Simple spiders our preschoolers made

Our preschoolers enjoyed working with the paper tubes since we haven’t done much with them this school year so far…

The children started by cutting the spider legs on one end of the paper tubes.  They were supposed to see if they could come up with eight legs but in the end, we had all kinds of spider legs going on…

After they cut their spider legs, then they painted their spiders any color they liked. We had red, green, purple, and pink spiders. Nobody wanted a black spider…

And after the paint dried, we added googly eyes to finish our spiders…

We also tried making a few with cut up paper towel tubes and that worked just as well!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
