Egg Carton Spiders

A simple spider craft that's great for Halloween, made with egg cartons, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, and paint! Note that the actual assembly time is short for this project, but you'll need to factor in time to let the paint dry.

Ages:
3 - 9
Est. Time:
1-2 hours

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. egg carton (1)
  2. pipe cleaners
  3. paint
  4. crayons - white
  5. googly eyes
  6. scissors
  7. paintbrushes
  8. hole punch
  1. Cut a cell out of the egg carton. This will be your spider's body.

    Paint the outside of the egg carton with black paint and let the paint dry. Then punch holes on the sides of each spider body for the legs.

  2. Use googly eyes and a white/light colored pencil to decorate your spider's face.

  3. Cut the pipe cleaners to make legs. Make a little bend on the end of the each leg. (This will be to make sure the legs don't fall out.)

  4. Thread the bended end of the leg into the body of the spider.

  5. Bend the leg.

  6. Repeat with all remaining legs. Ta-da! A fuzzy spider to add some pizzazz to your Halloween party.
