Paper Plate Spider Web

This Paper Plate Spider Web craft is a great Halloween craft for older toddlers on up. This craft involves marbles, so please make sure you supervise young children closely as it may pose a choking hazard!

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Here's what you'll need

•Paper plate (without waxy coating is better but not necessary)
•Black and white paint and brush(tempera or acrylic)
•Marble, or anything that is heavy and round like a marble (like a bead)

Here's how to make it...

1. Paint your paper plate black (if you have a waxy finshed plate you may need to give it a couple of coats). Once your black paint has dried, drop 2 or 3 small drops of white paint on to the middle of your plate. Place your marble in the plate and roll it around. The marble will spread around your white paint making a spider web design.
