This shiny spider web art activity is so simple! Big Brother had tons of fun creating various “webs”, especially after we looked at several online. I was inspired by our shiny fishbowls we made back when we celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
I can’t stand spiders, but I definitely have an appreciation and fascination for their beautifully intricate webs. This would be a fun project to do after investigating spider webs around your house…especially if the webs have dew on them since that is what the art looks like!
Here’s what you’ll need: Light Corn Syrup, black construction paper, and a squeeze bottle of some sort.
1. Carefully pour your corn syrup into the squeeze bottle (or use a funnel).
2. Give your child the squeeze bottle and let him/her get started making their webs.
Allow the corn syrup to dry for at least 12-24 hours.
I cut a few pieces of pipe cleaner and quickly created a makeshift spider to add to our webs.
