I love Halloween because it is such a fun time of year, and I also enjoy the crafts and decorations that come along with it.
My kids enjoy it as well, and this year we made Egg Carton Spiders!
If you would like to recreate this project, you will need the following:
– Egg Carton
– Wiggle Eyes
– Pipe Cleaners AKA Fuzzy Sticks
– Black Permanent Marker
(You can find these supplies at a local craft or dollar store)
How To Make Egg Carton Spiders:
In advance cut out a 2 section part and color it with a black permanent marker.
Tip: The smell of the marker can be a little strong, so it is best for an adult to do this.
Next take 2 black fuzzy sticks and cut them into 10 parts. 8 should be 3 inches long and 2 should be 1 inch long.
Give the parts along with Wiggle eyes to your child. They should take the 8 “legs” and insert 4 of them into each side of the body. The remaining 2 are put as the mouth on the front.
The legs and mouth should then be bent. Finally add the eyes onto the face with glue.
These are ready to be displayed immediately, and once the eyes are dried your kids will have fun playing and pretending that the spiders are real.
Have you made similar spider before? What kinds of crafts have you made with an egg carton?
If you decide to make this with your family as well, Enjoy!
