Preschool Spider Web Craft to make together this fall

Autumn brings out so many spiders and J is fascinated by them so when he asked to make a spiders web I said of course. This is a very simple preschool spider web craft that with just a little guidance J was able to do on his own.

How you make the preschool spider web craft

We started off by using a hole punch – this is a new activity for J and he loved punching the holes around the edge of the paper plate, I would show you our first paper plate but as it’s in 2 pieces because of the amount of holes produced I’m afriad it has been recycled and the punched holes maybe being added to a craft in the future (in other words I have saved them!). Then I cut out some leaves from autumn coloured paper which J then glued to a paper plate – when we have been hunting for spiders they have always been on the shrubs in the garden so he wanted to make sure that his web was on a shrub as well.

We then put it aside to let it dry. I then created a needle for the threading from a pipe cleaner (I need to get a few plastic needles for some early sewing as J is getting quite good at threading) and thread some yarn into it. With J helping we created a secure point by tying a knot around the outside of one of the holes and then J threaded his spiders web across and between the holes.

Once he had run out of yarn we tied a knot at the last hole and then went and created the spider. Using a large pompom J created 8 legs with small pipe cleaners which he wound around and made little feet with. We then added the essential googley eyes which according to J had to be 3 eyes and attached it to the spider’s web right in the middle just as the spiders that we had seen in the bushes were placed.
