Instructions For Paper Cup Spider Craft


There are a few precautions you should take when working with this craft:

  • Always supervise small children, when working with a hot glue gun and scissors.
  • Plus, if you feel the spider looks too realistic and might scare your little one, talk through the process for the child to understand it’s not real. 

OK, with all the precaution tips in mind let’s start crafting! 

Step 1: Cut the paper cup in half.

No paper cup? Feel free to substitute it with a toilet paper roll or paper plate. With paper plate, popsicle sticks can serve as legs.
