Weekend Fun: Trick? Or treat?
There are wolf spiders and house spiders and itsy bitsy spiders – not everyone thinks spiders are scary. Do you?
Have some Halloween Fun on a rainy Saturday by making this spooky spider. Make more than one and have them trick-or-treat around your house so you can practice for the big day on October 31. And remember that the Library is open and has plenty of spooky stories to put you in the mood!
Make a Spooky Spider
What you need:
- 2 black circles
- Round object to trace
- 8 paper strips (approx. 1/2-inch wide by 6 inches long)
- Glue stick
- Crayon for tracing
- Eyes (googly eyes or make your own paper eyes)
What you do:
- Trace 2 circles on the black paper.
- Cut out the circles.
- Apply glue to each end of a paper strip and stick the ends together.
- Repeat until you have 8 loops.
- Apply glue to 1 black circle – use lots of glue!
- Arrange the paper loops around the circle for the spider’s legs.
- Apply glue to the other black circle and press it on top of the first one.
- Use googly eyes, if you have them, or cut out two white circles and draw black dots inside each one.
- Use lots of glue on the black circle where the eyes will go, and stick them on.
- Boo! Trick or treat?
