Easy Spider Web Resist Art for kids

Resist art is so much fun and incredibly easy prep. There are many different ways to do resist art and it’s a great art project for kids of all ages, including preschoolers and toddlers too.

Our first attempt at resist art we created magically appearing spider webs. It was so much fun and another opportunity to use our homemade watercolors; a new go to favorite which you can read more about here too.

Magic Spider Web Resist Art Materials needed:

Watercolor Paper
Watercolors
a white oil pastel (or crayon)
Paintbrushes

I started with cutting our A3 watercolor sheets into 4. Then onto each page, I drew a spider web shape using the white oil pastel. Older children could easily do this for themselves. The pattern is actually pretty simple and they could even copy one or have a crack at creating their own version.

Next the really fun part is adding color to the web. There are all sorts of ways that children can get creative with this. Adding random blotches, strips, streaks. Whatever they do, the outcome will be amazing.

After we had a play around with the white oil pastel, the kids wanted to experiment with other colors of oil pastel too. Then when our artwork dried we added some glitter for some added pizzazz.

This is another really great confidence building project for kids. There really is no right or wrong way to color this, and even children who ‘think’ they aren’t good at art will produce a piece that they can be proud of. Our scribble monster art activity is also another great confidence boosting art project for young kids.
