In Superheroes Don't Get Scared... Or Do They? BogeyBoy ends up meeting lots of bugs. In this fun activity you can turn a pinecone into your very own spider friend!
This super simple craft makes a great autumnal craft activity and is fabulous for helping develop fine motor skills.
You Will Need:
- A pinecone
- 4 pipe cleaners
- A felt-tip pen
- Goggly eyes (or some white paper)
- A pair of scissors
- A grownup helper
What To Do:
- The flat end of the pinecone is going to be your spider's face, so starting just back from the flat end, wrap 1 pipe cleaner around the pinecone. Depending on the length of your pipe cleaner, start about 10cm along the pipe cleaner, so you end up with a pair of spider legs either side of the pinecone.
- Repeat this with the next three pipe cleaners, moving a little bit further back each time. This can be a bit fiddly, so take your time!
- Once you have 8 spider legs, check that they are all roughly the same length. If not, you can ask a grownup to trim them for you.
- Bend your pipe cleaners so they look like little spider legs.
- Now it's time to add some eyes to your spider's face. You can use goggly eyes, or just draw some eyes on paper and ask a grownup to help you cut them out and stick them on. Spiders can have LOTS of eyes!
- Draw or stick on a friendly smile.
- Ta Da! You've done it! You now have a friendly pinecone spider!
