Spider Book and Craft Activity

Spiders are not insects!  Spiders are arachnids!  Spiders have 8 legs! YIKES!

Spiders, Photo Fact Collection is a great oversized book filled with many large, colorful, fabulous pictures and illustrations of spiders! It is filled with lots of interesting facts. After reading the book the kids might like to make the following spider craft made with recycled egg cartons.
