If there’s one thing my boys can’t get enough of, it’s playing outside and getting dirty — with all types of bugs under the sun: everything from worms and slugs to ants and spiders!
Spiders, especially have been of particular interest these days…as more and more of them seem to pop up around the corner.
And with Halloween season approaching, I knew it was time for an easy Halloween craft involving spiders. This time we opted for a handprint craft since my 2 year-old can never get enough of those!

To make this toddler craft, you’ll only need a few supplies: black washable paint (or whatever color spider your kid wants) and some googly eyes (we had these neon green edible eyes handy, so went with those for an even cooler effect).
Paint your child’s hand black with a brush – these foam rollers work well for spreading evenly — and place it on your paper. Then you can use the same hand to create the other half of the spider’s body — just overlap the palm part. My little guy moved a bit when placing his hands, but still same cute effect :). (You can paint on a spider web before hand for even more fun.)
We decided to add in a special message like “I love you so much, it’s scary!” If you want to make this easy Halloween craft even easier, use the free printable template that includes the spider web and message.

Such a fun and easy spider craft for toddlers and preschoolers to make this Fall!
