Inspired from Eric Carle's The Very Busy Spider, children will learn how to create their own spider web with the use of plastic plates and yarn!

Step 1

Gather the materials.

Step 2

Parents will cut 6-8 slits on the circumference of each plate and prepare 50cm of yarn (for 1 spider).

Step 3

Child to select (any coloured) yarn to begin. Next, the parent will tape the tip of the yarn to the back of the plate.

Step 4

Child to ‘wrap’ the plate with yarn by going through each slit 2-3 times. Don’t worry, the messier the better!

Step 5

Once the child is done, the parent will tape the end of the yarn to the back of the plate.
