This paper Halloween craft for toddlers is a great activity to do when you're looking for something quick and easy to put together. This simple craft is perfect for little ones and is sure to get them into the Halloween spirit.
Your child will love playing with their new spider friends – they're perfect for crawling around the house or playroom. Whether your little one is looking for a spooky craft or just some fun Halloween decorations, this little craft is sure to be a hit!
My favorite part of literally every craft we do in this house is that you can make it as unique to your child as you want. My middle child is our little artist, and he made each of the legs a different color of the rainbow.
It doesn't have to be true to a real spider — do packs of googly eyes come with that many?! It's just about whatever makes your little happy.
Give them free rein to be creative! Let them choose their favorite colors and decorations.
Prepare Your Halloween Paper Craft for Preschoolers
First, you'll collect your supplies, and cut out your paper.
You'll need two one inch circles for it's body, and eight strips of paper for it's legs. Then of course it's little eyeballs.
I'm all for letting kids innovate with these crafts. So if it makes your life easier and your kids are old enough to be trusted with scissors (or you're understanding that you'll have a lot to clean up later!) let them take the reins.
Step By Step Guide to Creating Your Paper Spider Craft
Give your spider some personality. Feel free to cut out mouth, create your own eyes, bend their little legs, add a bow, or add a crazy amount of eyes.
- Googly Eyes
- Black Construction Paper
- Glue (stick or white glue)
- Cut out two circles for the body
- Cut eight strips of paper for legs
- Glue the strips to one of the black circles, four on each side
- Glue the leftover black circle on top of the legs, lined up with the body underneath
- Glue googly eyes on top
I love glue sticks for this, it's easy to use and not soak in glue!
Let your creativity flow here! You are free to change colors, use pipe cleaners for legs, or add extra eyes. The choice is yours! I love seeing what my little's create after I show them the instructions, it's always fun and unique!
