Yes, I will say it again! I love holiday crafts! The kids and I love using our simple holiday crafts to decorate the house or create gifts for others. Halloween is on our minds so we decided to try a potato print spider craft. I have a bad habit of buying one of those large bags of potatoes with lots of ideas for them and only get through half of them before they start sprouting, lol. So what better than to put those potatoes to use crafting! The kids had so much fun with our polar bear potato prints, I could not wait to get started with our new craft.

Supplies/what we used:
purple, orange, and yellow crayola paint Crayola Washable Kids Paint set of 10 Bottles (2 fl oz/59mL)
googly eyes Wiggle Eyes Bonus Pack
How to make/what we did:
I cut up a few potatoes. We needed at least 3 for each color of paint. I added paint to a paper plate. The kids came and dipped the potato in the paint and pressed it on the paper. We made several and then left them to dry.
Once the prints had dried we came back to transform them into spiders. I added legs with the sharpies and the kids got crazy with the glue and glued on googly eyes.
The potato print spiders turned out so cute. What? Did I just refer to a spider being cute?! This might be the only time I do that. But we look forward to hanging these up on the art wall to get us in the holiday spirit.
