Halloween is now only 4 days away! Your costumes are picked out, the candy has been bought, decorations are hung up, but you still want to have some Halloween fun. This weekend get creative with your kids and dive into some crafts.

Paper Plate Spiders



  • Paper plates
  • Paint (paint brush) or markers

Directions: Paint one side of 2 paper plates. Once the paint dries cut 4 pipe cleaners in half, place them in between the 2 plates and staple together. Glue on googly eyes (spiders have 8 eyes, but glue however many you’d like!). Lastly cut a hole at the top and you can hang it just as spiders hang from a web!
