Halloween planning, decorating, and activities are in full swing! Perhaps its the influence of being a (former) biology teacher & animal nerd or just the fact that I don’t like the overly scary, gory Halloween stuff (especially for young kids), but whatever the case, I tend to use “creepy” creatures as the majority of our Halloween decorating. You know, things like bats, snakes, and of course, spiders! In a house of all boys, that tends to work well! They love all the animals around and my only issue is keeping them from playing with everything!
One thing I like to do around any holiday is include the kids in the decorating and baking. We tend to do a fair amount of crafts & activities! So, for those that enjoy that too, here are 5 different spooky spider activities to do with the kids:
These spider web snacks are really pretty easy to make, are super yummy, and the kids love them! They think it’s pretty funny to eat a “spiderweb”!
If you’re looking for some front door decor easy enough for the kids to help make, this spider wreath is perfect! Plus, you can make the whole thing for less than $5!
Kids LOVE anything glow-in-the-dark! So, they would have a blast making these glow-in-the-dark spider egg balls from Grinning Like and Idiot.
These yarn spiders on Eighteen 25 are not only easy to make, but they are kind of cute! You could make a whole army of these soft little spiders in no time!
And, for one more treat idea after all of that crafting fun, why not make some Spider Krispies from Cookies and Cups? YUM!
