Paper Plate Spider

As I mentioned below...Kaden had a friend come over after school. I needed a quick and easy craft to do with 2 five year olds & a three year old. This was PERFECT!! There are a few different variations on the internet. I wasn't as organized with my pictures as usual, but you get the idea.

You will need:

paper plates (one per spider)
eight strips of paper (cut your paper length wise)
large google eyes (2 per spider)
string (if you want to hang it up)
glue
crayons & markers

Turn your plate upside down & color the top.



Accordion fold the strips of paper & glue to the underside of the plate. (The side that you didn't color.)



Glue on your google eyes onto the colored side of your plate. I poked a hole in the middle of the plate & strung a string through it. The boys wanted to hang it from their beds.
