Spider Web Counting Activity

spider web counting activity

Let’s get spooky and count some spiders! This spider web counting game is a wonderful way to strengthen number sense. By placing a numbered group of spiders on its corresponding web, children demonstrate number quantity knowledge – the understanding that the written number “5” means five objects. Furthermore, this activity helps to develop counting, one-to-one correspondence, and number recognition skills.

So collect some creepy crawlers and download our free numbered spider webs! For heavy use, I recommend printing on cardstock and lamination.

DIY Art Center Yarn Cans

diy art center yarn cans

I put together these cute yarn cans for my self-help art shelf. They are easy to make and keep the yarn contained and neat. I used plastic mason jars, but any plastic container with a lid will do. Simply fill the container with yarn, poke a hole in the lid, and pull a small amount of yarn through the hole. The children can then pull out the length of yarn they want, and cut with scissors (this may take some supervision with younger children). Finally, label the can with the corresponding color name of yarn.

MATERIALS USED:

– Yarn
– Plastic containers with lids
Our free color labels
