Summer Crafts for Kids - Friendly Styrofoam Spider
There is no reason to fear this spider. Who could even resist that friendly face with the big eyes and red nose?
For this project you will need:
- large and small styrofoam balls - black acrylic paint - paint brush - wiggle eyes - red bead for nose - black chenille stems - toothpick - tacky glue - scissors - dimensional paint in red
Recommended for ages 7 and up
1. Paint the styrofoam balls black and let dry. 2. Cut 8 even lengths of chenille and set aside. 3. Dip both ends of the toothpick in the tacky glue and insert these ends in the large and small styrofoam balls to connect the head to the body. 4. Punch 4 holes in both sides of the larger styrofoam ball. 5. Dip one end of each of the chenille stems into the tacky glue and insert them in each of the 8 holes in the body. 6. Bend the “feet” of the spider so make it stand easier. 7. Glue the eyes and nose on with tacky glue. 8. Using the dimensional paint, draw a smile under the nose.
