Halloween Glitter Spider Web Kids' Art Activity

Halloween is quickly approaching. If you’re looking for a super-easy art activity to do in a pinch, this spider web project fits the bill. With only three ‘ingredients’, it doesn’t take much planning or a huge chunk of time. What’s the main ingredient? Obviously- glitter! And, what child doesn’t love the sparkly stuff? Sure, it’s not always the neatest craft material. But, does that mean you have to nix it from your artsy arsenal?

Halloween art
Put an opened garbage bag or extra piece of large paper down under your child’s art. This helps to catch the glitter, instead of letting it float onto the floor, table, your child, etc. Now that you’ve prepped, let’s make some Halloween art!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Black card stock paper

·        Clear-drying school glue

·        Glitter

Glitter spider
Here’s What to Do:

1.     Draw the spider web design using the glue. Make sure that the nozzle isn’t clogged up with bits and pieces of dried glue. Have your child squeeze the glue out in the spider web shape.

2.     Draw a plus sign. Then, have your child draw another line across the plus sign. She should have six lines total, all attached at the center.

3.     Connect each line with a curved horizontal line. Continue this, having your child progress outwards to make the spider web complete. She should keep going until she reaches the ends of the six lines.

4.     Sprinkle glitter over the glue. Your child can use one color, or combine a few.

5.     Shake the excess glitter off of the glue and into a bag. Have your child use this to cover any spots that don’t have glitter on them. Save the rest for future crafting.

If you want to add another layer (literally) to the project, glue on a few spiders! Check out my spider glitter paint print activity. After your child creates the not-so-creepy critters, have her cut them out and glue them to the web.
