Here is a fun craft to make cute spiders using a my favorite kitchen utensil to paint with – the potato masher.
Here’s what you’ll need to create your own Potato Masher Spiders:

- Black Washable Kids Paints
- Green and black Construction Paper
- Googly Eyes
- Rounded Potato Masher
- Bowls for the paint
Easy Directions to Make a Potato Masher Spider
Gather your supplies. Using the scissors cut eight legs for each spider you will make out of the black paper.
Dip the potato masher into the black paint (make sure the entire surface is covered in paint so that it stamps a full circle) and stamp it three times on the blue construction paper to make three spiders.
Add the construction paper legs of the spiders directly into the paint. If the paint is dry use a bit of glue, if it is still wet stick the legs directly into the paint.
Before the paint dries add googly eyes to the face of the spiders.
This craft makes a great fine motor skill activity as well!
