Cute and Easy Spider Crafts For Toddlers and Preschoolers
This paper plate spider is fun for kids to make. There’s stamping and cutting and gluing involved, which all toddlers and preschoolers love to do. Kids will also get some counting in as they count out 8 spider legs and 8 spider eyes.
This pom pom spider and web craft doubles as a fun weaving activity. Weaving the wooly spider webs is a great way for young kids to strengthen fine motor skills. They’ll have fun wrapping and winding the wool into a web and they’ll get an adorable pom pom spider to place in it.
This handprint spider craft is so fun for toddlers and preschoolers to make. The process for making the web is a lot of fun, and they’ll delight in seeing their handprints transformed into this friendly little spider.
