Simple spider crafts for kids

You will need a toilet rolls or cardboard rolls painted black, wiggly eyes, glue and pipe cleaners.

Our spiders were inspired by One Hungry Spider by Jeannie Baker.  This book is a great introduction or motivator for this activity.

Let’s Create 

Before painting the toilet rolls I punched four holes on both sides ready for the pipe cleaners to thread later.

When the cardboard rolls are dry, push and pull the pipe cleaner legs through the holes and bend at the ends to create the shape of spider’s legs.
