Yarn Spiderweb - Halloween Craft for Kids



The last thing I want to encounter is a spider with fuzzy legs.......Unless, of course, it's in the form of a cute Halloween craft!


Supplies:
  • Craft Foam
  • Yarn (2 colors)
  • Button
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to Make it:

1. Cut a LONG piece of yarn. Wrap it around a piece of craft foam and tie the beginning end to itself to secure it:





2. Keep on wrapping the long piece of yarn around and around from different angles and sides. When you get to the end of the yarn, tie it to an already wrapped around piece to secure it.




This is your SPIDER WEB!




3. With a different color of yarn, cut 3-4 pieces about 2-3 inches long. Choose where you want your spider on the web and tie the pieces around a web piece.





These are your spider legs!





4. Finally, glue a button over the middle of the legs. If you want you can also glue on googly eyes, or just leave it as is.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Shape Bird - Educational Craft



Birds come in all shapes and sizes.
And some birds come in just SHAPES! :)
Here is a fun and educational craft you can do with your little ones.


Supplies:
  • Craft Foam or Construction Paper in yellow and the color you want your bird to be.
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • 1" Googly Eye

Make it!

Step 1. Using the color you choose for your bird, cut out a square about 3" big, a small semi-circle, and a small crescent shape.

Step 2. Cut out 3 small yellow triangles.






Step 3. Help your child name all the shapes, including the eye (circle). Tell them you're going to create an animal with the shapes. 

Step 4. As you show your child where to glue each shape (as shown below), have them try to guess what animal they are crafting. Let it dry and you're done!


Have fun!
