They Creep, They Crawl, They're Spiders!

We had so much fun learning about spiders a couple of weeks ago & I realized that {duh!} I forgot to post my spider unit and our little art project here on my blog!

We had so much fun creating spiders from coffee filters to accompany our "Spiders: can, have, are" writing activity.  It's super easy ... here's how:

1. Select coffee filter and have kids scribble {with desired colors} all over it with WASHABLE markers.  YES THEY GET TO SCRIBBLE!! It is important to use washable markers so the the colors bleed well.

2.  Spray the coffee filter with water until lightly saturated.  Watch the colors bleed into each other.
3. Place on napkin and allow to dry.

4. Add details.
TA DA! You have your very own coffee filter spider!

To accompany this ... I am offering my MASSIVE, I MEAN MASSIVE, Spider Bundle.  Look at all that is included in this 58 page bundle for $4.99!!
