Spider Craft Preschool Tutorial- How To Make A Silly Spider Hat
Craft Supplies Needed for your Halloween Spider Craft:
- Tape or Glue (glue stick or school glue)
- Wiggle Eyes (AKA googly eyes)
- Construction Paper or Scrapbook Paper (black paper would be most traditional but the kids can have fun with any color for the spider’s body)
- Black pipe cleaners (optional but they can be used in place of paper strips for the legs)
How To Make These Preschool Spider Crafts Hats:
To get started on this fun craft, grab your supplies and head to the table.
Measure around your child’s head then measure that same length out on your piece of paper. We had to glue two strips of paper together to make our band the perfect size to fit around my child’s head. We made the body of our Halloween spider pretty tall…probably about 3 inches wide. You definitely want a nice fat size band for your spider legs to connect to.
Once you have got the band measured and the ends are glued together, cut eight strips out. We just cut strips the length of our paper. They can be thin or wide. It really is up to you. Next, glue or tape (we found taping to be easier for this part) your legs to the head band. 4 legs on each side. Make sure to not put any in the front or they will be in your child’s eyes while he/she is wearing the hat. Once the legs are taped, it’s time for the final touches…adding the eyes!
Fun fact- most spiders have 8 eyes. The googly eyes help add extra silliness to the hat. My kiddos wanted to glue 5 eyes on our spider! So that’s what we did. Once you have the eyes glued on, your Silly Halloween Spider Hat is ready to wear!
