Oh Amma, Does Ms Skinny legs need help?ï¸_x008f_ Yes, we call spiders, Ms Skinny legs, just the way Peppa calls them.
Junior is not a big fan of threading but spiders & their webs always amaze my boy. So I thought why not give it a shot!? We decided to make a spider web using things lying in the house. I always teach him concepts while keeping him entertained. Learning becomes so much better and faster when they’re having fun. Don’t you agree?
What Did He Learn
- More about numbers
- Improved concentration
- Helped with fine motor skills
- Spoke a lot of facts about spiders during the play.
Things You Will Need
- Cardboard or any thick paper
- Red pen
- Paper cutter
- Black wool
- Punching machine
- Black pompom
- ï¸_x008f_Traced a circle using a plate.
- Trimmed it using a cutter.
- Gave a red border using a marker.
- I did not plan to buy a spider figurine, so decided to use a black pom-pom and cardboard to make one (oops drew 6 limbs instead of 8) which of course caught my son’s attention and he corrected me a few times during the play.
- Punched few holes using a punching machine and numbered them 1-24, so that he could connect all the numbers and viola, we built a spider web.
- Tied black coloured wool to a toothpick for him to pierce through comfortably.
Even when this was time-consuming, I was happy he was willing to finish & actually did finish the activity. We did it together. By the end of it, the spider slowly crawled up the finished web with my happy boy’s help.
