A work colleague asked me how I would make spider decorations if I needed lots in a hurry perhaps for Halloween or for bringing Incy Wincy (Itsy Bitsy) Spider to life for a pre-school class.
I needed something that could be made quickly, easily, cheaply and in bulk and I think I’ve come up with just the thing!
This spider craft takes just a few minutes and needs very little prep or materials. Perfect for making Halloween decorations or as an Itsy Bitsy Spider craft too.
All you need for these spider decorations are some sheets of A4 black and white paper and some (optional) googly eyes and glue.
These spiders start from a folded sheet of A4 paper which enables you to easily make eight at a time, per A4 sheet, so they are really quick and economical too.
The webs can easily be doubled up for cutting them out too so it really keeps your preparation and creation time to literally just a few minutes.
So follow the instructions below and before you know it you can snip out enough for a whole class to enjoy singing and playing Itsy Bitsy Spider.
We think these spider decorations are really cute for Halloween too and I know my children will adore making lots and lots and popping them up all around the house.
A little piece of something like Blu Tack is all you need to fix them to walls, doors or windows without the risk of leaving any nasty marks.
I’ll also be cutting some out to make table decorations so that my tempting Halloween treat table is totally spooky-tastic!
I thought the clearest way to show you how these were made was to make a quick video which you can view below. You’ll be able to see how really quick and easy it is to make up a whole batch of Incy Wincy Spider Decorations.
You might also like our Incy Wincy Spider Play Set, great if you’ve got a little bit more time for creating, or maybe you’re brave enough to look at an amazing Wolf Spider carrying her babies on her back! If you fancy something a bit more cute try Handprint Spiders or playful Jumping Spiders…Boing!
