Itsy Bitsy Spider Went Up The Water SpoutLast week Mai asked me if we could make a craft with sunshine, rainbows & clouds. We made a couple of cute paper plate crafts together with all of these things, but when we were finished, she looked at me and said “Mama, you forgot the spider & the spout.”  I apologized for being a silly mama & told her that we could make our spider craft another day.

My daughter does not forget a thing, so of course she did not forget that I promised her an Itsy Bitsy Spider craft.

What you will need:

3 toilet paper rolls or 1 paper towel roll

Craft pom poms

Pipe cleaners

Glue

Paint

Yarn

A sheet of cardstock

Optional: construction paper, cotton balls, buttons, markers, crayons or other embellishments to make your background.

Directions:

Cut your paper rolls open lengthwise. Paint them white & let dry. Craft a spider using pom poms & pipe cleaners. I let Mai glue hers together, but then used a glue gun to make it more secure. Glue a long piece of yarn to the end of your spider. The piece should be long enough to feed through the whole spout.

Glue the painted tubes to a piece of cardstock, cut side down. Open the tubes slighty to widen your spout. Cut a small section of tube in half lengthwise & glue it so that it comes out of your gutter.

Run your piece of yarn up the pipe so that the spider dangles below the spout. Let your toddler pull the spider up & back down.

Add embellishments for a background to create a scene. Mai drew in a big bird & even dedicated her craft to me. Awww.
