Dangling Spiders – What you need
Small white paper plates

A hole punch
Coloured craft Pipe cleaners
Dangling Spiders - What to do
First paint the undersides of your paper plates – you need 2 to make one spider.
Take 4 pipe cleaners and cut them in half to make 8 legs
Once the plates are dry, staple your legs in place, sandwiching them between the two plates.
Glue your googly eyes into place – did you know most spiders have 8 eyes but they actually can’t see very well!!!
Make a single hole at the top of the spider with your hole punch and hang up with string.
