i {heart} only one spider

and her name is Charlotte.

DD #1's class read Charlotte's Web and at the end of it they had "Charlotte's Web" day.  The students could choose any character of the book to dress up as.  My child chose the spider...

i took 2 pairs of Chad's black socks and stuffed them with poly-fill (i think that's what it's called). i safety pinned them to her shirt.  Then i threaded them together at the ends with fishing-wire-type thread and tied that to bracelets that she put on her wrists so they would move with her.  it turned out pretty good but by the end of the school day she was quite annoyed with the extra limbs and one of the threads broke as well.  apparently it is hard to play on the monkey bars with 4 extra arms. ;)
