Itsy bitsy spider day in preschool

Today was itsy bitsy spider day in preschool! There were spiders on the floor, spiders on the tables, spiders in the centers – spiders everywhere!

While the two year olds sang the “Itsy Bitsy Spider” song, they made the paper spider climb up the water spout (paper towel tube).

Then they played with the spiders on the spiderweb taped to the floor!

The children marbled painted spider webs on black construction paper…

Then made black spiders with their handprints…

A few silly spiders with eight legs were made by our Kindergarten children…

And a little spider web sensory play…

Thank you to Strong Start for their spiderweb on the floor and to Mother Huddle for the handprint spider and to House of Baby Piranha for the spider web marble painting and to Gone Bananas for the paper cup spiders!
