Spider crafts are a must this time of year if you ask me. They're so simple to do but toddlers and preschoolers love them. I really love it when crafts are so simple that they only take a few minutes to put together. Making a spider with pipe cleaners is one of those crafts -- perfect for distracting littles during the busy season.

This pipe cleaner spider craft can also be done in other ways, too. You can use a plastic bottle or even egg cartons if you don't want to use pom poms. Great for weekend playdates, too!

How to make a Spider with Pipe Cleaners

STEP 1: Gather your supplies

Before you get started with your pipe cleaner spider craft, make sure to gather up all your supplies! You can use any colour you'd like for your spider, but I recommend orange, purple, or black for the Halloween season.

STEP 2: Assemble your spider legs

To get started on your pipe cleaner spider, cut two pipe cleaners in half for each spider you plan on making.

Next, twist your four small pipe cleaners together in the center to form eight spider legs. Bend the ends down towards the table so it can stand like a spider!
