Spiders and Webs on the Light Table

This is a total Pinterest-inspired Halloween activity. I saw this idea of building spiderwebs on the light table from the blog “And Next Comes L”. It looked like a lot of fun, but I knew that Trevor would get frustrated trying to make webs out of yarn. Mr. Literal gets mad when things don’t look exactly the way they’re supposed to. So I took inspiration from another post on the same blog to make Trevor some spiderwebs for this activity. And all you need is a glue gun!

Using my glue gun I drew out four spiderwebs on top of some parchment paper. I also shook a little glitter on each before they hardened. They look great on the light table! Trevor had a blast with them. The spiders I used were glow-in-the-dark plastic spiders from the Dollar Tree. They also illuminate quite nicely on our light table.

We had so much doing this light table activity. The spiders reminded Trevor of the book “The Very Busy Spider” by Eric Carle, so I grabbed that book off our bookshelf and read it to him. Them we acted out all of the scenes in the book on the light table!
