Spiders are amazing! From the Spiderman cartoon and Charlotte's Web to the movie Arachnophobia, these creepy crawlers have always fascinated people. What's most unique about spiders is the way they catch their food; no other animal can spin beautiful tapestry webs to trap their food.

Here's a great project with a dual purpose! On the one hand, it's a really cute spider craft that kids can make using the materials we've included to gain an understanding of some of the distinctive features of a spider's anatomy. But wait, there's more! Hang it from a tree or plant, and the open "frame" serves as a canvas on which a spider can spin her web. Then watch as your new "spider pet" catches flies and climbs down her web to eat her prey!

Ages 4 and up.
