This spider web lacing craft is a great activity to work on at home or in the classroom. Included is a free printable template that makes this a super easy project to have your child or students put together. It is helpful to improve fine motor skills as well as counting.
My preschooler absolutely loves numbers and counting and so I knew I had to create a fun activity for him where he not only got to count but also work on his fine motor skills, all while create a fun project we can hang up and display around the house.
Materials needed to create one spider web lacing craft:
- Free printable web and spider (the download link is located at the bottom of this post)
- White cardstock
- A hole punch
- White yarn
How to set up the project:
First, print out the spider web template onto white cardstock. Using cardstock is highly recommended as it is much more durable and less likely to easily rip as opposed to standard printer paper.
Once the web template printed, cut out the inside and outside of the web as well as the spider along the dotted lines.
Next, using a hole punch, punch out the dots below each number. If your child is able to, having them punch out the holes would also be a great activity for them.
Use a piece of white yarn and begin lacing through each number 1-16 in order to create the spider web.
Tape the ends of the yarn to to the back of the web to hold in place and then attach the spider on top.
