Craft:

Spider Fingerprints: Draw five black lines from the top to the middle on white paper. Press your finger on a black stamp pad then place it on the bottom of the black line. It should look like a spider body on the end of its web. Take a black marker and draw eight little legs and two eyes on the fingerprint body. Repeat.

Spooky Spider: Cut a 3” circle and four ½” by 9” strips from black paper. Accordion fold the strips and glue them across the back of the circle to form eight legs. Use two white reinforcements for on the front for eyes. Punch a hole near the top of the body and attach a piece of black yarn. Tie a loop for your finger on the other end and dangle your spider to give your friends a spooky scare!
