Preparing Spider Object

Draw the spider object (a common drawing, not API). Convert it to movie clip by clicking Insert > Convert to Symbol or pressing F8. Add actionscript to the movie clip:
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
	startDrag("", true, 120, 120, 280, 280);
This actionscript is telling the mouse (when moved inside the stage) to be hidden and start drag the movie clip (spider) instead, inside the constrain defined area.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
