Halloween Spider Game DIY

Hey Brassy Apple readers,  Steph here again to share a fun kids’ activity.  Today I have a spider game that would be perfect for a Halloween party or for little Spiderman fans. First you’ll need a set of felt spiders.  They’re super easy, and super cute.  You can find all the instructions here: {How to make felt spiders}

 Then you need a spider web board. It’s simply made of Velcro hot glued to a black foam board. Take the hook side of the velcro (mine was pretty wide so I cut it into 4 narrow strips) and create a web pattern by crossing 3 long pieces, about 15 inches long each.  Glue them down to the foam board. Then glue down small strips between them.  Look, it doesn’t even have to be totally even!

Hang the board on the wall or set it up on a picture frame easel.  Give each player their own color of spiders and take turns throwing them at the board to try to get them to stick. Based on the ages of the players, you can have them stand farther back from the board to make it harder.  You can also see who can throw their spider closest to the middle.  Most little kids will just have fun trying to get them to stick!

And I’m curious…do you use spiders in your Halloween decorating?  These will be the only ones we have at my house.  Spiders that look remotely real make me jump every time 🙂
