You can make a variety of spiders using these directions, a toilet paper roll, and hand prints. Bugs can be hung from the ceiling on a string or piece of thread or taped to the wall to look like they are crawling.

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Start out by stapling both ends of the toilet tissue roll closed. Paint the toilet tissue roll black or whatever color you want your bug to be as this will be the bug's body.

While the paint is drying, trace both hands onto construction paper. Cut out the hand prints, cutting off the thumbs so there will be just the four fingers. These will be the spider's legs.

Glue each hand to the back of the toilet paper roll so there are four legs on each side of the body. Curl the bug's legs under a little bit to give them a little bit of shape.

You can now glue on wiggle eyes and also use scraps of construction paper to make a mouth, teeth or fangs, and any other details you want!
