Today, we are transforming an everyday egg carton into a spooky delight. In this article, we’ll guide you through the steps to create a creepy crawly spider out of an egg carton!
With a few simple materials and a sprinkle of imagination, you’ll craft a fantastic egg carton spider decoration that is great for preschoolers and young elementary school students.
Egg Carton: 1 egg carton is enough to make 12 spiders
Cut out one egg cup section of the egg carton.
The egg cup section will be the body of the spider. Have your child paint the sider and make a face. Let dry.
Using a pen or pencil, poke 3 holes on two sides of the egg cup. Make sure the holes line up on each side.
Take 1 pipe cleaner and cut it into 3 even pieces.
Push pike cleaner through one hole and make it come out the other side. Bend sides down to form legs
Using a pen or pencil, poke 2 holes through the top of the egg cup.
Push pike cleaner through the holes on the top. Flip the spider upside down and twist the pipe cleaner together to secure it.
As a Halloween decoration, hang completed spiders from a string in windows or ceiling.
