Spider Pops

While outside playing yesterday we found 3 or 4 tiny spiders Neevah was quite intrigued and found them less scary than the normal big hairy spiders we get around here. As a treat for the kids and to continue this new found interest in spiders I created some spider pops.

To make spider pops you will need lollipops, black pipe cleaners and small wiggly eyes ...
center the pipe cleaner around the lollipop stick making sure both sides are even and then twist them tight .... repeat 4 times to make 8 legs .... glue on the wiggly eyes .... bend the ends of the pipe cleaners so they look like spider legs .... ta dah done!

Neevah and her spider pop

Double trouble one for Neevah and one for Liam

Share this idea around but please if you use my photos link it back to the orginal post thank you

What a simple yet genius idea! Can't wait to try it. I will also make an orange pumpkin around the lollipop: do you think it would work?

Miranda said...

These are so cute I absolutely love them!!! One question though, I noticed the kind of lollipops you used when I was little I used to eat those too and I have been looking for them everywhere!! Can you get back to me on what the name of those are?!

Thanks and it would be much appreciated!!!

Philippa said...

Hi Miranda - they are called Chupa Chups :)

Megan said...

I have been looking for chupa chups for a very long time now! I used to eat them when I was younger! Where did u find them?

Philippa said...

Hi Megan
I'm not sure what country you live in but in Australia (or at least the part where I live) you can find them in supermarkets and sometimes the cheap shops

LOVE. Extra points for the spiders being anatomically correct! (I'm a tarantula owner and it drives me CRAZY how most of the cutesy Halloween spiders are actually TICKS :-)

Paula said...

just picked up the stuff to make these for my boys' halloween parties at school and daycare. Thanks for the idea.

Billie said...

Making these for my nieces birthday party tomorrow night...I'm sure it'll be a hit...thank you!

Carmela Cuevas said...

What kind of glue did you use?! Regular school glue perhaps?!

Philippa said...

Carmela - you are testing my memory as I wrote this post over 2 years ago now. It may have been hot glue but school glue would work you would just need to give them time to dry before moving them

Nicole Mccall said...
