spider parade

You know I can’t resist a good bottle-cap craft

The bottle cap stash was coming close to overflowing in its very special under-the-kitchen-sink storage area, so I thought we should make some spiders.

All you need is some bottle caps (I like these dos equis ones), pipe cleaners, hot glue, regular glue, and googly eyes. Oh, and an enthusiastic spider-loving preschooler.

I cut the legs and then hot glued them to the back of the cap.

Once they dried, I bent the legs out in a spidery fashion and gave them to the eyeball girl.

The eyeball girl then determines exactly how many eyes each spider gets. Some get 2, some 3, some 5, and the less fortunate, just 1.

Then we let them invade our kitchen table. And we put one by the spider paste.

As for spider books, we really like:

Do you have any favorite spider books?
