Here’s How to Make Your Spider Web Weaving Board:
Cut out a piece of cardboard. You can cut it in a circular shape to make it look more like a spider web, or stick with a simple rectangle.
Next, use a paper punch to make holes on the perimeter of your piece of cardboard.
Tie a knot on the back of the board to secure your piece of twine or string.
Create the web by threading the twine through the paper punched holes. Make sure to pull the twine to keep it tight on the board.
When you are all finished making your web, tie it on the back of the board.
Add a spider and you are ready for weaving! If you don’t have a spider, you can always draw one on the board.
Now for the REALLY fun part! Head to your yard and search for different objects to weave into your web. Since we are in between seasons, we found a wide variety of nature to weave.
We talked about the different colors, textures, and names of the pieces of nature. We also discussed which objects were easiest to weave.
When you are finished, you can either press your pieces of nature on the board or remove the pieces of nature and reuse the board another day!
Pin it and save it for later!
I hope you give this simple nature activity a try! I promise, your little nature lovers will love this one.
