Halloween spider decorations give your house a creepy vibe on All Hallow's Eve! While creating these little spiders, your child will learn how to create the basic elements of a puppet by assembling and manipulating materials. Made from felt, chenille sticks and poms, these fuzzy Halloween spider decorations will give your guests a gentle scare.

What You Need:

  • Pipe cleaners, black
  • 2 poms, black or brown
  • Googly eyes
  • Low-temp glue gun

What You Do:

  1. Help your child cut the black chenille sticks into 4 pieces of equal length.
  2. Have them glue the two poms together to create the spider's body.
  3. Ask your child to center the legs under the spider's body. Help him glue them in place with the hot glue gun.
  4. Encourage him to bend the legs to create creepy, crawly spider legs.
  5. Have him glue the spider body to the center of the orange felt.
  6. Help him glue the eyes onto his spider.
