Secret Formula to be the best mom ever!!

Halloween Craft + Colorful Glitter = 2 happy little girls! This craft went over with flying colors and I was the momma of the evening! I actually had a lot of fun making this one, too!! Here are the top secret ingredients for making this project:

Materials

Colored glitter (Halloween colors: 4 pack at JoAnne Fabrics for just a $!)
Black construction paper
Purple Construction paper
Googly eyes
Elmer's white glue

Directions
For Glitter Web- Using white glue, we pretended to be spiders and designed our own webs onto black construction paper. Next, we used green, orange, purple, and black glitter to bring our webs to life. (just sprinkle right onto the glue!) A plastic table cloth comes in handy to catch any extra glitter- can get just a little messy!

For Spider
- Using purple construction paper, we cut out a circular body for the spider and 4 strips of paper about 6 inches long. (cut in half to make 8 legs) Next, we folded each leg accordion style and glued them onto the body of the spider. Finally, we glued on googly eyes and a glitter mouth.

Find a great place in the Halloween web for your new spider friend to crawl!

OH, btw, if you still want to guest post on Friday, just email me a little blub tommorrow night & I'll post it on Friday am. I'll include any links to your site & Usbourne site along with any pics too.

Maybe you could recommend a Halloween book or Thanksgiving book? Don't know if Usbourne has any, but I'd love to know :-)

Ooooo--I love these. I think I would like to these at school with the kids. Thanks.

Amy- I'm not sure why, but the texture of this glitter was different- almost powdery, so it wasn't as bad to clean up as the regular glitter. I actually had to stop using it in my classroom, because the custodians were getting upset that it was getting stuck in the carpet!! Thanks for stopping by! Jen
