Step 1: Download and Print the Free Spider Craft Template and Spider Web
Download the Free Spider Craft Printable. You will be stapling the printed PDF to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes. The printable PDF also comes with a spider web to use in this preschool craft.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Paper Spider Craft Shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know that you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
Step 3: How to Assemble
I recommend having a finished spider so the children can see what the final version will look like.
- Start with the large black oval which is the spider’s body. Glue the legs behind the spider’s body.
- Glue the smaller black oval onto the spider to make the head.
- Glue the eyes onto the spider’s face.
- Next, glue the mouth onto the spider’s face.
- Optional: Glue the spider onto the printed spider web.
- Don’t forget to write your name on the back!
