I just finished these up for Higgins' preschool class. They're having a Halloween party and I'm sending these Play-Doh spiders! I had to hide them downstairs, because he wants to play with them already.
You will need:
- Small containers of Play-Doh (the dollar store often carries an 8 pack for id="mce_marker" of a non-brand or Michael's has a 5 pack for id="mce_marker")
- Colorful pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
- Hot glue or craft glue
1. Cut pipe cleaners to create 6 legs.
2. Glue legs to side of container.
3. Glue ribbon to container. I used Glitter Tape: it looks like a ribbon, but has an adhesive back.
HINT (for Glitter Tape): If you have a straight container, it is easier to attach the ribbon. If your containers are slightly tapered at the bottom, you may have to make small cuts into the ribbon/tape to make it lay flat.
