Create this adorable, friendly spider for your young Halloween revelers.
Cut a one inch circle from your pool noodle.
You will need a second piece of pool noodle. If you have one that is a different color and/or shape it would be best to use that. Cut another one inch circle. Cut two notches from this piece.
Take one of the pieces you just cut off and place it in the hole of the other piece of pool noodle.
Cut two small one inch pieces off of your pipe cleaner.
Use one small piece of pipe cleaner to attach the remaining small piece of pool noodle to the larger piece. This is the head of your spider.
Fold the remaining pieces of pipe cleaner in half and cut them at the fold.
Fold the pieces in half again and cut them at the fold. You should now have eight small pieces, exactly the same length. These are the spider's legs.
Insert the pipe cleaner legs into the spider's foam body.
Use glue dots to attach his eyes.
Chase away those winter blues!
