Making spider webs



“I think I can make 6 holes. I made 9 holes. That’s more. Spiders eat flies. You need to put it up the way and pull it right out.”


The children noticed the webs the spiders had been spinning in the garden. This led to an interest in creating their own webs using paper plates, a hole punch and some wool. The children learned how to use the hole punch and were estimating how many holes they could create around the plate, they showed great skill and perseverance when threading the wool. They were so focussed and were developing their fine motor skills through this experience.


“I made a hole. Four. It’s hard. Green wool.”
