  • Tape 1 end of the yarn to the back of the plate.
  • Show your child how to wrap the yarn across the front and back of the plate, inserting it into the slits, to make a web.
  • Make sure the web doesn't cover the spider.
  • When the web is finished, trim any excess yarn and tape the end to the back of the plate.
  • If you like, glue plastic insects onto the web.
