This is a very simple activity that can be completed by the students without teacher help! They will use a black washable ink pad and use their thumbs to make a spider body at the end of each stick. After they are finished with the ink pad, they can use crayons/markers to add 8 legs and a spider face. This is super simple...but looks great! I usually use black ink pads...but you can always jazz it up by using a colored ink for their body like purple, orange, and red!
