Bobble Spider Step by Step Instructions:

Paint the printable Halloween spider web.

Colour in the Spider Web Template

Step 1: Arty Crafty Kids can use their favourite medium to colour in the spider web.

In this example, we’ve used a palette of watercolour paints. We love watercolours for their vibrant colours and ease of use.

Children can simply fill the spider web with colour or create patterns!

Step 2: Complete the spider web and leave it to dry.

Cut out the Spider Template

Step 3: Carefully cut out the spider elements.

The spider has been designed with little hands in mind to encourage Arty Crafty Kids to cut out the body parts themselves.

Trace the Spider Body Parts

Step 4: Transfer to the spider body and head to a piece of black card stock or paper.

Use a white pencil to trace the elements.

Add a piece of coloured paper to the back of the black card stock and cut the circular shapes out.

Trace the legs on black card stock and cut out.

Assemble the Spider

Step 5: Start with the spider body.

Use the coloured paper to add markings to the black spider body.

In our example we’ve given the spider blue stripes by cutting the blue circle body into strips.

The Accordion Fold – “Bobble”

Step 8: Using scissors or a paper cutter, cut out two even strips of coloured paper (or card for a better bounce, however it’s trickier for kids to fold) – ideally, the strips will be fairly wide and for length, I recommend cutting the paper from the shortest side of an A4 piece of paper or longest side of a piece of card.

Take the two strips and position them in a 90° angle as shown above. Glue the connecting papers together.

Fold the bottom strip over the top and crease the fold along the edge. This will make the accordion fold tight!

Securing the Accordion Fold

Step 9: Continue this process until all the is paper has been folded.

Seal the ends with glue.

The spider will now wobble and bounce as if it’s making a web!
