Materials needed to make Spider:

 

How to make a spider:

  • Step 1. Blow up balloon for the spider body. Use a few pieces of painters tape to secure to the wall.
  • Step 2. Tear a long strip of crepe paper. Secure one end behind the balloon. Then secure another 3-4 sections of the crepe paper to the wall. You’ll want to leave sections loose so it looks like spider legs.
  • Step 3. Repeat the previous step 7 times.
  • Step 4. Cut out eyes and fangs. Glue them to the front of the balloon and that completes this easy craft for kids. We used just regular Elmer’s glue sticks because hot glue using a hot glue gun would pop the balloon.

Tips for Halloween Crafts:

  • Painter’s Tape. We recommend using painter’s tape to attach the spider to the wall. Regular tape or items such as black duct tape can damage the wall and ruin the paint.
  • Pipe Cleaners. You can make smaller spiders by using pipe cleaners for the legs. These smaller ones would be cute to put on tables and around the party.
  • Colorful Spiders. You don’t have to keep with the Halloween theme of colors. You can opt to use any color you want and make colorful spiders.
  • Egg Cartons. Instead of balloons, cut out sections of an empty egg carton and paint them with black paint or cover in black tissue paper.
  • Craft Store. All of these supplies can be found at your local craft store, dollar store or online.

Easy Spider Crafts

  • Paper Spider Craft. Turn a plane paper plate into a fun paper plate spider. This is great for fine motor skills and a classroom activity. Just paint the plate black and add legs with black pipe cleaners or string.
  • Cute Handprint Spider. Trace preschooler’s hands to make itsy bitsy spiders. Kids will love this very busy spider web craft.
  • Spider Lollipops. Cover suckers in black fabric and tie with ribbon for an instant hit. You can use scrap fabric cut out with scissors into squares.
