Easy Spider Rock Craft

spider rock craft

This easy spider rock craft is perfect for big and little kids alike!  They can make this cute and simple spider magnet in minutes.

Too busy to make this right away?! Pin it for later!  Pin this project to your favorite craft board on Pinterest and it’ll be waiting for you when you’re ready.

This rock craft can be made harder or easier depending on the age of the child who is making it.  For younger children, have all the pieces cut for them ahead of time and use white glue to stick them on.  For older children, have them cut the legs on their own and use a hot glue gun (with adult supervision).

This mason jar spider craft and dancing spider craft are pretty cute too!

First you need to start with some rocks, clearly!  I really like these flat river rocks for painting from Amazon.  It can sometimes be hard to find the perfect flat rock for craft projects and so these rocks make it easy!  But if you want to go out rock hunting just be sure to wash the rocks that you find thoroughly before using them for your project.
