Read This, Made That {Spindly Spiders}

In this tale, Happy Halloween, Max pulls out all the stops including dangling rubber spiders in a futile attempt to scare Ruby.  The quads absolutely L-O-V-E waiting for the end of the book when Ruby startles Max.   In honor of Max’s not-so-scary spider, we made our own spindly spiders.

We had black dessert plates from the quad’s birthday party that we used as the spider body.  I punched eight holes around each plate and let the kids string pipe cleaners through the holes.   I then dotted the center of the each plate with glue and let them stick an assortment of googly eyes. For a little more pizzazz, I swirled more glue onto the spider and let the quads dust them in black glitter.
