By popular request, here are the instructions for the spider craft we did for William’s birthday party. These would be great for a Spiderman party or Halloween too.

large wood beads
black pipe cleaners
black paint or a magic marker
googly eyes
tacky glue

1. After having stayed up all night coloring my beads with a pointy little sharpie the night before the party, I would recommend painting them black. Depending on the age of the kids, do this ahead of time.

2. Have the kids pinch one end of four pipe cleaners together and push them through the hole.

3. Separate and shape each “leg”.

4. Glue on eyes.

5. Easy-sneezy! Suspend them from the rafters with white string or stand on the table.  Have fun!
