For our craft this week, I just had to pull out one of my favorites from my archives. This tactile spider craft was inspired by The Very Busy Spiderby Eric Carle and was originally posted on my personal blog. I guarantee with a little prep work, your child will love it. Enjoy.
This week one of our library books was The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle. This story is about a spider who is busy spinning her web. My son really loved the fact that he could feel the web the spider was spinning.
For our art project we recreated the spiders web.
Now there was some prep work on my part, but it was well worth it. To prep for this you will need blue finger paint, a black crayon and…
Create a spider web using the glue gun on the finger painting paper. Set aside to cool and dry. While you wait have your child color the brown construction paper with a black crayon. It adds texture to your fence posts. (I cut mine first and it was harder for him to color it.)
Then bring the spider web over and add a glob of blue finger paint. Let you child spread the blue paint around, while feeling the bumpy spider web. While they are doing this, cut 4 strips from the brown construction paper for the fence posts.
