Updated August 2022
We love marble painting around here. So we thought we’d give this classic art activity a Halloween spin and make spiderwebs using a marble and some paint!
This is a great action art activity for kids of all ages. And you get some fun and spooky decorations out of it, too!
How to Make a Spiderweb
- Black construction paper (brown paper bags work well too)
- A cake or pie pan (with straight sides)
- White paint
- Prep your materials
Cut down your black construction paper (or some paper grocery bags) to fit into your pie pans and put some white tempera paint and a spoon in small bowls.
Have your kids pick a few marbles to cover with paint.
- Make your spiderwebs!
Roll your marbles in the paint, and then use a spoon to put them on the paper. Then roll your pan around, making the Halloween spiderwebs on the paper.
- Add spiders!
If you’d like, create spiders out of extra black construction paper and add them to your webs once they are dry.
This is such a fun Halloween art activity and makes a great decoration for your home!
