Who doesn't love a giant brain-sucking spider on top of their head?!

Who doesn’t love a giant brain-sucking spider on top of their head?!

These days, my little one is into all things animal related.  If I didn’t know better than to predict these things at age four, I’d say she was going to be a biologist when she grows up.  We recently went through a fascination with bugs, and being the mama I am, I found ways to bring that into our kids’ crafts.  Here’s one of our spider crafts.  This would be great as  Halloween craft, of course, but we don’t wait around for stuff like that here!

This one is particularly nice because it’s a super quick craft that doesn’t take anything special to make.

What You Need to Make a Spider Headband Craft for Kids:

  • Black Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Googly Eyes
  • Pipe Cleaner (optional, Dot decided her spider needed a mouth)
The spider headband takes craft supplies you probably already have on hand.

Cut eight strips of black construction paper to make your spider's legs.  We made them one inch wide and as long as the length of our construction paper.  Cut two additional strips about two inches wide for the headband.

Tape the legs on the inside of the headband so that they hang over the edge where they were folded.  Put four on the left and four on the right so the legs will hang down one either side of your kid's face.  (Creepy, right?!)
