Easy Halloween Party Spider Invitations

Even though Mary’s birthday is in late November we’re having her party in early October. Last year she had a generic Halloween party (with the worlds best spider pinata).Halloween Party, Kid-friendly, spider party, party invitation, DIY

She’s going to be 4 this year and she’s got a lot of opinions now! I loved having her help planning the party this year. She decided on a spider party, with a blue cake. What can I say? The kid loves Halloween! Mary has also been waiting impatiently to make some spider invitations.

I wanted to come up with something easy, that she could help with but that wouldn’t require a lot of time. I’m not a huge fan of my hand writing and I’m lazy so I printed out the info and glued it inside the invitations. We hand delivered our invites because time management isn’t my forte we liked the personal touch

Supplies:Halloween Party, Kid-friendly, spider party, party invitation, DIY

? Blank cards & envelopes

? Ultra fine tip black sharpie

? Black paint

? Small dish

? Circle shaped sponge dabber

? Small adhesive googly eyes

? Glue Dots

? Printed party info

Instructions:

1. Set aside any expectations

2. Pour a small amount of paint onto a plate or cottage cheese lid

3. Hand 3 year old paint dabber and allow chaos to happen. I’d recommend demonstrating what should happen at least once but they won’t listen

4. Allow paint to dry completely

5. Use the sharpie to draw lines from the top of each circle to the top of the card

6. Add legs to each body with the markerHalloween Party, Kid-friendly, spider party, party invitation, DIY

7. Find child again (follow the sound of the Frozen microphone) and let them stick on the googly eyes

8. Remove googly eyes from your hair, the dogs hair and the toddlers mouth.

9. Print out invite information, cut apart and glue dot into the cards

10. Add any information to the envelope before you add the card, the raised eyes make things wonky

Mary is in preschool now and she has an awesome teacher who does all sorts of arts and crafts with her class. She has always enjoyed painting but now shes getting good with scissors and she’s also a lot more patient.

I can’t wait to come up with even more ideas she can help with. To make it even more adorable she sings the teamwork song from Wonder Pets whenever we work together!

These are so simple and yet capture the spirit of Halloween. I also holiday seasons in general, although Halloween never materializes beyond watching scary shows here in South Africa.

These are cute for Halloween but I think I am going to save these for a spider storytime! This makes a great craft!
