    Gather supplies and prep area with newspapers--this one is a little messy! Blow up the balloon slightly (you don't need a large balloon for this web).

  • Step 2

    Spray the balloon with a light even coat of oil. This will help the yarn from not sticking to the balloon later on.

  • Step 3

    Pour glue into a large bowl. Note: You will use almost a full bottle of glue for this project. So let your kid squirt away!

  • Step 4

    Gather about 50 feet (15.2 m) of yarn and toss it in the bowl of glue. You want the yarn soaked in glue, so mix the yarn a lot and make sure it is all covered.

  • Step 5

    Wrap the yarn around the balloon in various directions and multiple times. The more wraps you do, the stronger it will be.
