A month or two ago, we used our hands to make spiders. We painted the boys’ hands and then placed it on the paper. Once it dried we drew the spider web around it. its a simple fun idea for anyone working on learning about spiders. For those with younger children can sing the Itsy Bitsy Spider, learn about what spiders eat and how they live.
This was part of our S letter of the week. You can take this idea and expand on it. Talk about the spider web and how spiders trap their food.
We also have one of those scrub balls, the children was ripping it apart one day and when I walked in I didn’t get upset but instantly thought hey, this would make a great spider web 🙂 I collected it off the floor and hid for the next art activity. The bath scrub ball is blue but I will let the boys dip it in black paint and then glue it on the construction paper. This is an idea I want to try with the children. Look for that picture soon
I took this picture with my cell phone but hey you get the picture 😉
