Spotty Spiders Art Project

We have a new Reading Pack with a fun rhyming text Five Spotty Spiders. Our packs include a printable and digital text to use during a shared reading session with your learners. Ten activities are also in the pack to accompany the story.

Today we'd love to share an art project that you can do alongside or independent of this pack. We took the steps over 3 different sessions, allowing drying time in between.

Spotty Spider Art Project

You will need:
  • art paper
  • 5 paint colors + white
  • googly eyes (optional)
  • black sharpie
  • scissors
  • glue
  • black paper
  • white oil pastel

  • Use your finder to make ovals with the paint and create 8 legs extending out from the ovals.

  • Once dry, use a contrasting color to dab dots on each spider.
  • Make white dots for eyes. When dry, use a black marker for eyeballs.

  • Alternatively you could use googly eyes and stickers!

  • Cut out each spider when they are dry.

  • Use a white oil pastel to draw a web on black paper.

  • Glue the spiders on the black paper!

The spiders can be created with finger painting or by using a brush. Your little ones will delight in the exploration of color and shape and by creating something truly unique!
