Materials: String or yarn, 6 x 6 in. pieces of string and 4 12 in. pieces of string, diluted white glue or liquid starch, dishes, waxed paper
Activity: Let the children dip pieces of string into dishes of glue or starch. Then have them lay their strings on waxed paper to create the spider's web. Lay the string in the shape of a spiral over-lapping the ends. Lay the large pieces of string over the spiral in the shape of a cross. When the strings dry, they will become stiff and hold their shapes.
