Homemade Spider Web

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

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!

Skill Level: Easy

Suitable For: 3-4 years old

Estimated Time: < 15 mins

Environment: Indoors


  • Plastic Disposable Plates

  • Yarn (about 50cm per spider)

  • Scissors

  • Tape

Step 1:

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

Step 2:

The child will begin by selecting coloured yarn of his/her choice. Next, the parents will tape the tip of the yarn to the back of the plate.

Step 3:

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

Step 4:

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