Learning about spiders is such a fun activity for October. If you’re not allowed to actually celebrate Halloween in your school, this is a fun alternative that can still be tied into the season.
Most kids love learning about spiders. This Spider Writing Craft is a fun way for them to show some of the fun facts they have learned about spiders during the unit.
Supplies you’ll need per student
A long piece of black construction paper
Some spider webbing – a small bit goes a long way
A plastic spider

Other supplies you’ll need
Glue sticks, school glue, white chalk
To make the Spider Writing Craft
The first step is to have your students write their spider facts on the printable. After they’re done writing, have them glue the paper to the bottom portion of the long black construction paper using a glue stick.
Next, have the students draw a large spider web or two if they’d like using white chalk at the top portion of the construction paper. Give them a small amount of spider webbing and have them keep pulling it apart to make another layer on top of the web they drew.
Have them use a very small amount of school glue to glue down the edges of the spider web to the construction paper. When it’s secure, have them add in their plastic spider into the web.
They look adorable displayed in the classroom for October or in your hallway.
