So I decided to set this up as another after school activity for the girls…
How to Make Halloween Spiderwebs
- Black construction paper (brown paper bags work well too)
- A cake or pie pan (with straight sides)
- White paint
For prep, I cut down some paper grocery bags to fit into our pie plates and put some white tempera paint and a spoon in small bowls.
Maia and Daphne each chose a few marbles to cover with paint.
Then they rolled the marbles around in their pie plates, making the Halloween spiderwebs on the paper.
By the way, see the marble that Maia’s picking up with her right hand? They kept jumping out of the pie plates. Next time I’d use a cake pan or other dish with straight sides rather than angled sides.
Here are some of their finished spiderwebs.
Maia drew a couple of spiders to add to the webs.
Here’s the finished product. We glued them on and hung the completed spiderwebs up around the house.
Marble rolling is always a hit here, and this was an art project that both girls really enjoyed. Have you tried it yet with your kids?
