How to Make Halloween Spiderwebs With A Marble and Paint!

We’ve done a lot of marble painting here, but until now we hadn’t tried the popular marble-rolled Halloween spiderwebs (do a Google or Pinterest search to see how popular it is!).

So I decided to set this up as another after school activity for the girls…

HALLOWEEN spider webs – marbles in 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?

    I did this last year with my boys! We used plain black construction paper and white paint and I loved how they came out! We had Halloween stickers and the boys chose spiders to stick on the web (though drawing them is much more creative!). I want to do this activity this weekend with them again. Easy and fun!

    My boys (now older) did this in Kindergarten, but I recall they did it at Easter time with lots of bright colours and then they were cut into large easter egg shapes. I love how it’s been adapted into a Halloween theme.

    this is such a cute idea. I am a pinterest junkie and hadn’t seen this yet! I am having an extra little girl to watch on Halloween, so I wanted to be prepared with 3-4 fun activities to do that day…this will be one of them!
    Thanks again,
    Sarah M

    What a great idea! Thank you so much for always providing such great inspiration. I recently joined a playgroup and next week I will be hosting an art activity inspired by your amazing work. Thanks again and happy weekend!

    I like the spider sticker idea, too! With two sticker-loving daughters, I know they would be all over that.

    How fun! I love the idea of doing marble painting at Easter and making Easter egg shapes from them. I’ll have to remember that…

    Great! And I like the idea of doing some Halloween-y activities on the actual day.

    I love this! We are so going to give it a try with ping pong balls. I’m still a bit nervous about my littles with marbles since they are in the 2 and under set. We did a project earlier this fall with ping pong balls in roasting tins. The tins are nice and light for little hands. :) Of coarse, hehe .. I choose to do this one outside with my littles because well … it doesn’t take long for balls to start flying around here. :)

    Carla,
    I couldn’t agree more! I now consider the Artful Parent to be as essential a read as the morning paper (heheh … if not more so). :)

    fun activity! …and a teachable moment that spiders have 8 legs, not 6 (insects). great math activity. if one spider has 8 legs, how many legs will 2 spiders have?
