Climbing Construction Paper Spiders

We love creating crafts that you can play with after! We have quite a few of these climbing spiders hanging on our windows in our home. And it is always the first thing my daughter shows her friends when they come over.  It’s a fun and cute Halloween craft that is perfect for fall!

Punch 4 holes in the paper tube.  2 holes, across from each other, on both sides. Cut a long piece of string/yarn.  You can make your string as long as you want, however, the spider will only climb as far as your child can pull the strings apart.Create climbing construction papers spiders using black construction paper.
