How to Create Finger Print Spider Craft
Before I did this activity with my twins we talked about spiders and spiders webs. Check out these great books about spiders that are wonderful for starting the conversation about spider webs:
Grab your white paint and black construction paper. Start by making a dot in the centre of the page wth your finger.
Then using your finger to create a X with a perpendicular and horizontal line through the middle.
Next, have your little one draw curved lines in between each of the lines.
Continue until you reached the end of the lines.
Great Spider Craft for All Ages
This is a great Halloween craft for little and big kids. For preschoolers and kindergarteners give them the guidance above to help them create a web on their own.
For young toddlers just let them use their fingers to create the web any way they want. You can also let them use the plastic spiders dipped in white paper to paint the web.
