Marble painting spider webs is a super quick and easy Halloween craft for children of all ages. It was the perfect afternoon filler for BB and myself. If you are worried about the marbles being too small for little ones then use table tennis balls.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own marble painting spider webs you will need:

  • A tray
  • Marbles or table tennis balls
  • White paint
  • Small bowl
  • Black paper

Place your black paper into the tray and the paint into a small bowl.

Next put the marbles into small bowl of paint and fully cover them with paint.

When they are fully covered add them to the tray with the black paper.

Get your little one to gently rock the tray back and forth to make the marbles round the tray.

BB was a little wary about the marbles coming out at first but soon found it really fun to try and make them come out (which is why I put the plastic sheet on the floor).

If you enjoyed doing these marble painting spider webs be sure to check out my Halloween ping pong lights and my Halloween painted light jars.
