Make a super easy paper spider craft this Halloween with little ones!
This non-scary 3d spider craft is so much fun to make with kids and they will love giving colorful designs to their spider’s legs!
It comes with a printable template that you can cut out, color, fold and simply stick together to make the paper spider. This is a simple and quick Halloween craft to do with toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and elementary school kids.
Stick a yarn behind the spider craft and hang it as part of your Halloween decor at home or in classrooms. Kids can also play with it as a puppet. My daughter loved making her own colorful paper spider and having a pretend conversation with it!

Download and print the template on white A4 cardstock.
Cut out the big rectangle and let the kids color the smaller rectangles. We used crayons and markers to color ours. Once the kids have finished coloring, cut out the smaller rectangles. You will get 8 paper strips that will form the spider’s legs.
Use the white big rectangle to trace and cut out another rectangle from colored paper. (Or you can just color in the white rectangle). Make a small V-shaped fold on one side of it followed by a big V-shaped fold. The small V fold will be the spider’s face and the big V fold will be its body.
Now, let’s fold the spider’s legs. Make a small fold followed by a big V-shaped fold on all the spider’s legs.
Stick the spider’s legs under its body one by one.
Finally, draw a face for the spider and the easy paper spider craft is ready!
Now, stick a yarn behind it and hang it on the wall!
