My son and I were stuck indoors the other day because of illness and rain. So as we were running out of ideas and suffering from cabin fever, we decided to give the idea of making spider pegs with pipecleaners a try with a few supplies that we had at hand.
This is an easy craft that would enchant children of various ages and abilities.
What you’ll need:
- wooden pegs, of course
- felt tip pens
- pipe cleaners
- eyes – depending on the size of your pegs you can use either googly eyes or printed eye stickers OR just round white stickers and draw your own eyes.
Using the felt tip pens colour the spider’s bodies. Colours that complement each other such as a darker and a lighter tone are always best. Leave to dry for a bit.
Push the pipe cleaners through the pegs. Bend them so as to form legs bent towards the front and towards the back. Tell your cat that it’s not for them to play with!
Add your eyes and voila: you have your cute sassy pipe cleaner spiders!
