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!

What are YOUR favorite Halloween activities to do with the kids?
