Spider Web Collaborative

Using yarn and clothespins (with pictures of spiders on them), we created our very own spider web!

This was a collaborative group project, and your little one enjoyed making our back yard a little more festive by attaching clothespins onto white yarn that represented the silk of a spider’s web!

This activity incorporated the developmental domain of fine motor movement.  When attaching the clothespins to the yarn, your little one was practicing fine motor control and hand eye coordination.

The importance of hand eye coordination lies in your child’s ability to manipulate their environment.  Simple hand-eye coordination techniques, such as weaving, beading, and manipulating small objects, are a great way to help your little one learn how to control their mind and their hands.

These skills are transferable to literacy, and when your little student is then exposed to holding a pencil, crayon or pair of scissors, the coordination will be in place.
