Quick Craft For Kids: Pool Noodle Spiders

I made these pool noodle spider dudes with Molly yesterday evening for a bit of quick mid-term crafting fun. No gluing, no paint, no mess, made in less than 5 minutes type of quick craft for kids!! yeah that’s quick :) This would make for a great summer craft for the backyard or at camp!

I had picked up some crazy cool multi-coloured pipe cleaners at the new Tiger store in our city, and just had to make something ‘leggy’ with them to add to our cute spider craft collection.

Bend and shape the pipe cleaners for the spider’s legs.

The  just get busy with the sticky dots and eyes. We are huge fans of anything polka dot in our house so of course Molly’s new leggy friends, a boy one and a girl one, had to be polka dot too :)

    Cute idea – except spiders have 8 legs and 8 eyes

    Or as many eyes and legs as a child’s imagination cares to give them Leslie :)
