Here are several fun arts and crafts spider web activities to share with your little ones. Spiders create beautiful complex webs that children will enjoy creating as well.
It's easy to tie these spider web activities to a couple of famous nursery rhymes. Practice learing Little Miss Muffet or the Itsy Bitsy (Incy Wincy) Spider as the two of you create these fun webs.
Here's what you'll need for the project:
Cut the paper to fit in the bottom of the box.
Put a dollop of their favorite color paint onto the paper.
Place the marble in the box.
Have your child move the box around so that the marble rolls through the paint in various directions creating their very own spider web.
When they have finished, remove the marble and allow their web to dry.
This creates beautiful refrigerator art!
This arts and crafts project is great to help your little one with their finger dexterity.
Here's what you'll need on hand:
Cut the card stock into a circle about 10" in diameter.
Have your little one use the one hole punch to make holes around the outer edge of the circle.
Tie a small knot into one end of the yarn.
Have your child thread the yarn through the holes, starting on the back side of the circle to create their own web.
Once their web is complete, tie off the end and have them add their spider.
This arts and crafts activity is lots of fun!
See how many bugs their web will catch!
Here's what you'll need to get going:
Have your little one draw their own web with the white crayon on the dark paper.
Once they have finished drawing their web, have them add glue dots at various places on the web.
What a great early morning dew look this creates.
Now they can toss their bugs at the web and see how many the web will catch!

Children love to play as they learn! Whether that's clapping to the rhythym of the verse, acting out the characters, playing games or creating great artwork!
We would love to hear about games, arts and crafts, fingerplays, anything that you do with your special little one to make nursery rhymes a fun interactive learning activity.
We know our mom's and grandma's have great ways to entertain while teaching their children and grandchildren.
