Fun Fine Motor Spider Webs

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I love the look of spider webs, and they are such a beautiful work of art. Here are some spider webs made out of pipe cleaner and popsicle sticks. You place the popsicle sticks (or other pipe cleaners) in cross patterns and duct tape them together. Then you wind the pipe cleaner around in a pattern to make the spider web.


It is quite a visual motor challenge to get the pipe cleaner wrapped around correctly, but the great thing about them is that it still looks like a (wonky) spider web even if you don’t wrap them correctly.


Then you have to make a little wad of pipe cleaner to use as a spider and place some googly eyes on it.


You can just use pipe cleaners as well if you don’t want to make the base out of the pipe cleaners.

  1. I love that these incorporate so much sensory involvement what with the colors and textures. What might be a good way to grade this activity if the child having issues with the texture of the pipe cleaners? I was thinking possibly yarn but that may also greatly increase the motor difficulties.
