Paper Plate Spider

As all my crafts are, this is easy to make and a child should be able to do it by themselves.  My son loves to make a whole spider family and hang them all over.  It actually ends up looking pretty cool if you hang them and at different lengths.
Paper plates
Black paint
Black construction paper
White paper
Black marker
Blue marker

Step 1: Paint the paper plates black on both sides

Step 2: Let dry

Step 3: Cut black construction paper into eight even strips and fold like an accordion

Step 4: Cut out two ovals for the spider’s eyes

Step 5: Use the black marker to draw the spider’s pupil on the white circle.

Step 6: Use the blue marker to give the spider blue eyes

Step 7: Glue the eyes onto the top of the black paper plate

Step 8: Glue 4 legs on the bottom each side of the black paper plate
