As Halloween approaches I feel as the girls and I haven’t really had a chance to make many fun fall or Halloween crafts, so we decided this week that we would make some spooky Paper Plate Spider Craft to put on our windows! So that when our neighbors drive by they get a little bit of spookiness and fright!
Paper Plate Spider Craft
Personally we love easy crafts, but at the same time they turn out super cute and they are perfect for displaying around our home!
Materials needed to create your spider craft:
- Paper plate
- Black paint
- Paint brush
- Large googly eyes
- Craft glue
- Black construction paper cut into 8 strips
This craft is super easy to make!
Step One: Have your child paint one side of the paper plate completely black. Allow paint to dry.
Step Two: Glue on googly eyes on your spider. I would have gone with 8 or 12 small googly eyes just for fun, but the girls really wanted two large eyes.
Step Three: To create the crinkly legs cut 8 strips of black construction paper. Then have your child fold the strips forward and then backwards to get the accordion affect on the spiders legs.
I always love adding these to our crafts because it really helps my youngest work on her fine motors skills and hand eye coordination.
These look so cute hanging in our living room windows and I think that our neighbors are really enjoying the girls art work being displayed for all of them to enjoy as well!
