my spidey-sense is tingling

meet blukey and inky, our egg-carton-pipe-cleaner spiders. the giant googley-eyes added a lot. a favourite feature for play is the web (string) attached up through the middle of the head, so you can take spidey for a walk or a swing on his web. i pre-punched the holes, which the boys threaded the pipe cleaners through - 8 legs of course. they colored them with felt-pens and glued the eyes on (the most torturing part was waiting for the glue to dry so they could play with them)!

great books:
Amazing Spiders: Eyewitness Juniors, Alexandra Parsons
The Very Busy Spider: Eric Carle
There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly: Simms Taback
