I ended up making my son a spider sandwich that day at lunch after reading this book that morning.
This was not planned ahead. I just grabbed things we had on hand to make the best spider looking sandwich I could. I used cheese puffs as legs, m&m's as eyes(you could use raisins), and a glass to make the circle for the body.
This is how I cut out the body in above picture.
Big brother helped me add the cheese puff legs and I added the m&m's as eyes. We did peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He really liked it and ate the whole thing!
Simple spider activity from the heart:
I didn't have any spider activities planned for us. When big brother's great grandma stopped by for a visit that week they came up with an unplanned activity. It is so simple but so precious to me. While reading they drew pictures of spiders and webs. I love that they bonded over this book. My grandma is here visiting from Florida. We love any time we can spend with her. I love that her and big brother'so to activity seems to be reading. When she got here she brought gifts & books! Yay, we love books. So if you are looking for a simple activity to go with a book draw a picture with your child:-)
Drawing the web.
Priceless memories made while reading a book.
I know big brother enjoyed his time with Grams this day and I know I will hold this memory in my heart forever.
What are some fun spider activities you love.
