Red Caboose Child Care Center, Inc. in Madison, Wisconsin did this spider legs counting game that all the students loved! This game helped the preschoolers with developing their counting-skills, number recognition, and building-up their fine motor abilities.
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!
Spiders are great fun to talk about and do crafts related to during Halloween season! At Brighten Academy Preschool in Clovis, California they made a number of great spider-crafts that your class can create too!
These Halloween silhouettes which you place on paper plates is an easy craft which is great for all ages!
Many species of spiders are known for weaving webs to catch insects such as flies. At Parents Nursery School in Palo Alto, California they simulated this with a fun outdoor activity that is great for preschoolers!
