Halloween will be here before you know it. And to get ready for Halloween, there’s nothing better than spider crafts for your toddler or preschooler. Spiders are as essential to Halloween as pumpkins. So try these out with your little one this fall.
Julie at Fab Working Mom Life had her son make this spider craft because he was obsessed with the Itsy Bitsy Spider song. This is a fun spider craft you can make all year long but it would be fun for gearing up for Halloween. Click here to see more.
These thumbprint spiders are actually part of my set of bugs and garden animals that you can make with your toddler or preschooler. Get some ink and start stamping your fingers. Click here for more thumbprint animals and a printable jar to “catch” them in.

7. Styrofoam Ball Spider Craft for Toddlers
I’m going to try this craft with Toot for Halloween this year. It’s by Craftulate and you can play the video above for a tutorial. You’ll have to pre-cut the pipe cleaners with wire cutters for your toddler or preschooler. But your toddler should be able to do the rest. You can get styrofoam balls on Amazon.
8. Yarn Spiders for Halloween
These yarn spiders are fun to make. It’s basically just wrapping yarn around cardboard. So easy a toddler can do it. Props to Make and Takes for this fun Halloween craft! Watch the video above for a tutorial.
9. Egg Carton Spider Craft
This ExpertVillage video is from 2008 but still a good craft to make with your kids around Halloween. Especially if you have a bunch of egg cartons leftover. We always have an egg carton.
10. Moving Spider Crafts
I thought this craft was going to be harder than it actually is. It’s actually pretty easy to do. You’ll have to help your toddler a little like most of these crafts. But they get to play with it after it’s finished! I love crafts that become toys. This one is by Paper Magic. You can get the sticks here.
Here is our attempt at the moving spider craft. We substituted a craft stick for a dowel rod. And we used pink and purple paper because we didn’t have black paper on hand. But it makes for a cute spider friend! And Toot had fun using the glue stick.
