Use a small piece of tape to create a “needle” on one end of the string.  (check out the video below to see how we did it.)

String on one bead and pull all it all the way to one end. Then tie a knot around the bead.

Thread the string through both holes on one end of the tube and then back through the other side.

Finally, add the second bead and tie off that end.Create climbing construction papers spiders using black construction paper. A fun Halloween kids craft that they can play with when they're finished!
