Simple Spider Web

Create this simple and easy spider web in your home.

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Lay 2 four-legged chairs on their back as shown in the picture. Take the white thread and wrap it around the chair legs to create a "web."

    Then cut a few straws into pieces that are about 1-2 inches long. Cut one side of the straw lengthwise. Open the straw and put it on the web. Repeat with the other pieces.

    Using black paper, create a spider. Attach it to one of the straws with glue and allow to dry. Then attach it to the web as done earlier.

  • Done!

    Finally, when you are done and ready to clean up, allow your child to practice his small motor skills by cutting away the web. This was by far my child's favorite part!
