Pipe Cleaner Spider Craft

PIPE CLEANER SPIDER CRAFTToday, it has been one of those days! You know, the kind where your toddler is screaming; your baby is teething and biting you. Desperate to find something for Maxwell to do so he could be entertained; I’m praying for a moment of peace. While scavenging any left over craft supplies I surprisingly came up with this cute spider idea and had everything at home to complete it. Maxwell loves doing crafts, he quite frequently ask me to go to the local craft store. Sometimes we can not get to the store so I always have glue and paper around so he can at least go to town gluing anything he wants. He so far has glued leaves from outside, candy corn, cheerios and cut up construction paper. The possibilities are endless and toddlers love glue so its a win win.

This Pipe Cleaner Spider is a simple, cute and fun Halloween craft for the kids to enjoy.

You have two options, draw a circle for the spider body, or you may stamp the circle with a paper towel role which makes it more symmetrical. Bonus, kids love stamping with paper rolls and it’s an easy way for little ones who have not perfected their circles yet. By adding pipe cleaners for the spiders legs you get a more realistic look, while the googly eyes make him cute and silly. Just don’t forget the smile for this happy little spider 🙂
