My Grade 3s created these happy little spiders in rainbow webs inspired by this activity on Artsonia by Gateway Elementary. This is a great activity for Halloween but one that kids enjoy any time of year.
They first learned to create a pattern using line to draw their web. Students then used coloured pencils, crayons and textas to colour the different areas inside their web.
Once they had completed colouring their web students created their own spider by making a mini pompom. Making a mini pompom using a fork is a great little textile activity for this age group.
If you haven't seen this before you can see the instructions here at 'Jellyfish Prints'.
My students made spider legs from pipe cleaners and added googly eyes to complete. Students glued their spider to their web drawing.
