Use these compact cuties to put on a puppet show in a shoe box theater. Paint jumbo craft sticks as shown. Add button, bead, felt, and googly eye features with tacky glue. Use a black marker to add nostrils or other details.
Oh, what a web we weave when making these for Halloween! Paint three craft sticks silver and let them dry. Glue them together at the center, forming an asterisk shape. Tie one end of a length of yarn (we used about 2 yards for one web) to the center of the sticks. Wrap it around the other spokes, then move outward, wrapping the sticks as shown. Tie off the yarn and add a plastic spider.
