Supplies Needed

Empty egg Cartons
Black acrylic paint
Wiggle eyes
Black pipe cleaners


1. Cut the cups off an empty egg carton.
Paint these black with the acrylic paint.
2. Use a paper clip end or a pushpin to
poke four holes along the bottom edge
on one side of the cup. Poke matching
holes on the opposite side of the cup.
3. To make fuzzy legs, cut four black pipe
cleaners into 7-inch lengths. Thread a
pipe cleaner through one of the holes,
into the cup, and out the corresponding
hole on the other side. Make sure the
ends protrude an equal length from both
sides of the cup and bend them upward
at the base of the spider's body. Fold in
the opposite direction midway down the
legs to create the knees and bend the
pipe cleaners to make feet.
4. Finally, glue on wiggle eyes.



 Black poster board, clothespin, red or yellow construction paper, hole punch, and


Cut a bat shape from the black poster board. Punch a dot from the construction
paper and glue to the bat for eyes. Glue the bat to the clothespin. Hang on a curtain.
