For this spooktacular craft, you just need a few materials and your child's imagination.
- black paper plate
- hole punch
- yarn (as many colors as you would like)
- a paper spider
1. Adults should use the hole punch to make about 8 holes around the edge of the paper plate.
2. Pull a piece of yarn through one hole and tie a knot. Have your child weave the yarn through the holes, criss-crossing the plate in whatever pattern they choose, to create a spider web. Your child can use one or many colors.
3. When finished threading the yarn through the plate, tie an end knot and cut any excess yarn.
4. Allow your child to decorate the plate with any spooky Halloween or other stickers they choose.
5. Print out a spider. We chose the spider from Eric Carle's The Very Busy Spider. Cut it out and punch a hole in the top. Take a piece of yarn to tie the spider to your plate.
