The other day we were on a little bit of a halloween crafting frenzy. And as we were talking about spiders it struck me that we might be able to make spiders from handprints. The girls always love drawing around their hands so it seemed like a fun little activity. 

We folded a piece of black paper in half and drew an outline in chalk and cut them to out to create a spider shape with eight legs.

But then school boy said that we were missing the two parts on the top. After a little research we learnt that these apendages are called pedipalps and used for eating. So the next batch of spiders had eight legs and two pedipalps.

Simple and fun - and we learnt something too.
