Spiders may be creepy, crawly and sometimes frightening. Not this one though; it's filled with flavor! Help your child create his own spider candy bag by folding paper into a pocket to create the spider. This little fella may not frighten friends, but he sure will cause a lot of giggling!

What You Need:

  • Black construction paper, 2 sheets
  • Googly eyes
  • Tape
  • Tissue paper, ½ sheet
  • Scissors
  • Treats

What You Do:

  1. Help your child create the body of the spider by folding a sheet of black paper in half, keeping the creased edge to the bottom.
  2. Ask him to help you fold the side edges back and tape them in place to create a simple pocket.
  3. Have him cut out eight strips of paper for the spider legs. He can cut them however he likes, as long as they are separate shapes. Have him count out loud as he cuts them out to sneak in a little number practice.
  4. Encourage him to tape the legs on the back of the spider.
  5. Fill the spider's stomach with yummy treats!
  6. Finish the spider bag by gently pushing the tissue paper down on top of the candy, leaving most of it sticking out of the top of the pouch.
