One of Ethan’s vitamin supplement comes with a sponge in the bottle. Each time we open a new bottle, we need to take out the sponge. After some time, I see that I have so many of these nice round sponges and wondered what can I do with them. Today, let’s make good use out of it. Let’s make a spider, an albino spider that is πŸ˜›

Albino Spider

You'll need a round sponge, a white pipe cleaner, a red pipe cleaner and two large googly eyes

Glue the googly eyes onto the sponge

Cut the white pipe cleaner into smaller pieces. You'll need eight. Bend them and glue four on each side

Cut a short piece of red pipe cleaner. Bend in the middle and glue as the mouth. Your albino spider is done πŸ™‚
