Spider Craft Made with Paper Plate
- Paper plate
- Black paint
- Black pipe cleaners
- Red googly eyes (you can find a variety mix here)
How to Make the Paper Plate Spider:
Start off by painting the paper plate black and allow it to dry completely. You only have to paint one side since we will be folding it. We chose to paint the bottom so that it poofed out a little more once we folded it.
Once it has completely dried, fold the plate in half.
Twist four black pipe cleaners together in the middle, then spread the ends apart to create legs.
Glue the center of the leg bundle inside the fold of the paper plate.
Bend the pipe cleaners to create zig-zags. Now that we have the legs and body made for the spider, we need to attach the eyes.
Glue several red googly eyes to the front of the spider.
To make the spider rock:
Make the Paper Plate Spider Craft for Kids. Set the spider upright on the ends of the paper plate. Push down one side of the plate with your finger to make the spider rock.
