Paint with Spiders

Paint with Spiders

heck out this fun homeschool art idea from Fantastic Fun & Learning!

If you follow this blog, you know we love to explore painting with many different kinds of materials. Paintbrushes are great, but sometimes we just like to try something new. Some of our favorites have been painting with rockspine needlespom pomstea bagsvegetables, and corn kernels, to name a few.

While watching the girls play with the spiders in our collection of Halloween materials, I thought why not see what kind of painting we could create with spiders. So one morning I set up this invitation to create…

Invitation to Create-Spider Painting

And create they did…

Spider Paint


The full invitation included:

  • Large piece of paper (Ours was taped to the top of our craft table outside.)
  • Assorted colors of paint
  • Small plastic ring spiders (Ours are from Walmart and they are more sturdy than traditional spider rings. You will want rings that basically lay flat when you press them down in order to get the full spider print.)
  • Larger spiders (I tied a rubber band to a couple of them to see how the girls might use them to paint.)
