  • Reusable plate
  • Clothes peg
  • Black paint
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Black pen


  • Coloured paper or card for the background
  • Black cardstock
  • White scrap paper or card
  • Pom pom


  • Pour some black paint onto a reusable plate.
  • Use the peg to hold onto the pom pom and dip it into the paint.
  • Make a circle shape using the pom pom dipped in the paint and fill in any blank spaces.
  • While the paint is drying cut out the legs, mouth and eyes using black cardstock for the legs and mouth and white scrap paper or card for the eyes. Cutting the rectangle shapes out for the legs can be good scissor skills practice for younger kids while the eyes and mouth are obviously a bit harder.
  • Using a black pen make a dot in the middle of the spiders eyes.
  • Glue the legs, eyes and mouth onto your painted circle.

I've used quite a small pom pom for this craft because that's what we had at home but you may find it better to use a larger pom pom as these can be easier for the peg to grip.
Likewise you don't actually need to use a peg at all and you can just use fingers to grasp the pom pom but the peg can be helpful if your child doesn't like to get their hands messy.
