I picked up a large plastic spider skeleton at the Dollar Tree but you can buy one on Amazon if you want. Because the one I picked up was a tan color I painted him all black.

Next you’ll need to make your little spider web. Overlap in the middle and glue 3 craft sticks together in the shape of a star like you see above. Paint them white. Then just wrap a long piece of white yarn around the web weaving in and out between each stick.

Now you’re ready to begin building your spider web sensory bin! First place your container on the table and add long strands of white yarn. Sprinkle in your small toy spiders and your one large mama spider.

Now it’s time to play! You can hand the spiders from your yarn web. Wrap them all together to make a spider egg sac, or count how many spiders you have!
