Here's a quick and fun introduction to weaving for preschoolers using an unusual loom. Create your own giant spider web on the legs of a chair and make your own scary spider for the web.

Ready to weave


Tie one end of the wool or string on to one leg.
Let the children create a web by winding the wool or string backwards and forwards across the four chair legs.

To create a spider body, we stuffed a black sock with crumpled paper, making a ball shape.

Glue on google eyes.
Attach eight spider legs by sewing or gluing them on to the body. We made ours from strips of black raffia. You could also try black pipe cleaners.

Once the spider is finished, nestle it into the web. You can turn the chair over and use it normally with the web at the base until you're ready to take it down.
