We are making these in my son’s class for the Halloween party… I think they are so easy, so cute, and so fun! If you’re looking for something last minute, this is for you!
construction paper for background (any “halloween” color, I chose purple, but I’ve also done this with orange paper)
black construction paper for spider
tempera paint in coordinating halloween color ( I chose orange, but purple would be fun on orange paper)
lid to a box or tub
DIRECTIONS: Remember, kids can do most of these steps on their own, it makes their projects very adorable. Sutton and Shaeffer did most of this work themselves (I obviously prepped the paint and supplies), but they folded, glued, rolled, painted etc.. on their own!
Squeeze a small amount of paint into a small bowl or cup
Put the marble in the paint and roll it around until it is covered
Put the construction paper in the box lid
Place the marble in the box (on top of the construction paper) and let your child roll the marble around making a ‘web’ like design
You may need to re dip the marble a couple of times to get the desired web design
Set your picture aside to dry
Trace something circular on black construction paper for the spider’s body, I used a jar of salsa 🙂 that was out from lunch!
Cut 8 half inch strips of black paper for the legs
Accordion fold/fan fold the strips of black paper so the legs are wiggly
Glue the legs onto the body of the spider
Glue the entire body and legs onto the web you painted earlier.
