Children first painted a white paper plate black and gave it a little glitz by sprinkling glitter onto the wet paint.
Once the plates were dry children cut slits around the edge of the paper plate. Next they wrap yarn around the paper plate and trough each slit. When finished they attached the end of the yard to the back of the plate with tape.
Children then went to the spider making station where they created a spider out of apple carton circles. Children colored the top of the apple carton black, purple, or blue and punched four holes around the edge with a hole punch. The last step was for them to thread the pipe cleaner through the holes and twist for the legs and also glue on eyes.
