Create Fun Bugs!!
We have created another FUN BUG Egg Carton Spider Craft post. We love these little bugs, and its ACE that the little Witch is learning them at school. The Witches say that they are scared of spiders, I don’t want them to be scared!! If I see a Spider, I take them to it and show them that the Spider is just as scared!! Haha, I bet you think I am mean!! When I was a little girl I use to chase my brother with a spider in a jar. I use to keep them as pets, yes I am crazy!! Hehe!! We have created a Spider Craft for children to enjoy and to play with. My Witches love playing with the BUGS that we have made.
From the BUGS topic which you may have already seen in another post, where we made a Bumble Bee using an egg carton box. Keep hold of your egg carton boxes, they are so useful for crafting and you can make things like the Flower Craft or even a little chick!! These crafts are super easy and be found on the Easy Kids Craft Page.
I asked the Witches which Bug is your favourite? They named quite a few. I said to to them how about creating 2 Bugs each!! It can be quite a hand full having 2 Witches creating something together, me trying to take photos and then 1 Witch is waiting and decides to get on with it her way. I actually do not mind this at all, its their website and they can create the crafts how they want to!! Haha!! This is all about doing easy crafts with your children!! This post contains *Affiliated Links!!
The Witches decided to make a Ladybird, Bumble Bee, Spider and a Grasshopper!!
Materials needed for the Whole Bug Craft:

Starting the Egg Carton Spider Craft!
First of you will need your egg carton box. Cut out 4 egg compartment slots, 1 for this craft:
In this post we will only be showing you
how to make the Egg Carton SPIDER Craft!!
Egg Carton Spider Craft
To make the Spider you will need:
Paint one of your egg cartons in black paint? US
Leave the paint to dry (boring bit for my Witches):
Now you can stick/glue on the wiggly eyes US (best place to stick these are on the smallest bit of the egg carton):
Now you will need a black pipe cleaner: US
Cut the pipe cleaner into 6. Fold in half and in half again. Tie a small knot on the ends of them:
With a sharp tool, make 6 small holes around the edges. Feed the pipe cleaners through the holes. This is really good for your children to do, my Witches enjoyed feeding the pipe cleaners:
Thats the end of making a spider. This craft is really EASY for kids and they will love playing with the Spider. Kids can count the legs, count the eyes, getting them to learn colours. Our BUG posts will be educational for children. Please email email@example.com for further information on this craft.
