This month we are joining in again in Project: Recycle & Create and the recycling material for this month is food containers. We used a fruit container to make this cute spider!
We will be reading this book: “The Forgetful Spider”, next week, and will be using it as a prop.
– Black fruit containers(the ones peaches come in)
– googly eyes
– pipe cleaners
– red craft foam or cardboard
– small red beads(optional)
What to do:
Simply cut the fruit container to use the circles for the spiders body. Make eight small holes at the sides for the legs.
Cut the pipe cleaners, so you have eight pieces. Press these through the holes. We added the red beads as “shoes” at the end of the pipe cleaners so it looks like our spider in the book.
Add the eyes and mouth and voila!
A cute spider made from recycling material!
Come on over to see what others did with this months material, and link up your own too!
