How to make conker spiders
The first thing you will need to do it make a hole in each conker using a skewer or small screw driver.
To make the spiders legs thread 4 pipe cleaners through the hole and then bend them into shape. We found that the first couple of pipe cleaners were easy to thread but then it got a little bit harder. Try to make sure the legs are of a similar size.
Add some googly eyes and draw on a little smile to complete your spiders.
We made a spiders web for our spiders by dribbling glue onto some black paper and then sprinkling it with glitter.
I think our spiders look really cute and the kids have loved playing with them.
