Steps :

  1. Take 3 craft sticks, place them in a criss-cross pattern & hot glue them. Take some yarn and wind around the craft sticks to make it look like a web.

2. Cut 8 thin strips from a post it paper for the Spider-legs, crinkle them & Glue it to a pom-pom. Stick two Googly eyes on the pom pom.

3. Finally glue the Spider to the Spider web.

Tip: When you put the yarn around the craft sticks, leave a little extra and don’t Glue it, so it can be used to hang it on a wall.

And here are some fun facts about Spiders!

  1. Spiders are found in every continent except Antarctica.

  2. Spiders have blue blood, a molecule called Hemocyanin provides this color since it contains copper.

  3. Spider webs are made of Silk.

  4. Arachnophobia is the fear of the Spiders.
