Paint the plate black on both sides. When it's dry, cut slits at equal intervals around the edge.
Knot one end of a piece of yarn and insert it in a slit so the knot is to the back.
Pull the yarn taut across the plate and through a different slit. Continue weaving the yarn until it runs out, knotting it at the back of the plate.
Cut a construction paper scrap so it resembles a spider. Glue it to the web.
Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
