Cut four tiny triangles along the sides of the TP roll, directly across from the cuts on the opposite side for the spider's legs. Cut two black pipecleaners in half. Thread the pipecleaners through the holes. Add googly eyes.
- Large Paper Plate Spider - Cut a large paper plate in half and paint black. Cut eight legs out of construction paper and glue to the outside perimeter of the plate. Add eyes and a smile. (Thank you to Mrs. C for this idea.)
- Small Paper Plate Spider - Paint a small paper plate black. Poke a hole in the center and knot a piece of string through (optional - this allows the child to carry the spider) . Cut eight thin strips of construction paper and glue to the perimeter of the plate. Add eyes.
