A unit about spiders is a great topic for the month of October or around Halloween. This paper plate art project would go great with your classroom materials.
To make this paper plate spider, start by coloring a small paper plate black, either with marker or crayon. A crayon would certainly be less messy than a black marker! A small 6″ circle of black card stock would work just fine, but would cut out the coloring step and the small motor skill practice.
Next, cut out legs and eyes. Glue the eyes on the top of the plate and the legs under the plate, four per side.
And voila!! you have a fun paper plate spider to play with or use on a bulletin board.
They would be cute hanging from the ceiling with fishing line. This pattern is sold separately or in our theme book, Spiders!
