Paper Plate Spiderweb


Even if you're not into spiders at Halloween, this is a neat idea for any time of the year.

Materials

  • Paper plate
  • Pie plate or round cake pan
  • Black paint
  • Marble

Directions

  1. Place a paper plate inside a metal or aluminum pie plate or round cake pan.
  2. Put a small amount of black paint in the center of the paper plate and drop a marble in.
  3. Your child will have fun moving and tilting the pie plate or cake pan from side to side to make a spider web on his plate.
  4. For a variation, paint the paper plate dark blue or black first and use white paint for a more realistic looking spider web, or use more than one color of paint for a rainbow spider web.
