They are simple to make and fun to hide in dark corners for guests to find.
I have tried to keep this simple and to the point for the younger viewers. If you are after something a little more challenging, perhaps incorporate a vibe motor and some moving limbs to the equation. Widow Maker
Step 1: What we will need
~ 1 X Coathanger (for the legs).
~ 1 X Egg Carton.
~ 2 X LeD.
~ 1 X Battery (that suits the two LeD's).
~ 2 X Short peice of wire or 1 X Long peice of wire to cut in half (you decide).
~ 1 X Pliers (to bend wire for legs).
~ 1 X Hot glue gun or suitable glue.
~ 1 x Large boot (to squish your Spidie if they go wild crazy)
Before we go any further. Who doesn't know what an LeD is?
An LeD is a Light Emitting Diode.
Basically it is like a tiny little globe that shines light. They come in lots of different colours and strengths. Using them will be a great way of making your Spidie stand out in the dark.
They are also going to save the world, especially the blue ones. Remember that kids.
Step 2: Making the body
Take your egg carton and cut out one of the holders.
We only need one each. So there is plenty more to make others.
Once you have removed one section, trim the bottom edge up so it is neat.
Make two LeD sized wholes at the front to suit your lights. Insert them and attach the battery.
To save having to solder just use some electical tape to hold the battery to the wires.
This will be it's body.
