos and comments to the editor and it may get published on our Facebook fan page ! Cut eight long strips of black paper and a circle for the spider’s head. Glue the two small paper plates together, top to top, with the legs and head placed between them. Paint the body black and glue a long piece of string to the middle of the back so the spider can dangle from the ceiling.


You will need:

Black and orange construction paper glue scissors Cut eight strips of black paper 1 1/2″ x 9″ 2. Cut one strip of black paper 2″ x 22″ (you could substitute two 11″ pieces glued together).

Using the picture as a guide, cut the following:

2 Large black circles 2 Medium orange circles 2 Small black circles Glue orange circle to edge of large black circle. Glue small black circle to edge of orange circle. Measure the 22″ piece around child’s head, overlap and glue ends together. Glue the eyes to the hat band with black eyes touching as shown. Fold the leg strips in half. Fold one end of each leg strip back 1″. Glue the straight end to the inside edge of the hat band. Fold and glue the remaining legs. You will have four legs on each side of your hat as shown.
