Go on a spiderweb hunt. Take a walk and explore outside. How many spiderwebs can you find?
Create a glitter spider web. Years ago I did this activity with my girls and they loved it. I’ll have to try it out with LM.
Read the Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle and make a crayon spiderweb rubbing. The webs on the book are raised so be sure to point this out while reading, so your child can feel the pages.
After reading the story, place a piece of white paper on top of the web. Have your child use a black or orange crayon to create a rubbing of the picture. Works best with a crayon on it’s side. Now they have their own spider web! They can draw a spider on it or push a plastic spider ring through the paper for a 3D effect.
Make your own life size spider web with yarn. Last year, my kids surprised Momma with this…
