What do you need for a truly spooky Halloween? A giant spider in front of your home! Make this one easily out of materials that you have around your home – it’s a great activity to do with your kids. Simple instructions listed below:
-Collect nine black trash bags and stuffing such as newspaper, left over packing materials, or even leaves.
-Fill one trash bag with stuffing and tie it closed to create the spider’s body.
-Hold the second trash bag on its side and fill the length with stuffing.
-Wrap the empty bag around the stuffing several times, so that it looks like a spider’s arm, and secure it with a tie. Repeat this for the other seven legs.
-Use a glue gun to secure the legs to the body.
Pro Tip: You can cut off the bottom of Styrofoam cups and glue them onto the body to make eyes.
