Spider Iceblock stick craft

You will need
15 Iceblock sticks
Resene test pot in Black
Googly eyes
Resene test pot in White (or white paint pen)

What to do
1. Cut out a rectangle from the cardboard, slightly smaller than 7 of your iceblock sticks placed together. Hot glue the card on to the iceblock sticks. This will form the body of your spider.

2. Once the glue has dried, turn the iceblock sticks over and paint the body Black. Then paint the 8 individual sticks black as well, these will make the legs. We gave ours 2 coats of paint, so they were nice and dark.
