oh what a tangled web we weave

Every morning we are greeted with spider's webs glistening with dew all over the playground, so we decided to have a crack at making our own web.


Using an idea shamelessly stolen from Teacher Tom, we upturned a small table and put out a basket filled with balls of wool.  I started them off by tying a length of wool to each of the legs.

The kids wove and wove and wove, in and under and around - adding different colours to the mix.

As the morning went on, the web started to migrate around the corner.

And caught a lot of children in the process. 

It bought back memories of the web making frenzy that gripped preschool a couple of years ago.

Kristen from the wonderful Preschool Daze creates some amazing webs with her preschoolers.

Deborah from Teach Preschool shares spider webs woven from yarn onto styrofoam plates.

Brilliant Beginnings Preschool created a spiders web using yarn and a table top.

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics
    to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.

    A fantastic read. I'll definitely be back.
