Blindfolds and lots of activities…

After last weeks web activities, we remembered a special fact-that spiders don’t have good eyesight. We decided to be spiders…so we used a blindfold to cover our eyes and tried to do what spiders do…feel when an insect has landed on their web, by feeling the vibrations they make.

First we played a game, the ‘flies’ tried to creep their hands along the rope, without the ‘spider’ noticing. We got better and better at this, until we managed to make the spider jump!

Then it got harder! We took turns to lead our spider friends along the long rope, sometimes alongside, sometimes inside it. We had to tell them when to stop, and needed to look after them on the way.

This clever spider managed to find his way through our huge string web, just by listening to and following instructions

Also today… we all decorated the wood cookies we had previously cut, ready to take home to our parents and carers.

Plus, more stick and wool webs, spider soup in the mud kitchen (no real spiders were harmed!) and an adventure, with a brave bit of climbing thrown in for good measure!
