Here’s a fun craft idea that’s easy to make, How to Make a Paper Plate Spider Web. These paper plate spider webs are super easy to make and your kids will have a great time threading up the web. In this example paper plates were used as they are easy to paint but you can just as easily use plastic plates.
So let’s get started.
How to Make a Paper Plate Spider Web
First, let’s get everything ready so you can leave the little ones to get busy and avoid all those interruptions.
Skill Level – Easy
Time Required – 15 minutes
What you will need
- Paper plates
- Googly eyes
- Hole Punch
- Googly eyes
Let’s get straight into it and have your child paint the paper plate their favourite color and let dry. If you are using plastic plates you can go straight to step 2.
When the paper plate is dry it’s time for the fun part so get your paints back out because your child can now finger paint a spider or two on the front of the plate and let dry. If you are using plastic plates permanent makers are easier to use.
Once the spider has dried add a couple of googly eyes and your spider is finished.
Punch holes around the outside of the plate. Depending on the age of your child try for placing the holes about 1 inch apart and 1/2 inch from the outside of the plate. If you punch the holes to close they could rip when your child is threading. Note the more holes you have the longer you have to cut your string.
Cut a length of string approx 4 meters long, if your child is young cut it short so it’s easier to thread and then join when you get to the end, leave a length of string at the end so you can hang your child’s project.
