Spider Crafts for Kids

Spider crafts for kids are a great way to spend a rainy day. We all know that if you kill a spider it will rain - so maybe creating spiders will stop the rain!

Rainy days are usually filled with boredom if you don't have activities that you can pull out in case of rain. Keep these crafts and spring activities for kids ready and waiting for those rainy days.

We've also got another fun rainy day game that we recommend: It's Raining Again Game

Craft Supplies:

  • Egg carton
  • Black paint
  • Paint brush
  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Age Range:

3 years old and up

Time to Complete:

15-20 minutes (plus drying)

Step #1:

Cut out one shell from your egg carton. Paint the outside of the egg shell with black paint. Allow it to dry. 

While your egg carton is drying why not color this free hand drawn Spring coloring page!

Step #2:

Spiders have many eyes, so why just have a spider with two eyes! Once the egg carton is dry, add a bunch of googly eyes. You can use a few different sizes of eyes - be creative!

Step #3:

Cut brown pipe cleaners into eight separate lengths - about 2 inches long. Bend each one in half, then add a small bend at one end for feet.

Step #4:

Use the tip of a pen and poke four holes into each side of the egg carton - in a horizontal line.

Step #5:

Thread a pipe cleaner leg into one of the holes you poked - only thread it in a tiny bit. Bend it slightly to the bottom so it holds in place.

Step #6

Repeat step #5 for all eight of your legs.

Step #7

To make your legs more stable you can also glue them in place. Pull the pipe cleaners into the centre of the egg carton shell - place a bead of glue along the egg carton and then pull the pipe cleaners back into place.

Ta Da! Le's look at our spider crafts for kids result!

Fun way to keep busy on a rainy day and hopefully to help shoo away those rainy days!
