Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Attack of the Play-Doh Spiders!

I just finished these up for Higgins' preschool class. They're having a Halloween party and I'm sending these Play-Doh spiders! I had to hide them downstairs, because he wants to play with them already.

You will need:
  • Small containers of Play-Doh (the dollar store often carries an 8 pack for $1 of a non-brand or Michael's has a 5 pack for $1)
  • Ribbon
  • Colorful pipe cleaners
  • Googly eyes
  • Hot glue or craft glue

1. Cut pipe cleaners to create 6 legs.
2. Glue legs to side of container.

3. Glue ribbon to container. I used Glitter Tape: it looks like a ribbon, but has an adhesive back.
        HINT (for Glitter Tape): If you have a straight container, it is easier to attach the ribbon. If your containers are slightly tapered at the bottom, you may have to make small cuts into the ribbon/tape to make it lay flat.
Small snip in ribbon tape to make it lay flat.
4. Glue googly eyes to side or top of the lid.

Larger sized container. Ribbon tape holding legs on. Eyes
attached to top of lid.
