Spider Theme

All of these activities and crafts incorporate a theme of spiders into them as either a part of or focus of the activity/craft. Spiders are fascinating creatures thanks to having unique bodies and because of how they are able to weave beautiful webs. By using a spider theme it can really catch the attention of students and also works great around Halloween when spiders and other creepy-creatures are often focused on!
