This year I am moonlighting as Songbird’s 1st grade class “room parent.” Which basically translates into Holiday-Class-Party-Planner-Extraordinaire. Any excuse to get crafty is a good one in my book.
So today I worked on a sample of the spider hat craft that the kids will be constructing during their Halloween party tomorrow. It was so easy and cute I had to share!
Start by tracing a circle approximately 6.5″ wide onto black paper. Cut out.
Cut 8 legs about 5″ long by 1″ wide.
Have your child glue 4 legs to each side of the circle.
Then flip the spider over for them the decorate the face to suit their fancy. Colorful cut paper is best, since markers or crayons wont’ show up well on the black paper. Google eyes aren’t required, but they’re fun!
Fold a paper plate in half. Cut just below the ribbed edge about 4/5 of the way around, stopping about where my thumb is.
Cut away about a 1/4″ more from the inside of the plate until it looks like this.
When you open the plate you should have a circular center similar to this.
Glue the completed spider to the center of the plate-hat.
Rock on, spider heads!
