What spiders and octopuses have in common? They both have eight legs. Did you also know that spiders are found worldwide on every continent except from Antartica?

Materials and tools:
  • One or more toilet paper rolls. For each spider you'll need one roll. 
  • Scissors.
  • Pencil.
  • Black marker. 
To make your own paper spiders watch the video or follow the step by step instruction:

1. Draw a line around the roll, about 1'' (2 cm) above the bottom edge.
