Subject: Halloween Craft
Grade: K-2
Age: 4-8

Submitted by: P. Coniglio, a teacher at Delaware Valley Elementary in Milford PA


  • Halloween fun!

What You Need:

  • one 1" foam ball
  • 3" x 3" black tissue paper
  • eight pieces of black pipecleaner four inches long
  • glue
  • scissors
  • holepunch
  • small colorful piece of scrap paper
  • piece of cardboard about 5" x 6"
  • yarn

What You Do:

  1. I usually begin this as a science lesson about spiders and I read a book about spiders.

  2. The children are fascinated by how spiders spin their webs, capture and eat their food and spider trivia such as the amount of eyes some spiders have captures their interest.

  3. We first make a web by cutting slits around the edge of the piece of cardboard. Then we wrap the cardboard with yarn.

  4. Next spread some glue on the tissue paper and place the foam ball in the center.

  5. Wrap the tissue around the ball.

  6. Poke the pipecleaners into the ball so they resemble legs, four on each side.

  7. Use the hole punch to punch as many eyes as you want from the scrap paper, glue these on top of the spiders body.

  8. Bend the legs down and attach the spider to the cardboard and yarn web.

  9. YIKES!! Its a teensy weensy scary spider.
