We've got two new pets in our house...thankfully they're the kind that don't require food, water, or supervision of any sort. We made spiders!
I punched holes around the edges of paper plates and the kids made yarn web homes for their spiders.
Next, we cut spider bodies from an egg carton and painted them in the colors of our choosing.
After the bodies were dry, we added pipe-cleaner legs and plenty of scary googly eyes.
