This paper plate spider craft is a very toddler friendly Halloween craft. It uses very simple materials and doesn't have a lot of steps so it's good for a toddler sized attention span. We had origionally intended to use some string to hang this craft up, making it a great Halloween decoration. Our daughter loved it so much that she wanted to carry it around so we decided to use a pipe cleaner instead to make it a bit safer as a toy. She had a blast making her spider craft "creep" along the floor scaring everyone that it found (and when we were done we used it to teach her little sister 'itsy bitsy spider'). We hope you enjoy this cute Haloween craft as much as we did!

What you'll need:

  • Small paper plate
  • Black paint
  • Paint brush
  • Scotch tape
  • Black construction paper
  • Scissors
  • White pipe cleaner or yarn
  • Glue
  • 2 large googly eyes
How to make your Paper Plate Spider:
  • Paint the paper plate black on both sides and let try.
  • Cut 4 strips of construction paper out. Each strip should be the length of the paper. Then cut each stip in half so you have 8 legs.
  • Tape the legs to the bottom of the plate, 4 on each side.
  • Glue the eyes onto your spider.
  • Have an adult help poke a hole in the center of the plate and attach either a string or a pipe cleaner through the hole so that you have a way to hang your spider craft. If you use the pipe cleaner, bend it once it's through the hole and then tape it to the bottom of the plate to secure it.
