Emmylou was supposed to bring a bug to school for Show-And-Tell on Friday. It could be alive, dead, a toy-- whatever. Since she'd been asking to make a stuffed animal recently, she came up with the idea of making a stuffed spider to take to school. She picked out some fabric from some old scraps I had but then we had to get creative since I didn't have any stuffing. We ended up pulling out one of her old prizes from The Claw that was in a stash to go to Goodwill: a giant Hershey's chocolate chip. Once we pulled the stuffing out to use in our spider we also decided to repurpose the eyes and mouth. Voila!
Btw, yes, those are purple, sparkly pipe-cleaner legs.
