We were sent a lovely box of craft supplies to get crafting for Halloween. Inside were balls of wool, pipe cleaners and lots of lolly pops. We thought it would be fun to make some pipe cleaner spiders for Halloween, with a secret treat for the Trick or Treaters!
This was such a simple craft activity but the children loved it.

How to make pipe cleaner spiders for Halloween
Cut the black pipe cleaner into 4 lengths all the same size. Fold the legs around the lolly pop stick.
Gently bend the end of each leg so your spider stands up. Add googly eyes to the front of the lolly pop.
My son has always been a big fan of the Clangers. He’s lucky to have a subscription to the Clangers magazine and the latest cover gift was a set of the Froglets to paint. Perfect!
They were quite small so we put blu tack underneath and struck them to a paint tray, this made them slightly easier to paint.
I love embellishing my clothes to make them a little bit different. A few weeks ago I saw some alphabet patches by Jennie Maizels in Hobbycraft and knew they would be perfect for a little project.
I’ve admired Jennie Maizels style for a while. My daughter loves her clothes patches and seems to deliberately make holes in her knees so she can pick a pretty patch to go over them! Each letter in Hobbycraft was only a pound each so I picked the letters for my daughters name. The only problem was I didn’t have a jacket so I hunted one down on eBay and waited for it to arrive.
When it finally did I got to work. The letters were easy to apply with the help of an iron.
I took it to school at pick up so Little Sis could wear it home. She liked it a lot!
