I’m one of those strange people who actually like spiders! My kids & I desperately want one as a pet….my husband however does not share our enthusiasm. There are over 40,000 species of spiders in the world. They range from 0.5 to about 90 mm or 0.02–3.5 inches. They are pretty fascinating arachnids (not insects). You can make your own little 8 legged friend with just a few materials!
- styrofoam bowl
- googly eyes
- paint brush
- black paint
- black pipe cleaners
Let’s make our own spider friend…
1) Paint the styrofoam bowl black & let it dry.
2) Cut the pipe cleaners in half & glue them onto the bowl.
3) Add googly eyes (half off of the top of the bowl) & you are finished!
Spiders have tiny hairs on their legs that are sensitive to taste!
