After looking at their picture we discussed their body parts, 2 body parts and 6 legs unlike an insect with 3 body parts and 6 legs. We collected some egg cartons and broke them into groups of 2 for the head and body. They were painted black with 4 holes on either side (note our legs ave come our of the back part of the body however it should be the front half), threaded 4 pipe cleaners through the holes then out the other sides and painted a red strip on the back.
When asked what Cakes enjoyed doing the most when making her redback spider she said "putting in the cleaners as legs, it was really hard". She then reiterated I was not to touch her spiders as they are very "emonous", when asked what emonous means she said that "you might die or get sick". SO her spiders are sitting in the middle of a room and not touched, hopefully she will let me pick them up before someone trips on them.
