The boys had been noticing all the fake spider webs that neighbors had been using for Halloween decoration. I looked through my pinterest boards and found something that was perfect activity for the kids to do.
Using masking tape (which I get at the dollar store), I made a spider web on the corner of one of the archways in our house. Then I gave the boys pieces of paper with either letters or numbers written on them. The boys would read off what was written on the paper, crumple it, and throw it at the spider web. The point then was to get the crumpled paper to stick in the web. It was great gross motor skill practice with throwing and letter/number practice too. We ended up using a chair in the end to get the boys throws closer to the web. They got so excited when it actually stuck.
It will be an activity that will be “on deck” next year too. I can imagine sight words in addition to the letter and numbers. 😉
