STEP 2: Prepare the paper plate

Start preparing your plate by cutting out the center and punching holes around the inside of the ring, as shown below.

STEP 3: Create the spider web with yarn

Next, cut a piece of yarn that's approximately two feet long and then tape one end to the back of the plate. Invite your child to practice fine motor skills by weaving the yarn in and out of the holes to create a yarn spider web.

Once you've gone through each hole, trim the excess yarn and either tape or glue it to the back of the plate.

STEP 4: Create your spider and assemble

To finish off your paper plate spider web craft you will need to make a paper spider. Cut eight strips of black construction paper as well as a small circle. Glue them together to make a spider.

Alternatively, make a pipe cleaner spider craft to sit on your spider web.

Then, place your spider on the web. If you'd like, add a small bit of glue to the yarn and attach the spider!
