Do you want a little scare with your lollipop?  Here's an eight-legged creepy crawler who is sure to surprise anyone looking for a treat. Create a Halloween spider and wrap it around a lollipop. This fuzzy creature is sure to cause a silly fright!

What You Need:

  • Lollipops
  • Black pipe cleaners
  • Medium black poms
  • Googly eyes (we used orange!)
  • Low-heat glue gun, or white glue

What You Do:

  1. Have your child twist one pipe cleaner at a time around the base of a lollipop. Center them just under the stick, then give a strong twist once or twice so each "leg" is securely fastened. Repeat with all four sticks.
  2. Ask him to gently bend the legs into place to make them look like the spider is getting ready to crawl.
  3. Have him use the low-heat glue gun to apply a dot of glue in the center of the legs. Then, quickly press the black pom into the glue and hold it for a moment until it's secure.
  4. Carefully help him glue on the two googly eyes onto the pom.
  5. Give your spider to an unsuspecting friend and watch for the look of surprise in his eyes!
