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.
- 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.
Favorite Printable Supplies:
These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:
- White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
- Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
- Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
- Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
- Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
- Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
- Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
