If you would like to reuse these pages…

After I printed these spider pages for my littles, I laminated them, so my kids can use them over and over again. You can easily do this at home too. You can use washable markers and crayons on the laminated pages, and then wipe them clean with a damp paper towel, baby wipe, or cloth when you are done.

Spider Color Matching

Spider Parts Pages

This set includes four pages total: two labeled spider pages (one with a black spider image and red text as well as one page with a multicolor image and text. In addition, there are two pages for practicing labeling parts. One page includes words your child can cut out and paste onto the corresponding parts of the spider. For more advanced learners, the other page features a spider image with blank boxes for your child to write in the corresponding spider parts. The spider parts covered are: legs, opisthosoma (abdomen), spinnerets, pedicel, eyes, chelicera (fangs), pedipalps, and cephalothorax (head body).


  • For writing tasks, I recommend allowing your child to use the writing utensil with which he/she is most comfortable (crayons, colored pencils, markers, etc.) If your little one is still working on using the proper grip, then shorter, chunkier utensils (such as a fat crayon or marker) will help. Long, skinny utensils are more difficult to grasp.
  • If you are going to laminate and reuse the pages, I highly suggest using washable markers and crayons. In my experience, the non-washable markers and crayons are not easily removable from lamination. I have only tried Crayola brand washable markers; however, I would guess that other washable markers would be water soluble and would work the same, if you want to try a different brand.
  • I have tried dry erase markers on laminated pages but was not impressed with how difficult it is to remove the ink when my kids are done writing. I had to use rubbing alcohol, and it still didn’t come off completely. So, I don’t recommend dry erase markers.
