Incy Wincy Spider Craft

Incy Wincy Spider crafts are perfect for Autumn. With spiders taking over our garden and house at the moment (which Harry loves and I hate!) we thought it would be fun to make a toy spider. Harry LOVES singing nursery rhymes so we decided to make rain, a sunshine and a drain pipe so he could act out the nursery rhyme 'Incy Wincy Spider'.

Simple Incy Wincy Spider (itsy bitsy spider) craft and activity for toddlers and preschoolers. Make props to sing-a-long to the popular nursery rhyme.
Take a look at all our Autumn crafts and activities 



You will need:


  • egg box
  • pipe cleaners
  • googly eyes
  • paint
  • thread
  • card
  • yellow collage
  • blue tinsel


How to make Incy Wincy Spider:


  1. Cut out and paint a section of an egg box. 
  2. Once dry make 4 holes on each side of the egg box and poke the pipe cleaners through for the legs. 
  3. Add googly eyes and a smile. 
  4. Put a piece of thread through the top of your spider so you can make him dangle. 

For the drain pipe cover a piece of cardboard in kitchen foil. Make a sunshine from yellow card. We covered ours with yellow items from our collage box. Tinsel makes great rain. Put a bit of tape around the top of it to create a handle.

Harry has played with it every day since making it, either singing the song or chasing his dad around the house with the spider.
