Spider Crafts and Spider Preschool Activities, Games, Lessons, and Printables

Spider Crafts and Spider Preschool Activities.
Spiders are much more than just small, eight-legged, eight-eyed creatures that spin webs. Did you know that some spiders don't even spin webs? Learn about spiders, play spider games, learn with spider activities and lessons, sing a spider song, eat a "spider" snack, and create a spider craft. The Little Miss Muffet rhyme and activities, the itsy bitsy spider, and of course, Halloween, are a great time to learn about this very helpful creature. Samples of our more than 70 spider crafts, spider preschool activities, Little Miss Muffet activities, games, and printables available in our KidsSoup Resource Library:

Spider and Little Miss Muffet Rhyme and Spider Book Suggestion:

Recite the Little Miss Muffet rhyme with felt puppets:

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider,
who sat down beside her,
and frightened Miss Muffet away.

Ask children about their experiences with spiders. Do they like them or not? Look at different pictures of spiders. Discuss how spiders look like, what they do and why children are or are not afraid of them. Explain that spiders have eight eyes but cannot see very well. Most of them are very small and not dangerous. They help us by eating insects that we may not want to have around.

Go outside to find a spider web. Look at different pictures of spiders. Spiders are not insects. Spiders are arachnids. Insects have three body parts and six legs, whereas spiders have eight legs and two body parts, the abdomen and the thorax. Most insects have wings and spiders don't. Learn more about spiders.

Busy Spider Preschool Book

By Janet Bruno

Spiderlings hatch from eggs.
Each one has eight tiny legs.
A spider has more eyes than you.
Most have eight, you have two.
A spider has two body parts.
Across its web it quickly darts.
From a spiders spinnerets
Sticky spider silky jets.
Spiders feel the frantic tugs,
Of their favorite food: its bugs!


The Very Busy Spider

Music and Movement:
Sing "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" with movements.

The itsy, bitsy spider, climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain,
So the itsy, bitsy spider went up the spout again.

Listen to the song and view a cute animation.

To music, have children walk quietly like a spider. When music stops, spider hides somewhere close. Walk around to see if she/he sees a spider moving.
